I just wanted to say this to the universe, which is basically what you do whenever you post something online, my parents are the greatest.
My mum’s off on vacation, visiting my older sister in Canada which leaves just me, my brother and my dad back at home. Awkward? Well, sometimes when I have a date but other times? Its pure brilliance.
Never once has either one of my parents been ‘better’ than the other in that, I choose to talk to one instead of the other. I have always thanked whoever it is up there everyday for my parents. They’re open-minded, loving, with the times, they understand, they respect us and most of all, no matter what we’ve done, and I know I’ve messed up quite a bit, they will ALWAYS love you.
I’m just getting out of a very deep talk with my Dad so I’m writing this one pure emotion without a double take.
He talked to my brother and I about life. And I know what you’re thinking, “another life talk from a parent…”, but this is the thing, my Dad, he sure knows what he’s talking about.
It’s nothing we all don’t know. No matter how many of those ‘people who have a problem with me can go fuck themselves’ pictures and posts, the fact is that we should care. Or atleast care about our parents in everything we do.
Perception and opinion is a funny thing in that while we wouldn’t care what people think about us, there’s someone out there who does and we should respect. I agree that always thinking in the back of your head to mind everything you’re doing can be frustrating and a bit of a burden, in the end it no doubt pays off. When it comes down to it, you’re also protecting yourself and the ones you love.
My Dad has gone through a hard life and he knows what its like to have a parent who’s always on your back just making your life harder; that’s probably why he’s always been the way he is - spectacular.
I realise I started off the post about my parents but I’m just gonna accept that this basically turned into an “I love my Daddy” post and ain’t nothing wrong with that.
To everyone out there, whether you have the same close relationship with your parents or not, just remember that they love you, they care for you and no matter how much it seems that they’re nagging, it’s really for our own good.
…its sad that it took adulthood for me to finally get that.
Love you Dad :)
