In my younger years, I couldnt wait to grow up!
Grown ups knew every thing!
They were not afraid of anyone and neither did they lie!
Grown ups didn’t make mistakes and best of all they didn’t have to do the homework!
Truth ironically, turned out to be way different than I thought (just like most things!).
Grown ups don’t have it easy in any thing!
Sure they don’t have to worry about pety homework, but their entire life is defined by the work they have to do most part of their day. They constantly lie. They make mistakes that probably have higher impacts then they themselves are aware of and without even knowing they are creating a new world for us every single day.
Take parents for example, I have cribbed for years for the mistakes my parents have made in bringing me up, from the frailty of my body to the constant emotional upheaval of my mind. The choices I have made or basically who I am, is impacted so much by who my parents are.
Aren’t parents suppose to know it all?
Yet, they and yes, I do mean all of them (good or bad) scar their children for life. Some with the abuses the child didn’t deserve, others with love that child got without working hard.
But then, whatever I am today, it is because of where I have been and who have raised me. All my scares, good or bad, make me an individual. Individual, my parents are proud of.
Now a days every thing I do, I keep in mind, its My job, to let go of things that pull me down and polish the goodness my elders have worked so hard to instill in me.
So if I could go back in time, I would give my parents a break from all the silly complaints and tell them, what a fine job they have done in raising us all. (I do it now as often as I can)
