Parents

‚ÄúThere is a big difference between loving your parents as a child and loving your parents as an adult. As a child you love unconditionally, loving them as gods, beings perfect in all regards. As time wears on that perfect image fades, you begin to see the flaws, they no longer are the gods they once were. As an adult it’s not that you come to love them any less however, instead, you begin to love them for what they are, as human beings.”

“I want to be good” the phrase, such a simple want, something a child would say. Yet as one grows older, one comes to realize that for such a simple want, it is very difficult one to be. Five words do not speak of a lifetime struggle, there is a cruel trickery in that, for all the easiness in wanting them they are that much more arduous to achieve.
