to all parents

 

“… I know what you must be thinking now. You’re asking yourself: What did we do wrong? How did we let this happen? Which one of us made him that way? I can’t answer that, Mama. In the long run, I guess I really don’t care. All I know is this: If you and Papa are responsible for the way I am, then I thank you with all my heart, for it’s the light and the joy of my life. …”

    1. I can’t pretend to know what it’s like to be a parent for I am not one. But, as a child, all I ever want is my parents’ approval, to make them proud and to be loved for who I am. And, I think, that comes from my insecurity of not being who I think they want me to be.
