I think it’s funny how when we were kids, we thought our parents knew it all. We thought they were in complete control of their lives and our families, and that they knew how to solve every problem. That they had a set of skills they would teach us as we got older and that once we would be their age, we would know how to face every situation.
And yet, the older we get, the more we realize that they’re just trying to do the best they can to figure out how to deal with life, just like us. There are some questions they don’t have the answers to, and for the most part, they’re really just playing it by ear, much like we are.
And in some ways, that gives me immense respect for them.
