This month is the anniversary of my fathers death. I probably have this idealized view of what it is like to have parents. But when I imagine them I think of people who would tell me what to do, let me know when I am doing something stupid, and who also offer unsolicited advice on my life choices without regard to hurting my feelings. Just real truth. I love it when people are nice to me and praise me but I think missed out on the emotional damage that I’m told parents can cause😉.
