We don’t all get the chance to follow in someone else’s footsteps. Or get the change to follow a path that someone has already been through. I have that chance. Throughout my life my dad and my mom have been mentors and the base of my life. I had always followed in their footprints with my own and tried to leave a trail that will make them proud.
When you have three kids it is hard to deal with the stress and responsibility it takes to handle them, and as a little kid it is hard to know what your parent are going through and how you can help them go through it. As you grow you come to realize that they have done more for you than anyone has ever done in your lives and you never can pay back that kindness and relationship your parents have given you, but you can try. Wisdom comes with age and with that wisdom you are able to realize what you have put your parents through. Some may never have the strength of being a parent that loves and cares for a kid, but if you do it is a large and loving commitment.
When I was a kid, I was the kind that would run off when parents weren’t looking and I would scream and shout at anyone and anything at any time. And my parents didn’t only have to deal with me but also had to deal with two other brothers similar. One time I went to an aquarium with my whole family when I was really little, about 4 years old. My parents said that I saw a really cool fish at the aquarium and when they weren’t looking I ran to go and find that fish. I eventually got lost form my family. My parent then searched all over the aquarium and ask many people if they had seen me. They eventually found me and we left right after because I was crying so much because I was scared.
Loving parents do what is necessary for keeping you safe and protected from whatever hits. They will protect you at any means necessary. Being a parent is one of the hardest things someone can do and even though I have never been a parent I can see the responsibility and love it takes in order to be a good one.
Not everyone has parents that take care of them and love them as much as mine. I am lucky to have been put in a situation that I can thrive and be protected and supported by people that love me.
Now that I am older I see that parent do so much more than take care of you. They show you a path that leads to success and they help you trough that path no matter what it takes.
