This took me way too long to do. Had I appreciated my parents when I was younger, I doubt that I would’ve gone through all these hardships that I am and have gone through. Not that they were right on everything, but they were right on enough major things that it took me years to test and get wrong.
I’m now far too old to keep making mistakes due to being unwilling to learn from other people’s mistakes.
Even when they say something that I don’t like, I now take the time to listen and perhaps there is some validity in what they are saying. I’ve been doing a lot of reframing and changing my perspective.
