Do i honour my mother and father?
Am i Honouring my mum and dad?
This is difficult.. In the past i always felt that everything l i did was inadequate for my mother and inparticular my fathers liking.. I could try as hard as i could to try and gain their approval, but it never appeared to work! In fact it was obvious to many that it was the opposite, rather his disapproval that i accomplished!
Now, years later while i held fast to who i am.. who they helped to shape, i understand that i am a stronger person. It was there own personal trials as well as their strengths that helped to shape the person i have become. For that i am thankful and there were many other things to be thankful to them for!
As an adult i can better see the strengths they both had and i love them for those, as well as their difficulties...
Am i honouring them? I would like to think so.. I am in some things and yet i still feel that my dad would not approve of other choices i have made.. Yet all i can do is strive to do the best i can.. sometimes i will succeed and sometimes i wont.. But i will keep trying!
