How do you separate your personal desires from what your parents want for you? What are we but responses to our parents issues? We either perpetuate their issues, rebel against them or turn them into something positive, or negative. But they are always there, hanging heavy like a soaking wet towel that never dries. Hopefully as time rolls on it becomes easier to distinguish ourselves from our parents shortcomings, but I dont think I believe that we can truly ever wriggle free.

P.S.-this is an old post that I wanted to re-post in case you missed it.


  1. so true.
    thanks for the re-post.

  2. thanks for the re-post. if this isn't an argument to study history, especially personal history, i don't know what is... if we all appear tall, it's only because each of us stands on the shoulders of those who have come before us
