Wayward Son

Children begin by loving their parents. After a time they judge them. Rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.—Oscar Wilde

I was trapped in parent-child relationship conversation this late evening at Carrefour’s pujasera.
Yeah, with bunches of my fellow jerks, you know who you are pals!

Somehow, we had quite a conversation, actually:

My old man spanks me when I misspelled the “ABCD”. So now, I grow up as a rude person.

My mother never breast-feeding me, even though she could. I get very serious ill during my childhood.

I think, my father only love my youngest brother.

I score some sh*ts, but they don’t give a damn thing about it.

Sounds familiar ?

It is interesting to see how we blame our parent about what they were, or about they we’re not. What they give, or give not.

Heh.. I was such a wayward son back then :)
My mom is the moon, and my dad is the sun. They’re just can’t be together.

But still, they’re my lights in the end of the tunnel. Always.

Happy weekend, guys.

Carry on my wayward son There’ll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don’t you cry no more No! —Kansas

It's easier to blame our parents for what we have become, but people tend to forget to thank them for what we have achieved.

My parents are my couch, tough, as they know how tough can life be. I am sure they love as I have learned to love them :)

Yah, kalo aku mikirnya sih sekarang, gimana cara kita menjadi orang tua yang sebaik, bahkan sebisa mungkin lebih baik daripada orang tua kita sendiri.

Dan sejak aku sendiri punya anak, jadi lebih bisa ngerti jalan pikiran orang tuaku. Jadi ngerti kenapa mereka begini dan begitu dulu dan sekarang. Jadi ngerti kenapa mereka melarang atau menyuruh, walupun belum tentu aku setuju dan bakal melakukan hal yang sama.

Andry : Sama ! This thing is getting heavier everyday :)

Hey, welcome back .. *you're no longer stumbled upon right
Parental conversation .. hmm .. I was in that inferior mode many centuries ago, but things changed when my Mom passed away. Very late, and I know I'd never forgive myself for not being able to make her happier ..

Andry : Hehe.. apparently, Im managed to survive hehe

after all, parents are only human. And children would become parents, until then they wouldn't understand.
