One of the first people you meet in your life who teaches you what it means to make someone else proud of you in life is your Father, for some reason thats their job. And whether you understand why you feel the necessity to make them proud you do, whether thats through sports or school, accolades, awards, jobs, or graduations, it is them who you first seek approvals from in life to know and understand whether you are doing a good job in life. Its by your Fathers recommendations you worry less, dont overthink, lighten up, keep going, keep applying yourself, and reminded that everything is okay, especially when you feel like your life is in chaos, and especially during moments when you feel powerless, like your life is over, and that you gave your best and it wasnt good enough, thats what Dads are for, they have been through everything, failure and back, breakups, business stresses, career changes, money losses, money gains, and still they were able to make a family, and because of who they are, you are here today, because they made good choices in life, and you are always considered a product of those good choices in life, until you decide otherwise. In your 20s you dont understand the pressure that hits you in your 30s, when your Parents get older, and life feels shorter, wishing you had spent more time being successful than the moments spent in failure, and wishing you had taken their advice more than the times you decided to rebel and take chances with your career and your livelihood. In any family there is always an unwritten agreement to do what is in their best interests, whether you sign on to the task or not, it always feels like your life is geared on the basis of those who are successful in your family, not geared by your your failures in life tended to, that you learn on your own, although they may seem strong like they have good lives, your life matters to them too, whether or not you are successful, doing well, married, with a job, or home in bed, still trying to figure out life for yourself. Your family is the only group of people who wont let you go out, date, and get used up, unlike your friends, who generally wont tell you what to do in life, only support you in every decision you make, whether or not you get hurt, still there for you, a family is the only group of people, who recognizes when things are off, and sets you back on course because its their job to care for you, not to ignore you, like friends may do. You learn this the hard way, who is there for you during times of need, and who simply cannot help you during a time of need, its not that they arent your real friends, its that they have lives of their own, they need to tend to, without wasting their time, energy, and emotions talking someone through their problems in life who cant get well on their own.
