I don’t remember my teenage years. Thinking back to that time, I know there are things I took for granted. I wanted to grow up and be an adult and do adult things. I was in a hurry. I thought being an adult was cool and that they had an easy life. Now I know better.
From this comes my advice to you said with the utmost love.
I’m as confused as you are. You are now your own person and your needs are unique and I’ve learnt to adapt to you as you’ve grown up. I hope you can learn to adapt to me as you are morphing into an adult. Even though I scold you and sometimes we swap nasty words but everything I say and do is out of love for you and a whole lot of frustration. Frustration because I don’t know what else to do. I ask you to please be patient with me, I’m doing the best that I know how, from what I’ve learnt from my life. It’s the best advice I can ever give you.
