Do you give up part of who you are?
Life’s not about you anymore, it’s about them.
It’s your duty to give show them the right life path.
It’s not about shielding them from the darkness of life...
That’s what my parents did for me.
I haven’t always made the right decisions, but I have given my best in all that I do...
You see, he had to drop out of HS to run his families restaurant because his dad was sick.
He never got the chance to go to college...
I remember taking a picture with him and he put his arm around my shoulder.
After the pic was snapped I moved to walk away, but he wouldn’t let me go.
He pulled my closer to him...
He just held me and after a few seconds he let me go.
I didn’t think much of it at the time.
It took me until after I had my first child to understand.
You see, every guy he grew up with became a gangster...
After my dad passed away my one of his friends told me that all he used to say...
“My sons a doctor. Look what all out friends sons became. I’m a lucky man.”
Na, he wasn’t the lucky one. I was. For showing me the right path.
It sucks sometimes and puts a restriction on your life for a little while.
Remember, every action and word helps shape your child’s destiny.
Do your best to show them the right path.
