I saw an article posted in a group I follow and it was about the unattainable pathway of living up to these high expectations of our parents. I immediately thought of everything that is arising around me and wanted to add my two cents so I did. Here is what came to me:
Hey guys what about living a created life? one where you are at the source of everything working in your life; all areas of your life; your relationships; your experience of freedom; full self expression and power.
When things don’t work they are a clue and a hint and what it will take is for you to take 100% responsibility not as blame or shame or fault but as empowering you to say to yourself I’ve got this. I’ll be the one to create change in this area of my life that’s not working for ME.
When I realised for myself and found my own path and found my own purpose, nothing would or could get in its way.
However, I have empathy for this person and this article, it’s not ok but the mum is projecting her own insecurities of herself to creating inaccessible expectations of her children.
Simon Sinek says of being a leader that the leader is only responsible for the people who are responsible for the job.
Translating this to parenting then - the parent is only responsible for the child who is responsible for the pathways they choose in life.
The parent gives the child the opportunity to find themselves and once they do the parent gets out of the way xxxxx
Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
