Our parents are the people we disagree with the most.
We have differing opinions on the smallest life issues to making big life decisions.
And that’s okay. And a different thing.
Right now, our parents need a different thing from us: Our presence.
When they were our age, they witnessed tremendous hard work, lack of opportunities, and struggle to make ends meet. Right now, they are witnessing death of those around and younger than them.
Life hasn’t been easy for them. But we can make it a bit easy, by being there for them – making them talk about their favourite topics (our childhood, their childhood), listening to them, or simply engaging with them.
Strange that people we love the most and vice versa need only love from us when they see love around them crumbling down in all ways.
