So, I just got off an hour long phone conversation with my mom. Who by the way is a remarkable individual full of grit and determination! I won’t go into details but here is my take away based on the conversation.
Each parent is responsible for the choices they make for their children, good or bad. However, after a certain point when you as the child realize the good ones and especially the bad ones they made for you it becomes your responsibility to advance or correct them.
Not doing anything about it or still blaming them is still a choice you make. Either way you are still responsible for how you move forward in life.
So, if you are still blaming your parents for your inability to achieve greatness, success, impact, friendships, relationships, etc., you are now to blame.
At some point in time you have to let it go.
