We’re all in this together, so help each other out. If we can’t help each other out, then we don’t need to be together.
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with a degenerative disease. My parents had me on a wheelchair and they lived about a mile from my hospital. I remember that every day, they would come in at 9:30 in the morning and help me take my medicine. It was a lot like doing parental visits. They were there for me, in my room and while I was in the hospital.
We were all in this together, so help each other out. If we cant help each other out, then we dont need to be together.
But I’m sure that those words were not uttered in jest. It’s easy to forget that our parents are very important to us. They are the people who make the decisions for us, who are our parents. They are the ones that make the rules that we follow and who we love. They are the ones that make us feel like we belong, that we’re important. And for that, they are the ones that we can count on.
We all know that our parents are our role models. They are the people that we look up to or emulate. The people that we know we are our own. But what about those words, “Take care of your parents?” I know that sounds a little strange, but it’s true. When we were kids, our parents would often say things like “Take care of your parents,” “Take care of your brothers and sisters” and “Take care of yourself.
When you lose your mom, your dad or brother or sister, it can be hard to get your head around what you’re going through and how you’re going to look after your parents and siblings. If your life can be changed (or if you’re not even going through the motions), then you have to take the time to find a change in your life. This is what we did for our parents because they made it their life’s biggest motivator.
We took it upon ourselves to do something about our parents that they would never have done for themselves. It was a long process, but we had to do it for them. We changed our lives for them.
The time we spent with them was what really made us believe that anything was possible. And to this day you can come home from a trip or even a day at work and be surprised to find them still waiting for you, so the work is worth it. It took a lot of work and sacrifice, but it was worth it.
A lot of times I think of it as a moment of joy. I like that because it’s something I’m proud of. And it is something I’ve never been able to accomplish.
The main focus now is to help others understand the difference between what they know about a place, person, or situation in life. A lot of times it’s easier to help someone learn something new by helping them understand it. It feels great to use an old story to help them understand things that they already know. But sometimes you just have to start talking about it.
