I coukd go on but you get the Owl and rose shirt moreover I love this idea. I also don’t date much anymore because every man I dated would immediately start talking about moving in together, usually in the first month of being an item. They all want someone to take care of them and I already raised my kids. I don’t think I’ll ever marry again but I’m not opposed to something else long term. Some decades ago the husband was a breadwinner, who worked in a full-time job, and if i can say that the wife was a domestic slave, who wanted to the cosy of the house. As i see it nowdays the role of the mother and role of the father almost be in a same level. Husband also take part in household chores, doing the shopping, cooking and so on. After all parents have got full-time job, and the older children sometimes have to deal with their younger brother/sister. They are involved in housework. Broken families are those families where parents doesn’t live together or separated. Children live with one of the parent, or many a time there are looked after by one of the grand parent. In such family, children have bad childhood as they witness the separation, or lack of parents love together. Many a time children suffer inwardly and it shows in the later stage of their life. After personal therapy, I learned that the dysfunctional family usually unconsciously assigns roles and function to certain members; there’s the escape valve member, the angelic member, and the trouble maker, which can also be the black sheep member, but not necessarily. There are more positions, like the invisible member. After I stepped out of the dysfunctional family assemblage, my position was then filled by another member, a younger half sister. When she left, and the other kids left, eventually the problem was left to the parents who saw the same upset family, but the responsible parties finally had to face the music. I lay it out that way to let you know you can explain until the cows come home, “He did this, she did that, they did that,” used by your family to justify your evil, black sheep position. But, you need NOT go through all of that if you don’t want to.
To make it clear up front, this is not some humble brag where I list all my achievements and go fishing for compliments. I’ll appreciate that you left a comment telling me I’m great, thank you. I know I have done a lot with my life, I’m confident and content with myself. But I also know, I can’t be compared to my parents’ appearance, intellect, achievements, and fame. Both of my parents are entrepreneurs. They’re those selfish, horrible, and yet extremely charismatic people who make great TV protagonists. Write them out, and you’d love them. They’re strong-willed, fiercely independent, passionate about what they want to do, extremely capable, and willing to play dirty to get what they want. My dad graduated from a top university in China, my mom never went to college. My dad was an “anti-revolutionist” during the Owl and rose shirt moreover I love this Cultural Revolution and served 10 years in a labor camp. My mom was a red guard. Both of them built their own companies from scratch, and have achieved many “first in China” statuses. They have failed, and they have succeeded, they did great things before they were 40. And to top it all up, both of them are pretty and charming people, the kind of people who stand out naturally in the crowd, people you naturally feel attracted to. None of that passes down to me. And my parents and pretty much everyone who knew my parents and I made sure I knew it. Me? I was never the brightest kid in school, never felt like the smartest person in any room. I have an OK job. I love what I’m doing, but there’s nothing special about it. I have an OK apartment and an OK cat. From the look of it, everything is kind of “meh”. And now I’m in my late 30’s, I know I’ll never get where my parents are when they’re at my age. No working on a startup when startups weren’t even a thing, no traveling thousands of miles to a different city and living the life of a gypsy with a bunch of avant-garde artists… No starting my own clothing line with zero training still can’t believe my mom did that. Do you know why I understand Kylo Ren? Because some part of me feels for him. Some ugly ducklings never get to turn into swans, like their swan parents. They remain ugly and they just need to learn to live with that.
