Last But not Least -Psychology of Self Development and Parents Involvement

In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank?

I would thank to myself for coming out as a champion, for taking the extra miles other’s didn’t, and most of all for the dedication I put in the project. Really, our life is our own responsibilities apart from the circumstances we are in, the people around us, and the adversities we faced. It all ends to ourselves for striving to be better each day, by taking small steps ahead daily eventually we’ll arrive at the destination.

Our parents are the one who brought us into the world with the condition they were in at that time, they take care and nurture us to be who we are now. Despite the involvement of environmental factors, many believes that family is the backbone of our believes and values in life. To parents, you do influence your children future, teach them good-positive values to live for.

Parents are not perfect either, they made mistakes, they got pissed at us, hell they even shout at us sometimes. But it doesn’t prove that they hate us, they do love us but sometimes they are too weak to control themselves, the way we are too weak to control ours. Assuming our parents have done their best (think of the cost of your living since birth and the time and wnergy investment they had in raising us), now it all depends on us and us alone to live our life each day, striving to be better.
