Me and my dad have had a rough relationship, with him mostly just doing him, and me just being the same old me. It has been difficult opening up to him because he holds this illusion of the perfect son, which as is the case with most of our parent’s expectations, can never be met. I have spent my entire life avoiding revealing my true personality to him, because end of the day I am human, and humans are flawed.
Being far away from society, all the way out here in the mountains and in all natural environment, I decided that I could no longer handle being fake, and revealed a little bit of myself to him – my drinking side. Not being a regular drinker like him, and having complete control over the substance, I felt no reason to hide it from him. But, big surprise, he wasn’t okay with it. He refused to accept his human son for what what he is.
I don’t want to get into any further details, but the point that I am trying to make is that it is impossible to meet all of our parent’s expectations without compromising our own principles and personalities. But at the end of the day, like Lil Wayne says, ‘If you ain’t doing you, you ain’t doing nothing’.
A man’s size is not measured by the size of his physique, or his ego, but by the size of his temper. Don’t give into your anger and ego, and lash back. Be the bigger man or women, and give others time to realize that they are at fault. Arguing and fighting never end with both sides winning, and will always end with one or both parties having their pride damaged.
Don’t be afraid to go out there and be yourselves, and don’t hold yourself back for anybody else. When you guys have a dream, you have to protect that dream. Don’t let anybody stop you from chasing them, and from being yourselves.
If your family or friends don’t want to accept you for who you are, it really doesn’t matter. Be the best that you can be, and answer only to the person in the mirror. If you don’t have haters, you are doing something wrong.
Everybody on this planet has a dream, but not too many of them agree with each other. There are also a lot of people that become jealous by watching you being happy and making your dreams a reality unlike them, and there will always be parents that have expectations that simply cant be met.
Keep doing what you KNOW is right, and you will attract the right people, with similar goals and aspirations. This will result in real relationships, which simply cannot be made if you are not a genuine person, and are putting up a face. That is a fact, which I picked up directly from my psychology textbook.
One of my favorite quotes of all time is from the movie Coach Carter, which is borrowed from Marianne Williamson’s book. ‘Our biggest fear is not that we are inadequate, it is that we are powerful beyond measure. You aren’t doing the world any favors by shrinking to allow others to feel better about themselves. By allowing your own light to shine, you will automatically give others permission to do the same, and liberate them from their own darkness. We ask ourselves, who are we to be beautiful, powerful, and successful? Who are you not to be’
Don’t settle for mediocrity. Shoot for the stars and show the world that you can go to the moon. The only person truly standing in your way, is you. You guys were all born special, so don’t allow anybody hold you back.
On that note, I conclude this article. End of the day, your dreams are you own, and it is solely your responsibility to make them a reality. Don’t let anybody tell you that you aren’t special. As Eminem says -
‘Don’t let em say you aint beautiful, they can all get f*****d, just stay true to you. God gave you the shoes that fit you, so put them on and wear them. Be yourself man, be proud of who you are’
(Beautiful – Eminem)
