8. Your parents are just people.
When we’re little, our parents are our best examples of what it’s like to be functioning adults. We think they have it all figured out, and as adults, we too, will always know what to say and do. It isn’t until we’re adults ourselves that we realize that if you don’t have the answers at 25 or 31 or 40, they likely didn’t either. And somewhere along the way, we realize we’re more equal than we think.
And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.—Matt 23:9
