Feeling Morally Responsible

Some people do their parenting in difficult circumstances, and nothing that is done by them as parents is fully under their control.

The good and bad traits that parents possess can find their way in the child, with them having no say as to what the child will eventually become or do.

The Inner Paradox

Due to so many factors at play, parents are relying on good luck, pulling off a gamble on the child that is being raised. They don't have much leverage on the outcome, the net result of the actions of their offspring.

There is an inner paradox, a duality that exists in the minds of parents, which can make them accept and also reject the responsibility they have towards their kids' actions.

Beyoncé

When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”

6 Life Lessons From Beyoncé

  2. Take care of your mind and body and don’t feel selfish for doing so.
  3. Beauty comes from within, don’t focus on the aesthetic.
  4. Be self-reliant and don’t let other people’s opinions take you off course. You are the only one responsible and capable of taking care of yourself as you need.
  5. Accept that failure is a possibility and let that push you harder to succeed.
  6. Don’t give in to the expectations of others, never settle and set your own timeframes to achieve satisfaction.
