Probably most of us would agree that parents want their children to do better in life compared to what they have achieved. It is sad though, that most of them forbid different behavior than they are used to and as a result - raise children with a mindset that their individuality is wrong. When having a strict upbringing, it is hard not to aim for proving your point to the elder, but forgiving their ways of expressing love and care and letting go is the path to free up headspace for further development

Most parents are limited to their knowledge, and over power children, without letting them to explore what the little ones passion. Parents do teach their children but as a kid would not knowing till bad things really happened to them. As they not experience and understand. Life is short, worst still if communication breakdown is not solve within this life, hence becomes a broken family. But depending on the path that the child takes, he or she might be successful if they wishes to become.

Why do we feel lonely sometimes, even if we have everything we would desire in the world? Maybe “The little prince” can bring some insight to that. In the book the little prince realizes that, even though there are many roses, his love for his rose makes her unique and that he is therefore responsible for her. And being away from her - makes him feel lonely. We are also responsible for loving ourselves and only when we appreciate our “rose” and not distance ourselves from who we truly are, we finally feel fulfillment. .

Its one thing to know something cognitively, it's another thing to understand it emotionally. I see often people expect that because they inform you of something, something you can recognise as true, that you will understand it on a deeper level too. Understanding an insight by learning it yourself compared to being explained it by someone else feel very different and register at different levels. I can be told 'its good to accept yourself' but if my lived experience has taught me that accepting myself is dangerous and will jepradise the key relationships in my life, then it's hard to over ride that. Its not enough to be told something is true, you have to explore your own beliefs and where they've come from, in order to realise it for yourself.

So true! If you have grown in an environment that does not reward empathy, it would just be pointless to say "you need more empathy" as the concept would be meaningless without shifting core beliefs.
