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
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.
