relationship with my parents

This one should be interesting.

Describe your relationship with your parents:

To keep this simple, I’m just going to talk about my birth parents. So, let me start with my dad. He is the reason I figured out my passion at such a young age. He recognized it and wasn’t shy in telling me. Our relationship is something I’m super proud of. We can talk about almost anything, and he enjoys talking about the deep stuff just as much as I do. I think of him as my own personal “Elizabeth Gilbert”. He’s the smartest person I know and the best writer I know. I’m honestly so lucky to have him as a dad. A lot of the way we think is pretty similar. However, I think I’m definitely more vocal about things—which makes for interesting conversations. My dad deserves his own letter, and this isn’t the place for it…I love you dad. By the way, I say I hate it when you go into counselor mode with me, but I always listen completely and take it all into consideration.

Mother. Hello, mother. I love you more. You have always been here. You have saved me from terrible situations, but also made me believe I was strong enough to be in other situations. You deserve the whole world, and I hope I can give you a piece of it one day. I know I’m older now and seeing less of you—I’m seeing less of everyone—but that doesn’t change our relationship. You are still my first call when something is wrong or when something is good. I wish I could make you understand that. The way we communicate is the opposite as dad and I. We are BOTH vocal and never shy away from letting the other person hear what we have to say; that’s a good and bad thing. I’ve written you so many letters over the years, I don’t know what I could possibly say that you haven’t heard. I love you so much. I’m always here for you, no matter what. Mmmwaahhh.
