    HI Peter..wow.. and Thank you! That was an amazing and powerful reply..!! That really does shed a different perspective which I can genuinely appreciate..!! Thank you!! Your absolutely right bc passion is so unique to each individual and there really is no true measure. I guess it’s more of doing what feels good to you and what allows you to be happy, whatevwe that may be… that’s all is really boils down to. I suppose there isnt really a right or wrong answer…and I agree it is based on perspective. Sometimes you just need to hear something like this to be reminded…I just get stuck in my head so often that I have trouble seeing how fortunate I really am. I’m naturally an over thinker so I tend to create issues that dont even exist. Thank you for bringing me back to reality and reminding me how important gratitude is. Your right, I dont have to fit in with the crowd or look for acknowledgement of making a difference. I’m sure I am in some way, even if its minimal and even if that means I dont receive praise or recognition. I suppose that’s ego or pride..?? I have to remind myself to be content and thankful for ll that I am and have around me.

    Yes I remember her being unhappy most of the time. She suffered from multiple mental health issues and she didnt know how to manage her symptoms. As a child I thought that was normal, I didnt know any better. But as I grew up I realized that she was in a lot of emotional pain for most of life. Yes, of course I felt bad for her bc I k we she was suffering. I didnt know how to help her or show her that it was ok to be happy, I was clueless. I would try to spend alot of time with her just she knew someone was there who cared. I’m not really sure it made much of a difference since all I could do was provide a warm body. I couldnt help her talk thru any of her issues or sort out anything she was thinking. She did have her moments where she would talk about the dark thoughts in her head but all I could do was listen. She did have happy times as well, not all was dark and depressive but she didnt know how to make peace with her demons. I always felt responsible for her well being even into adulthood.

    Hi Anita,
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Thanks for the reply! To answer your questions, NO, my parents were not content with their lives and especially not each other. I would believe that as “parents” they were both content with having children, I am one of three. My parents always showed us love, my mom was the nurturer and my dad was the hard worker. They both worked full time jobs but my dad also worked a part time job at night and on the weekends so we never really spent much time with him. As far as making a difference in their lives, I’m not really sure how to answer that? I would have to say my mom really enjoyed being a mom but my dad was always working so I’m not sure what his view was.</p>
