Dad

Most teenagers feel their parents are annoying and intimidating. Especially, when they get nagged or scolded by their parents. I too thought my dad was a very intimidating person back then.

To me, there was a period of time, which I don't really want to engage with my folks. We are not in the same universe, I felt.

Today, I see him in a whole different light. Somehow, my perception has changed.During the trip to Bilit yesterday,we talked a lot.

Below is one of the conversations we had :

Me : Dad, in 60 years of your life, you must have experienced the ups and downs in life. Can you tell me what should I do if I face hardships or failures in my life.

Dad : Move on.

Me : Huh ?

Dad : Yup, when we are facing the worst moment in life, the best way you can take, is to move on. The sooner the better. Don't waste time dwelling in the past but focus in moving forward to the next chapter.

Me : *astonished* Yeah, that's true.
