These people are me

with 8 comments

Here is my contribution to Tara’s Sticky Fingers Gallery: Me.

Why are these people me?

They are my mum and dad – so I am 50 per cent one and 50- per cent the other (actually, it fluctuates depending on my mood. Today, I’m 60 per cent mum).

They have made me who I am today and have given me the confidence to be who I want to be.

They have backed me and helped me. They have have given me advice when I have asked for it – and when I don’t need it, want it or even want to hear it (but that’s parents for you). They have been my rock in bad times and my sounding board when I have ideas and not sure who I can trust with them. I have laughed with them and cried with them.

I am them. They are me.

  2. Thanks, Tara. I really wanted to contribute to your gallery as it was a fab idea – but I hate having my pic taken. I decided this was the ideal way to do it!

  5. That was a sweet read. We only understand when we become parents ourselves.

  6. thank you for your comments. You are absolutely right, Ju. Becoming a parent does slot it all into place.

  7. You know, not that many people feel proud to be 50% of each of their parent’s, which is kinda sad. Its fab that you’ve acknowledged them as defining who you are.
