Feel free to listen to this Spotify Playlist while reading the letter:
Dear Mom and Dad,
I’ve read a few of these letters, so I could feel prepared to write this one to you. I’ve noticed that these letters tend to be full of apologies, which makes sense, of course. Us kids, we’re taught from birth to honor our father and mother. We’re taught to make you happy, no matter the cost. It’s so ingrained in us that we feel guilty when we let you down. We feel like failures when we can’t reach your expectations. We learn to base our worth on how those who brought us into this world look at us.
