I honestly don’t believe you owe your parents a damn thing for raising you. That’s their job. They (whether planned or not) conceived a child, and now have the responsibility of providing for your basic needs, with a minimum expectation of guidance, support and affection. However, even if you’re not given all of the above, there is one thing they don’t deserve: to bury you.
That’s all I’m asking. Make decisions that result in you burying your parents, no matter your age. Funerals for the young have peppered my life lately, and I find myself more often than not taking on the perspective of their parents; how do you go on? I don’t know, and I hope I never do. But I do know that I’ll do the best in my power to make sure my own parents never find out. I owe them that.
