Friend, it is time to let go of the things that are holding you back from your life. Not leave them, but you must use them to propel you forward to your hopes and dreams. Your battle is not physical as much as mental by worrying about disappointing those around you. You can’t dream and take risks in love and life without letting go of trying to please and appease everyone about you. Respect is a two way street and you will have to earn their respect by taking charge of your life instead of relying on “what may or may not happen” on autopilot. Write down the things you want to accomplish, Devise a plan to get there, be prepared for the journey of a thousand steps. You can only take one step at a time and you may have to take a few steps back and adjust your plan to get to the life you want. Review your plan daily, be mindful throughout your day of your short and long term aspirations. You can still honor your parents and live your life, but you must prove to yourself that you can before they see it as well. Think of it from there perspective as well. You are their son and they do not want to see you fail and struggle as they possibly did growing up. If you are able, get your own place that you can afford and establish your independence in a respectful and loving way. Your parents will have an adjustment period and will honor you with their respect. Take on more responsibilities at your family’s business. Give your Father some time to see that you are capable of taking the reins in his absence. I pray and wish you well in your journey.
