They don’t know

Yes, your parents know you better than anyone else, took care of you, love you dearly, and ‘want the best for you’. 

But the fact that they want the best doesn’t mean they know the best. And you can replace ‘parent’ with teacher, brother, mentor, investor, lover, wife, and supervisor. 

They don’t know who you really are. They can’t know, I promise you. No matter how many prophecies, prayers and potentials they may have projected on you.

No one knows the fullness of you, yet. Only you have the capacity to fully unveil and reveal who you are - by the life you decide to live.
