When a child wants something, it wants something.
Then when the parent tells the child that “you can’t always get what you want,” I feel like the parent is only superimposing themselves and their own harsh realities onto their child.
WHO says the child can’t always get what they want.
More so, who says YOU can’t always get what YOU want?
Parents shouldn’t repeat that just because they’ve been told that line since they were a child.
Like Allan Watts said, they’re only raising children so that they might find satisfaction when they see their child repeating the same patterns they (the parents) did.
Whether consciously or subconsciously, the parents think they know better.
Parents DON’T always know better.
Long ago before we had data and science, our primitive ancestors trusted their gut because that was all they had.
Which is why I urge you to follow your gut.
You are responsible for your own future.
To quote Rocky, “If you know what you’re worth then go out there and get what you’re worth!”
