This, son, is freedom…

Dear son, we’ve talked about all too common approval addiction in society and how the parental focus for us has been on you finding your worth in what you have accomplished, not in what someone else is pleased with.

It is in our self awareness that the approval from others is no longer necessary, nor even desired.

This, son, is freedom.

And joy.

Happiest of days.
