B: You just have to breathe honey
B: She's going to be back
B: And the sooner you just keep doing each day, the faster they will go by
B: And then it'll be time to see her again

One of the most empowering and awe inspiring moments I recall from my childhood was a day when I was 8 or 9 and it dawned on me fully that my parents were people and individuals just like me, and they had a relationship with each other that predated me and wasn’t about me, even though it was the relationship that led to me and my sister being here. This meant I, too, as a kid, was empowered to have a life of my own that wasn’t about my parents, or anybody else. As I went through my teens and so on, this realization developed into a clear understanding that the world doesn’t revolve around me, even though I’m absolutely within my rights to be self actualized and want what I want and go after it, etc.
