Why my parents are the most important people in my life
This past weekend, I was blessed enough to be able to go to Las Vegas and experience the city that never sleeps. But I didn’t just “go” to Las Vegas, I got to experience Las Vegas like I was a freaking king. I’m talking VIP access to the eSports Arena, the best buffet, and a $600 a night hotel room at the Paris hotel. This was all thanks to the two most important people in my life, my parents. Now most 24 year olds would go to Vegas with a bachelor party, or with their girlfriend who would accidentally become their wife. But for me, I couldn’t have asked for two better people to go with.
My parents and I are very close. We always have been and we always will be. Being the youngest child by seven years, I basically grew up an “only child” while my sisters were attending college. Yep, even my sisters call me favorite. I suppose if I am given a nickname, I might as well want one that describes me. But in all seriousness, I have no idea how I was blessed enough to get the best parents in the entire world.
As I have matured, I have really been able to understand how truly amazing my parents are. It is not just because they bend over backwards to cater to my needs, but because they love me no matter how much of a little shit I can be. There are many times that I do not say thank you, or many times that I do not recognize their hard work to ensure that I have the best life possible. After all of my ungratefulness, I am still treated like a king. And this past weekend was no acception.
Just to give you an idea of what my parents are like, we did everything that I wanted to do. It was supposed to be a vacation for all of us, but it was really for me. I say this with the least amount of selfishness that I possibly can. It wasn’t that I threw a fit when my parents wanted to do something, they just kept asking me what I wanted to do. When I said that I didn’t care and told them to decide, they would say no because it was my vacation.
This is how my parents are. They are constantly going out of their way to help me, my friends, and strangers that they have never met before. We traveled via Lyft all over Vegas this past weekend. If a ride was $10, my parents would tip an additional $10. As a family, we are incredibly blessed. Instead of holding onto their money like I do, they bless others so that everyone can live a happier life.
No matter what I do in my life, I will never be able to repay my parents. They aren’t just my parents, they are also my best friends and ultimately my heroes. Through all of the thick and thin, and ups and downs, they have never given up on me. They have never told me that I wasn’t good enough, but rather helped me to be better. Most importantly, they have never stopped loving me. If you have parents like mine, then you would understand why they are the most important people in my life.
