My parents gave me freedom.
My parents trusted me.
My parents instilled values in me.
My parents taught me right from wrong.
They believed I had sense and had my head on straight.
They trusted I wouldn’t do anything stupid and reckless.
They trusted I was mature and responsible enough to handle it.
Was it warranted? I believe so.
Did I cross the line? Yes.
I also learned. And I’m better for it.
I want to be trusted and respected like my parents trusted and respected me.
