if you were unrelated to your parents and they were your age, would they be friends with you?
I doubt our paths would ever cross.
I wouldn’t be friends with my mother, but I would with my dad.
My mother was one of my very best friends.
For sure, my dad in particular. I’ve actually wondered what it would be like to have him as a peer while he was younger, but ultimately I think I need him most as he is.
