You Are What They Breed

I've known it long enough. I recognise that there is no escape either.

I preferred to deny it to myself, or at least, to hide it. (From myself).

Though I've now accepted it, I've only accepted it quietly.

But there is little point.

I am what made me. Some good bits, probably, but at the moment the worst bits too. Even more.

Those bits I despise about my father, well, they are too me. All the bad bits.

And the bad bits about my Mum (those tend to be health problems). I'm sure I have them in some shape way or form as well.

C'est la vie!

But the bad bits from your Dad- there is a difference! You recognize that they are bad, and you can work to change them- or at least control them!

And as for your Mum's health- I hear ya! I get that from both sides!

BTW- I've been meaning to ask: what does "ahoj" mean? I've never heard or seen that anywhere but your blog!

Hello, old friend (as in good, comfortable).

In advance, let me wish you a happy thanksgiving to come.

As for my Dad's bad bits. The issue is that... I enjoy. For all the reasons I don't like.

ahoj (I did post it here, or as a comment on yours).

It's czech.

Just like ciao. Hello. Bye. Ahoj. SHhp ahoj. Sailor ahoj. Ahoj.

Hmmm. Cryptic.

Probably best to focus on those good bits, though I know that's sometimes impossible.
