We all hope that we’ll make our parents proud and that they will rejoice in our successes. But there are some things we always keep a secret from them.
#1 We’re trying with all our energy to always look and behave like responsible, independent adults.
#2 Sometimes we really feel like retreating to our childhood.
#3 We’re embarrassed to watch romantic scenes in movies with them sitting beside us.
#4 We want them to be proud of us.
#5 It was us that broke that vase. Sorry, Mom!
#6 We knew long ago that there was no such thing as Santa Claus, but we liked playing along.
#7 We’re embarrassed to talk about what’s really important.
#8 Sometimes we hide something in order to avoid upsetting them.
#9 Those hats they made for us spent less than five minutes a day on our heads.
#10 Sometimes it’s hard for us to admit we were wrong.
#11 We really miss you, but we’re too embarrassed to say so.
