I honestly don’t know how my parents are the way they are.
I think that part of it is due to the fact they are forty years older than me and grew up in a time where whining or complaining about things is simply not the case.
My father worked as a certified HVAC repair tech for over forty years before calling it a career and my mother spent her life working tirelessly to raise me and my three crazy brothers. When I was growing up as a kid I thought that I would be the type of kid who would be able to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a certified HVAC repair tech, but as I started to get a bit older I realized that it just was not the case in my adult working career. All three of my brothers ended up getting into their own HVAC career fields, however I turned out to be the type of person who preferred to work less with my hands and more with my brain. Despite how I thought my parents would be disappointed in me for not following in the footsteps of my father like all of my brothers did they have actually been so kind to me about it. As long as they are proud of me and as long as I am still making enough money to hire people like my brothers to take care of problems I have in my home like my air conditioning unit breaking down on me then I guess I have nothing to complain about.
