Realization of how much your childhood and the patterns you learned from affect your adult life. Families are the blueprints for how we build our lives. Mothers, fathers, grandparents and elders are the architects that shape us. I also, call out for men to love their children, be fathers, but do not be afraid to also be a friend.
