Parents  
There is a point in your adult life when you realize that your parents won't always be there. It probably happens earlier for other people. For me, I think it sunk in when I lost my significant other's father, unexpectedly.

I can't remember when I started reading this woman's blog and I am not sure I can explain why I do (I don't have kids, I don't know her, I don't even know her once removed, and she's not famous in any way). But I read it regularly, and she just finished posting a four-part series that made me cry.

What happens when your parents are no longer there even though you need them?

You carry on. You look elsewhere for help. You think of what they would do or say and take it into account when acting. You think about how they help you without even being there. You realize what it was about them that influences what makes you you and let that good feedback build.
