IC Adalia Tehanis Fireside Sitting backwards on her chair, her fingers laced along the back of the chair, he chin resting on them as she pondered Master Anantas words There is a part of me which understands the Older Padawans feelings, it's very much like when you have two children who are chalk and cheese. You might have one who is an over achiever, who has aimed for the stars from the time they took their first steps at say 9 months of age. Then you have a child who didn't even want to take steps till 18 months old and since hasn't strived for much in the world other than to exist and just be. You spend your life in Awe of the achieving child but after time that child doesn't notice your wonderment at them, as its 'the norm'. Then when the other child does something, anything......the parent suddenly is in awe of this child and often over the top reactions appear as this child has done something out of the ordinary. The achieving child suddenly sees this and thinks 'they never reacted to me like that' when the truth is the parents have been amazed by them all along. There is no time limit on redemption, Vader is the proof of that. There is a reason why people say 'I've seen the light', cause they literally have. OOC This is my family right now so this is very close to home, daughter has been an over achiever all her life, still is. Son is not motivated to get out of bed, so when he does do something we react and then his sister is all 'you don't love me as much as him.' Gotta tell you all, this parenting Gig can really suck.
