To make it clear up front, this is not some humble brag where I list all my achievements and go fishing for compliments. I’ll appreciate that you left a comment telling me I’m great, thank you. I know I have done a lot with my life, I’m confident and content with myself. But I also know, I can’t be compared to my parents’ appearance, intellect, achievements, and fame. Both of my parents are entrepreneurs. They’re those selfish, horrible, and yet extremely charismatic people who make great TV protagonists. Write them out, and you’d love them. They’re strong-willed, fiercely independent, passionate about what they want to do, extremely capable, and willing to play dirty to get what they want. My dad graduated from a top university in China, my mom never went to college. My dad was an “anti-revolutionist” during the Notorious RBG Ruth Bader Ginsburg love shirt But I will love this Cultural Revolution and served 10 years in a labor camp. My mom was a red guard. Both of them built their own companies from scratch, and have achieved many “first in China” statuses. They have failed, and they have succeeded, they did great things before they were 40. And to top it all up, both of them are pretty and charming people, the kind of people who stand out naturally in the crowd, people you naturally feel attracted to. None of that passes down to me. And my parents and pretty much everyone who knew my parents and I made sure I knew it. Me? I was never the brightest kid in school, never felt like the smartest person in any room. I have an OK job. I love what I’m doing, but there’s nothing special about it. I have an OK apartment and an OK cat. From the look of it, everything is kind of “meh”. And now I’m in my late 30’s, I know I’ll never get where my parents are when they’re at my age. No working on a startup when startups weren’t even a thing, no traveling thousands of miles to a different city and living the life of a gypsy with a bunch of avant-garde artists… No starting my own clothing line with zero training still can’t believe my mom did that. Do you know why I understand Kylo Ren? Because some part of me feels for him. Some ugly ducklings never get to turn into swans, like their swan parents. They remain ugly and they just need to learn to live with that.
