Mother And Son Get Emotional Talking About His Father’s Death (Video)
When you’re a kid, you don’t really understand your parents as other people. As a kid, your parentsare larger than life, only existing in your view.
But, as you grow older, you can relate to their struggles more and more. As you age, you can start to see your mother and fathermore as your peers, and less as your elders.
Martha and Benji, a mother and son duo, illustrate this point perfectly in a new segment for The Skin Deep project,a publishing collective focused on exploring human connection and intimacy in the digital age.
Benji, 23, and mother Martha sit down for a chat about their troubling past, how death has affected their family, what it’s like to be a parent and what it’s like to be a kid.
The video serves asa good reminder that you may not know your parents as well as you think you do.
Perhaps, it will even inspire you tobe more inquisitivein an effort toget to know them better. They are, after all, the people who know youbest.
