    2. I consult one of my cowards ( good sentence but what do you mean by "cowards" it sounds a bit rude..) Sometimes I consult others without payment. It's a win-win game because I can try my consultant skills and others could get a free consultant. As many authors and books are say, my consult’s main idea is about money and getting wealth. First, I divide consultee’s life into 5years. Every five years I name them as society’s common senses. For example, until 20, you cannot live without your parent’s assistance because before 20 being a good son or good daughter is the best investment to survive. You can do what you want and can keep getting support even if you do useless things. Second, between 20 to 25, you can go to Uni or not. If you go to Uni or college you must spend more than 2 to 4 years of your twenties and more than 40 thousand dollars. And then you can get a college diploma that more than 80% of the twenties have. I ask consultee to choose. I also give those statistics. In Korea, the average payment of the twenties is under $1100 in a month (in 2017) and only 40% of graduates get jobs before thirty. More than 2millions of the twenties and thirties are trying to become government officials. More than 4millions of the twenties and thirties are trying to find a job. Third, between 25 to 30 it is the Maginot-line to get a job and become average people. NO matter how genius you are, well-educated you are, or if you have a great ability... When one gets older than thirty, only less than 10% of them can get a job. After all these processes most of the consultees don’t want to talk more, or they just repeat their useless life plan. If they like I broke their plans, dreams, and fantasies. I keep telling them their life wouldn't be that easy. I did it to myself many times. So now I’m trying to become a better person. That’s why I’m doing many things and learning many things.

    2. I have no doubt that my parents love me. I also know that my parents are old and so they cannot show their love to me 120%. Sometimes they could be seen as cynical, tired and exhausted. When I was a kid, I thought parents must love their children, so when they didn't show me love with enthusiasm, I felt upset. When I was a teenager, I thought some parents could not love their children so some of them would raise their children just with the responsibility. However, now I can understand that (grown-ups are not that energetic/they don’t have enough energy. – either one is fine, but both is redundant) Giving love takes a lot of energy and time, even emotions. Most of them love their children, but are just tired of earning money, keeping useless relationships to achieve something or keeping exhausting relationships just to live. They are exhausted, out of hormones. Their body hurts. They can’t always show their love for their children. Nowadays I can understand my parents and other parents and why they acted like that. Why they looked like they didn't like their kids. ("Lately, I can understand my parents." – I would remove this sentence because it's repetitive) One more thing is that they were too young. These days, marriage-age is becoming later and later. Having your first baby after 40 or 50 isn’t that rare. But when my parents were married, they had their first baby in their twenties. Yes, when they were my age. They gave birth to a baby, which is cute, lovely, and adorable, but also a crying, selfish, poor machine. They could get a job more easily, but they needed to start work in their early twenties or even at 19. These days (even college students are called ‘college-kids’/people call college students kids. – either one is fine but both is redundant) So actually, those kids are taking care of kids and babies. This is the biggest reason why when we were kids, we thought that our parents didn't like us. They screamed, fought each other or even cried in front of their children. They were just too young and exhausted, and didn’t know how to take care of themselves well. They were all adults but not all grown-ups. This is really good and insightful!!
