father or child?

Thought from my spiritual director that I’ve been pondering: “Before you were ever a father you were a child”. The difference for me being defining myself at the height of my competency (to some extent) vs. defining myself by the height of my vulnerability (to some extent). Can I only be the person who gives, creates, builds, loves, and does or can I be the person who receives, is molded, is created, is loved or just is?
