"We want to be indulged for our ambivalence about becoming better people" Hi what this sentence means? "We want to be indulged for our ambivalence about becoming better people" - here's the context: All of us improve only when we have not been badgered or made to feel guilty; only when we have a sense that we are loved and deeply understood for the many reasons why change is so hard for us. We know, of course, that the bins need our attention, that we should strive to get to bed earlier and that we have been a disappointment in the couple. But we can’t bear to hear these lessons in an unsympathetic tone; "we want – tricky children that we are – to be indulged for our ambivalence about becoming better people"

It is something like "we want people to focus on the fact that we are undecided if we would like to improve ourselves or not". Something like that. Or "we want people to enjoy us for our indecision to improve ourselves" Hope that helps!
