I am not a parent but I know for certain that my parents have always put me first. There was never a day where I thought “I have bad parents” because they always worked hard to give me the best life that they could. When I read this quote, I thought about the many times my mom was worried about me for forgetting to call. I never understood why other than saying she was “a psycho” and the only answer I was given was “when you’re a mother, you’ll understand” but with 27 years behind me now, I understand. I don’t know if I’ll ever have children but I am forever built to love another unconditionally and with all that I am just by the love I have been given by both my mother and my father. xx
Very very true post….No one can understand our parents feelings, their efforts unless and until they become parents. No doubt this is one of the best post from you….

it’s pretty crazy that it takes so long to realize exactly what it was parents were talking about.
Well said. My son is 25 years old and not until he has his own kids he will not have that “aha” moment when he realizes that the love I gave him outweighed the tough love.
Amazing how someone 27 years young can confidently say “I am built to love another unconditionally.” As a parent of two young 30-somethings I know your parents will be proud. Well done 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂
