it’s pretty crazy that it takes so long to realize exactly what it was parents were talking about.
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
