Whether you love or hate your parents, they are always there for you. You are usually stuck with the parents you are given, for better or worse. I'm not going to suggest that every parent deserves to be loved and praised because that is just not the case. Most parents, on the other hand, who deserve to be praised, aren't. Why? Because the vast majority of individuals aren't particularly intelligent or respectful to others.
If you have parents you adore, do yourself a favor and tell them how much they mean to you. Do you require a justification? Here are nine of them:
1. The first step in healing any relationship is to express your love for them.
It shouldn't be hard to tell your parents how much they mean to you, how grateful you are to have them in your life, and how much you love them. Nonetheless, it frequently proves to be the case. Few parents raise their children in circumstances that include these three terms. If they are important to you, let them know. It can help you mend your connections in a big way.
2. Not all parents are good parents, but keep in mind that the majority of parents don't even try.
If you were one of the fortunate few to be born into a household where your parents tried their hardest to provide a wonderful life for you, you should adore them just for that. The majority of children are not born into a loving household with parents who are concerned about their well-being. The majority of parents are terrible guardians and teachers. The majority of these are negative influences. Even if your parents are good people, they need to be recognized.
3. You shouldn't assume that they know you love them, and even if they do, a gentle reminder never hurts.
Parents have a stronger bond with their children than youngsters have with their parents. It's most likely because they're older, wiser, and have a deeper understanding of love. When you love someone as much as a parent, you want them to love you back. Although action is always preferable to words, everyone – and I mean everyone – enjoys hearing the words as well. When you love your child as much as you love yourself, you start to wonder if your child loves you. Assuage your parents' fears by assuring them that you do.
4. You may never get another opportunity to tell your parents because they won't be around forever.
In the blink of an eye, people arrive and go. One day, you'll wake up to find that half of the people you know have vanished. Half of the people you love and care about will have passed away. You never know when someone will pass away; don't take the chance of never telling your parents how much they mean to you. They'll be gone one day. Otherwise, you'll be gone. Whatever the case may be, you don't want to miss out on the chance to make someone feel loved, because that's all that matters in the end.
5. The majority of the people in your life are acquaintances at best.
The majority of people will have little or no meaning for you. If you are fortunate enough to have people in your life whom you adore, you should tell them. I'm sure you can count on your toes and fingers all the people you truly care about – it's not a large number. It shouldn't be difficult to love and care for such a small set of people. When it comes to your parents, there are only two of them. Two people who, more than likely, deserve at least a little of your affection.
6. It's good for you to tell your parents you love them.
It's wonderful for your parents, but it's also excellent for your soul.
Most individuals, I believe, avoid telling others they love them because it makes them uncomfortable. Perhaps it's a fear of being rejected. Perhaps it's a feeling of humiliation. Whatever the case may be, thinking in this manner is simply absurd.
Grow up and either love completely or not at all.
7. If you can't really tell your parents you love them, there's a good chance you won't be able to raise children who can. If you can't even tell your parents you love them now, you'll have a hard time telling your kids - if only because you're not used to that kind of relationship. It may not seem important right now, but trust me when I say that a parent needs to hear those words every now and then. You'll feel the same way when you have your own children.
8. You never know the difficulty your parent(s) is/are going through.
If you don't tell each other how much you love one other, chances are your relationship isn't very good. Because we see our parents differently than the rest of the people in our lives, it's easy to forget that they are humans just like us – and that they may be struggling to smile. They could be having problems at work, with friends, or with their husband or wife. Children typically do not regard their parents as humans, but rather as super-individuals who do not have to cope with the same issues that we have. That is simply not the case.
9. If there's no good reason not to tell them you love them, there isn't one.
We're always on the lookout for an excuse to tell folks how much they mean to us. We save special events for them. We are waiting for a compelling excuse to pronounce those three words.
But why is that? Why is it necessary to have a reason to tell someone you love them? Isn't love enough of a reason?
