I have always heard parents do a lot for their child unconditionally and these so-called lot of things need to be appreciated and valued. Then my question is, ‘Isn’t it a big condition itself that you require appreciation in return for all the things you did?’
Let’s just agree to the point that appreciation in return isn’t a big thing. But I again raise a question ‘What you actually did unconditionally?’
Today I am a mother and I wish I can stand on my thought till my entire life that I never put my child in any obligation that I did this much for you and you don’t give anything in return. It’s actually not just to the child.
When we plan a child, we do it for our need. Throughout pregnancy, a mother carrying a child is given so much respect and carrying a child for 9 months or taking labour and all other pain in delivery was not the decision a child wanted you to take. That’s simply your desire to be a parent and start your own family, then how can we show off to our child that we did a great job for them.
In reality, we do what we want in life. That’s human nature. Whatever actions we take is directly or indirectly for our own sake. Not at all for others and that’s the naked truth which can not accept.
I wish I never let my child feel that I have ever done anything big for him and he needs to feel obliged to me that. I wish I never do that. Infact I am so lucky to have Vaahin in my life as he teaches me everyday how beautiful my life is. I know it very easy to say anything but I will surely try to stand firm on my thoughts.
