What do you think love is? Why parents work hard every day if it is not for their children? They work from morning until evening because they want to get money for fulfilling their children’s needs. But do you think their children thought that they were loved? I don’t think so. So many cases about children from a wealthy family become naughty because they don’t feel that they are loved. Their parents are too busy with their work so they have no time to take care their children. As the consequence, their children think that their parents don’t love them.
It is a contradiction, isn’t it? if you asked the parents they would answer you that they love their children so much so they were willing to work hard to get their children a happy life. But, is it a happy life that their children want?
You see, love can be wrong. I mean it isn’t actually wrong, but what do you think it is a love, it could be not a love according to others. Why it happen? Because love can be describe as many things so that we have five love languages. It can be expressed as a thing, time, service, touch and word. In our former case, the parents show their love as service and thing. They work for getting money so they can buy gift for their children. But the children hope to get love from their parents as time. They want their parents teach them when they have difficult homework, watch them when they have a show in the school and read them a bedtime story.
Well, I have not become a parent yet, so I can’t describe the point of view of the parents, but as a child it is that I want. Maybe you are wonder why do I write about it. I just want to show that love is unique. We can’t judge the love that someone has according to our definition of love. Instead, broaden our understanding of love so that we can see the love that others show us.
