10 Reasons To Tell Your Parents You Love Them Daily

10 Reasons Why You Should Always Tell Your Parents You Love Them

Through the good, the bad, the hopeless and the great, your parents will still love you.


Throughout our lives, most people forget where they came from. Life moves on so fast and we all get caught up in it at some point. But the one thing you should never forget to do is tell your parents you love them. A lot of times people forget how much they sacrifice just to get their child in the best position to be successful in life. Even if your relationship with your parents isn't great, its always best to let them know.

My parents mean the world to me, and here are 10 reasons why I always tell them I love them.

1. They constantly sacrifice everything for you.

They had a life once too ya know, but they will stop and drop everything just to help you out.

2. They love you more than anything in the world.

Whether it shows or not, they love you because you are a part of them.

3. They gave up their lives for you.

They had a life of their own before you came around, and now all they do is worry about their child. Most parents would drop everything for their child.

4. They have ALWAYS loved you.

Through the good and the bad, they were still there. Remember when you were a smart-ass prissy middle schooler? I know I remember. My parents may have disliked me in that moment, but they have always loved me.

5. They are the reason you're successful and give you everything they have.

All those mornings when they drug you out of bed and forced you to go to school, drove you to and from every day, made sure you did your homework, convinced you to apply to colleges, and paid for it the whole way. They did that for you.

6. They won't be around forever.

And when that day comes, it will be the worst one of your life. Make sure your parents know you love them, and hear it everyday because when that dreaded day come at least you know they knew.

7. They are the only people that will and have been in your life forever.

The only people who have been with you the longest, are your parents.

8. They loved you before you were even born.

They loved you first, and they love you the most. You parents loved you when you were just a little egg in the womb, and they never stopped.

9. You never know what exactly your parents are going through.

They could be having a really rough time in life and you may have no idea. Getting a phone call from their child just to tell them they love them, could really brighten them up more than you think.

10. You might just make their day, every day.

It may not be something they expect everyday, but it definitely something they'll appreciate everyday.

Long story short, call your parents!! They love you more than you know, and you should want to make their day. Our parents are all we have in the long run, and they will love you no matter what.

To The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

30 Things That Happen To The Kids Without Parents

Last-minute realizations, avoidable experiences, and questions you just shouldn't ask people


I could summarize this entire post in one simple sentence and call it a day. I could choose to deal with my own problems and ignore others' because they don't affect me. I could gloss over the subject and pretend none of it is real. But that wouldn't be fair, mature, or loving of myself or others.

So with that, I don't think there's anything truer I can say besides I know what it's like.

I had little to no interaction with my parents. I lived with my maternal aunt and grandmother and hadn't a clue why. The confusion probably hurt me more than knowing ever would've. Obviously, there are things you just don't tell children. You'll spoil their innocence. Or, they'll understand when they're older. But for kids without parents, it's almost impossible to get it through their heads not to mature so quickly (before it's socially "time"). It's like telling the sun not to rise tomorrow. You just can't.

But I digress. I give a snapshot of my hidden experiences here with the hopes that I help...comfort...give love to someone else. Just letting y'all out there know you're not alone.

1. My entire second grade class asked me where my dad was after I said he "was" something.

I was also the new kid in town at that time. Nice.

2. My third grade teacher excluded me from Mother's Day arts and crafts because she knew I didn't have a mom.

3. A boy in my class asked if I was a robot because I had no parents. Also Batman (how would that work???).

4. Another boy (same class) asked, "Is your dad dead?" in front of the whole class on Father's Day. 

5. When my mom wasn't my chaperone for the Mommy Daughter Dance, a girl noticed and told me I shouldn't have bothered coming.

6. I never saw their faces in the audience at any of my choral concerts growing up.

7. My junior high advisor mentioned it was abnormal that I wasn't living with my parents.

8. An ex-boyfriend told me it was no wonder I was so problematic.

(What with being an "orphan" and all. You know, the usual).

9. I graduated high school with no one in the bleachers cheering for me. 

10. I got looks for bringing my only picture of my parents and I to my graduation ceremony.

11. They didn't get to congratulate me on my first job.

Or the next. Or the next...

12. I never got to tell them I got accepted to my dream college.

13. My mom and I were supposed to get matching tattoos.

14. My parents will never know I left that toxic boyfriend they worried about.

15. I look at drugs, alcohol, and addictions from a completely different angle than other kids my age.

16. I grew up never knowing what true love was.

17. I never got to have "mother-daughter gossip."

18. I never had a male role model in my life.

19. My mom never got to meet my best friends. Just some good-for-nothing boy that broke my heart.

20. I grew up cold toward tragedy. Grieving is hard now. Things just seem to happen.

21. I see parents with their college students now and it never fails to break my heart.

22. I won't have my dad to walk me down the aisle.

23. I won't have my mom to do any girl bonding with.

24. The last image I have of them is the most haunting.

25. I rethink our last conversations all the time and speculate.

26. I see their auras in the world around me. Sometimes it's freaky.

27. I have dreams about them all the time.

Sometimes good. Sometimes bad.

28. I never get to tell them I love them, or hear their voices, or see their faces.

29. My parents will never be grandparents or in-laws.

30. I still have not completed my grieving process. Even after all these years.
