Can You Feel Their Hardship?

Parents’ Hardship

Parents sacrifice so much for their children. They sacrifice their sleep and freedom to raise us. They give us all the best things they can afford. When we’re sick, they take us to the doctor and spend all day with us. When we’re sad, they try to comfort us. None of this is easy or convenient, yet they willingly do this for us without requesting anything in return.

Can You See Their Efforts?

A lot of people complain about their parents, or even resent their parents for not treating them the way other parents treat their children. But if we put ourselves in our parents’ shoes, we realize that they are already trying their best. No parent intentionally tries to make their children hate them; they just have limited ability. Every parent shows love to their children in their own way. But sometimes, we don’t see it because we’re too focused on how our parents “should” be better.

  1. What hardships did your parents go through to raise you? How can you repay their gratitude?
  2. Repeat question 1, but for other close people around you.
