I work with kids a lot and I am always reflecting on my childhood and/or distortions. I realize that parents tell their kids to always do the right thing. Moreover, from my perception of this is that the right thing does not always prevail.
To a child many messages could come across as confusing. I think that sometimes parents forget about the grey area of life the area of unknown. The unknown can be something awesome or something not so awesome.
People no matter how old want love. My parents never say I love you to me. And it does hurt because I wish they were different.
Love is so confusing to me because it could be so simple. However, for as long as I can remember love was always so complicate.
Everyone deserves to be told at least once a day that they are loved because the world is scary and hearing three words could make the world a difference.
