It can feel like sacrifice on some occasions but what drives all the actions that parents do is accompanied by a tremendous unconditional love for their children. This is better for you to know now, or at least as soon as possible. In this way when you have to feel that sacrifice, instead of having weight in your heart you will fill it with immense love.
Being a mother or father is not easy. Nobody teaches us to be. What we know is what we learned at home, when our parents took care of us. Although we did not realize it as children, now that we are adults we have realized that it was not an easy road for them. It was full of bumps and uncertainties, where anxiety loomed every moment.
The reality is not how they had told you
On television or the media they sell you an easy motherhood, with children always clean, well educated and calm parents all the time. Nothing is further from reality. Life with children is full of rocky paths that are difficult to jump or skirt, cliffs and dark areas that are very scary. But we go through them, and we do it with courage.
We go through them because our children need us to. Because we are his everything, we are his life. They depend on us and there is no discussion about it. While it is true that families can be large and there are also the figures of grandparents, uncles and other influential adults in the lives of children … parents are the strongest pillar that must be supported to grow and develop as healthy and emotionally stable.
That beautiful baby is difficult to calm down and takes hours of sleep at night, leaves you exhausted 24 hours a day. That 5-year-old boy is quite an earthquake and depletes all your energy reserves. As they grow, things do not improve and when adolescence arrives, everything is even more complicated. But as parents, every time an obstacle arrives we transform, we become more resilient, strong, resistant, sensitive and we learn that what matters most in family life is unconditional love.
The love of children is what gives meaning to everything
When you finally realize that expectations are not like reality and you accept it, everything changes. Everything improves. We can look the truth in the face, know that there are limits to life and that time flies by. While it is true that there are days that go by slowly, the years fly by. Motherhood and fatherhood are paths full of obstacles, but love for our children makes that path worthwhile and that we have the courage to walk it with integrity.
When they say that love can do everything, it is true. You realize when you have your children in your arms. It does not matter if the tantrum is from a 5 year old or a 15 year old teenager, although the intensity and the triggers are different, love is the only thing that will guide the situation and redirect them.
Calm, tranquility, trust and love are essential at all times. It is necessary to stop worrying so much about the past or the future, and start loving our children unconditionally in the present. Your children deserve to feel that love through caresses, good words, hugs …
A beloved child will be a man who will know how to love in the future. You will understand that the key to happiness lies in this little four letter word: love. To understand this as parents is to understand the secret of motherhood and fatherhood. Unite your mind and your heart and you will realize that the things you do do not have to make you suffer, they must make you see that you are a perfect person within your imperfections for your children.…
