Growing up in a family with so much negative lectures only made me have less confidence in myself. ItвЂ™s a shame to say but with all the smiles you see here I donвЂ™t do this when I am at home. There is no such thing as my parents are ever at fault, so there is never вЂњI am sorryвЂќ from them. There are no such things as hugs, kisses, or even I love you. I was raised to show no affection. I know itвЂ™s like I am living the life of two people but in my house we have only strict conversatation only on school and how grades should always be improved. I donвЂ™t ever do well on test but I know I try my best for everything else to balance those. Yet itвЂ™s never good enough for my dad. Growing up being the oldest I have to get it the hard way whether or not I like it. I am a role model to my younger siblings. In my dadвЂ™s eyes I am a failure because his priorities are school. When he was a boy, he did well in everything he attended so he expects me being the same. By all means I try my best but yet thatвЂ™s never good enough. We could be talking about cars and then it some how goes on to lectures about school. I have heard this since I was in kindergarten. Yet only a few years back was when my mom gave me a talk and she made all those years fell off my shoulders. She reminded me and its only awkward to hear for the first time in my life that I was being reminded again from my mom that she is here for me because she is my mom who will love me and back me up for anything but as long as I am will to learn thatвЂ™s all that matters she will put out everything else. That was the day that brought joy to my heart that I still have a mom.
There is no greater love than that of the unconditional love between a parent and child. It requires a parent or a child to love, be forgiving, and caring, despite one's actions or beliefs. Regardless of the era, the timeless theme of unconditional love between a parent and child can be found in literature. Both the Elizabethan and Contemporary era contains stories and poems that involve unconditional love between a parent and child. For example, in the Elizabethan era story King Lear, Cordelia searched for her father to help him even though he robbed her of her inheritance and banished her from his kingdom. In the Contemporary era story The Hunger Games, Katniss nurtured and provided for both her mother and her sister when her mother became severely depressed and was unable to care for them. When a parent loves a child or vice versa, they want what is best for them. However, it is important to understand that unconditional love may not always be reciprocated. One can always wish and hope that the love is returned, but should never depend on receiving it.
