Parents, they give you YOUR life, but then they give you THEIR Life too ! It is very true statement and practically correct as well.
From the day we are born, parents spend their lives trying to bring up, develop their children into the greatest human beings they can possibly make them. Parents make unconditional sacrifices and give up their lives for us!
When we are young, parents sacrifice their sleep and rest. They are the first ones to wake up and the last ones to go to sleep. They are focused only on one goal, to provide for their children. They go through continuous hard work all day just to make sure that they have done everything for their children, from giving us food and shelter, to teaching us how to prepare for the world, to teaching us how to prepare for judgment day, to teaching us how to be a good citizen and most importantly, how to be great human beings.
Parents do all this not to get any benefit from their children, but only with the hope and belief that their children will become pious, educated, and respectful to their parents, useful to their family, society, country and a living example of success.
When we hurt our parents, we are actually hurting ourselves. Do you think, anybody in the world is crazy enough to do harm to themselves ? I don't think so... Taking into consideration the love they have given us, have we ever for a moment thought what they have been doing to make us happy? Are we grateful for what they have done for us? Have we shown them our gratitude?
Unfortunately, instead of loving them back, respecting them, being grateful and showing gratitude, we have always been complaining, blaming and hurting them. We forget that parents are the ones who have taught us the meaning of life; they have taught us how to live this life and lead a life of contentment. They are the ones who have given us everything, from A to Z. Yet, we are ungrateful and disrespectful towards them. Ask your self, Is this humanly fair and true ? If No, How can we be so cruel & shrewd ?
It is our moral responsibility to take care of our parents. We should make sure that we are good human beings and whatever we do in this world reflects upon our parent's personalities and their upbringing. Listening to our parents is the only way we can show our parents that we really love them and care for them. It is a way to show them that their precious time that they have spent in making us great human beings has not gone in vain and they have been successful. This is all they want from us and we should do everything in order to assure this to them.
