Unconditional Love

{Photos by Sabrina; wearing Jacob tweed moto jacket, Boohoo heels, Wilfred faux leather shorts, Tibi tank}


On Monday a friend of mine went to court to morally support one of a young person she works with. My friend went because this kid has no parents. This kid never knew his dad and his mom was MIA and has her own issues. It's no wonder he got into some bad stuff. Someone this young shouldn't be going through things like this on their own.

Often when we complain about our parents giving us advises on everything, I always say it's because they don't want you to make the same mistakes as them because they care. It doesn't matter if you're 20 or if you're 50 (I watch my grandma nag at my dad all the time), have your own career and a family, they will still have a comment on how you can fix your life for the better.

Sometimes parents even give advise on things they have no experience in. Their advise will be outrageous because their information is based from a TV show or some bogus internet site, or because their friend's mother's aunt's husband's brother went through similar situations. Lately my mom is on a fad about how vitamins give you cancer. I just ho-hum and let her continue.

Parents tend to not listen to you because they are your parents. You can get a PhD in nutrition and health and they will still find something about your health to nag you on. You can reason with them until you're blue in the face and they still would rather believe in the information they hear from some random media.

It can make us crazy. But you know that their intentions are good. You will always be their baby. You know you can always depend on them. You know every time you call home, they will always have time to hear about your day. You can get into fights with them and you both can and will move on like nothing has happened.

It's unconditional love. This love is hard to find because you can't make someone love you like this. It's their choice to love you this way. There is no other motive other than you are their child. And it's tragic that some people never experience this type of love because they don't have parental figures. It's a blessing for us that have parents.


“In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again.”

  3. I totally agree with you Miss PopChampagne. Our parentswill always remain as our first love. We are lucky that we have parents who stll care a lot and always show concern to us eventhough we are grown-ups already. We should be thankful to God for giving us these wonderful people. :)

    By the way, love the jacket and the heels! ;)

    Love,

  6. It's so true. I am very lucky that I have a close relationship with both my mom and dad. With that being said they both can drive me crazy. I love them to pieces and I know they love me. I know they would do anything for me. But they are parents and I am their child so sometimes instead of being that shoulder to whine on they give me ridic advice which makes me want to rip my hair out. I'm so lucky to have that I know am. I just couldn't imagine bringing life into this world and not wanting to be apart of my child's world. How can you have children and not be there for them and with them? How can you not know whats going on in your child's life? I've heard one to many terrible stories on the news lately about children killing people and other awful things...it just leaves me wondering, where are the parents? How can your child be so bored that they want to know what murder feels like? Yes this happened. How can your child get hold of a gun and bring it to school? How can they be this angry at 13 yrs old? Why is your daughter/son bullying others to death? Where are you? Where is their guidance? Yes a 13 year old knows what he/she is doing they can make sense of right and wrong but at the end of the day its the parents job to know where their children are, what they are doing, and more importantly to give their children unconditional love. Kids need so much from their parents and there are so many parents out there who do give so much...and then there are some parents who are wrapped up in their own issues to be able to take care of their children.

    PS love this whole look as well. ;)

  7. Wow, what you wrote here really rang true for me. You have a way with conveying such thought-invoking posts! There are so many times I get frustrated with my parents over their viewpoints, but in the end, their concern for me and my decisions just proves how much they care.
    Anyway, on a sartorial note, I want to steal your shoes <3

  8. You're pretty smart. That's parents exactly. Although mine were a little different. I have to give my dad credit, sort of. Once we were out on our own, he didn't give advice unless he was asked--or if he was asked for money, then he gave you an earful. I never asked for money, so we were good. But he did lecture me a LOT when I was a kid...mostly on the way home from church (his favorite one was "you kids need to grow up and get out so I can worry about myself"--lol). Actually, I do need to give him credit. I offered him advice once when I was 13 (I was helping him install an air conditioner). He didn't take that very well--at all (45 minutes later he finally did what I'd suggested). But when I was 30 he actually asked me for advice. It was shocking.

  12. You are very right about unconditional love, its something that cannot be transfer or taught either. You must have it with you from day one. I love the outfit, simple, sleek, sophisticated and those heels are lovely!
