Question: “If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven’t you told them yet?”

“ Tell your parents and family you’re thankful for them and that you love them. When i left for school today I didn’t even tell my mom i loved her before I left” -Olivia. Huening

This quote is significant to me because I. can easily relate to it. There’s some days where I feel extremely thankful for my family and especially my parents. Then there’s other days where I feel that way but I don’t express myself to them and show them that. When I come home from a long day of school and my parents ask me , “How was your day?” majority of the time I give a very short answer and usually just say, “It was fine.” and then I walk away acting like I want nothing to do with them. Very rarely do I ever ask my mom or dad how their day was. Only when im in certain moods I have the strength to actually tell them what happened throughout my day and ask them how their day went. I like to always put myself into other’s shoes, especially people I care about. I can only imagine how my dad feels when I just tell him my day was fine and walk away. He probably feels that I don’t care about him and I want nothing to do with him. There’s also been multiple instances where I walk through the door and my dad asks me questions about my day and I just ignore him and walk straight to my room like I never heard a word that he said. Relating back to the question, giving your parents attitude is normal, everyone does it, but just a simple, “My day was great, I had a math test and I felt pretty confident on it. How was your day dad?” can never hurt you. It will only make your dad or mom feel cared about and it’s a simple way to show them that you love them without telling them.
