It's simple really. When your child is born, you either make the commitment to love him unconditionally or you don't. Of course you may just blurt out the words but so does every parent. They say they love their child, no matter what and that there's nothing in this world their kids could do that would change that. But just saying it doesn't mean anything.
People don't look at me like I'm human anymore. They haven't seen a human in ten years, only a monster. Why? Because I refuse to break a promise that I made so long ago and I am simply unable to extinguish a love that many think I should.
Let me ask you something, do you love your child? I mean really love him? Do you tell him everyday that you love him more than anything in this world; including yourself and that you'll never stop loving him no matter what? "No matter what" is quite a loaded statement, more than you know. So really think about it for a moment. You've gotta use your imagination to make sure you're not just fooling yourself and saying shit that could someday come back and bite you in the ass. You can't just gaze at that innocent little baby propped up on your lap right now looking at you with blue eyes and pure love. That's too easy. You've got to do better than that. You got to picture him older, all grown up trying to make it in this world, and you got to stop picturing him graduating from medical or law school, all happy and successful and perfect, while smiling and waving his diploma and holding up your equally perfect grandson. You see, that's not reality, that's just your own little fantasy playing out in your mind.
