Do you deserve to be loved?
That’s an interesting question, isn’t it? Some might say, it depends on whether you are a good person. Others might say that love is unconditional.
In some cultures, including one I was raised in, parents might use love as a kind of privilege, something to be earned, deserved, not readily given. I’ve heard some parents telling their children that if they do not behave well, their parents will leave them and become a parent to another child. This suggests that love can be given as a reward or removed as punishment.
