My mom was driving me back from practice. We were talking. All was well. The conversation slowly tones down. And she says smiling, “By the way, today's my birthday. No one reminded me so I thought I should just say so.”

训练回来妈妈开车带着我,我们聊着天,一直聊得挺好,节奏突然变慢了,她笑着说:“顺便说一下,今天是我生日。没人想起来,所以我想应该提一下。”

She laughed. A laugh so painful I wanted to cry. She hasn't had a proper birthday celebration in two decades.

她笑了,笑得让我难受到想哭。她二十年都没好好过生日了。

Yeah. It's a little thing. But it mattered like hell. I used to remember. But things change.

是的,生日是小事,但也很重要。我以前还记得,但很多事情都变了。

The hardest truth, you ask? Love is one sided, most of the time.

你问最残酷的事实是什么?爱是单向的,大多数时候都是如此。

That's because most people want love but not the responsibility it comes with. A parent takes all that responsibility. They take it all. I promise you. They'll take it to their grave. Even if they never get it back.

那是因为大多数人想得到爱,却不想承担相应的责任。父母承担了所有责任,付出了所有,这一点我可以向你保证。即使永远得不到回报他们也会爱你到生命的尽头。
