Sometimes a gift, as simple as it may be, accounts for an invaluable asset in one's life. This is exactly the type of gift that Abby got for her parents.
Healing one’s inner child is real. There are many past traumas and painstaking experiences people have had and with adulthood, a piece of that pain remains within them. Thanks to thoughtful loved ones, this pain is taken away over time. A woman named Abby shared a TikTok video capturing the endearing reaction of her parents after she healed their inner child with the most assuring gifts. The woman’s video has gone viral and just the look on her parents’ faces says everything. The video showed the parents sitting on a couch with a wrapped-up gift each. As the video continued, the dad and mom eagerly opened up the gift with no idea what was inside.
“Giving my parents the gifts they never received as kids,” the text overlay read. As they continued to tear through the wrapping paper, the largest smiles began appearing on their faces. As they were able to see a glimpse of what was inside the package, they couldn’t control their delight. The mom was the first to figure out that she had gotten the gift she had dreamed of as a child. With a loud and happy gasp, she looked at her daughter with gratitude and love. The dad, too, soon opened up the present and simply silently smiled to himself upon finally receiving a favorite. While the dad hurriedly opened the wrapping paper, the mom took her own time, getting emotional and enjoying the moment.
She even paused in between, unable to control her tears and simply looked at her daughter. Seconds before completely unwrapping the gifts, the parents realized their dreams from childhood had finally come true. Taking a moment to take it all in, the parents held their gift boxes, which seemed to be toys. They sat back on the couch and let out tears of joy and relief, having their inner child healed. The video ended as they proudly and tearfully gazed at their gifts like little excited children. The woman’s gesture went viral and it left people crying at the thoughtfulness the moment held. Millions of people liked the video and even commented on it.
Many got a touch of what it felt like to have one’s inner child heal after years. “Giving them what they thought they could never have. My mom’s smile is so beautiful,” the caption read. The woman further shared in a comment that her dad had got a Coca-Cola semi and her mom got an easy-bake oven. Though the gifts were simple, they held priceless sentimental value for her parents. @charity_hopema said, “My stepmom gave me an easy oven when I was 35, I cried like a baby.” @smelly_shelly_2016 said, “I cried. This hurts because, at the end of the day, they’re just children who wanted love and toys but couldn’t afford it.” @vrginiawright87 said, “I think it’s time I buy myself a Barbie.” @gaietyjester said, “My mom grew up poor and always wanted a Barbie. My dad got her one last year and she cried so hard.” @_brainrot_ said, “Healing the inner child is important.”
