My opening post:
Ever feel like sometimes you just can't please your parents? You thought you did everything you were supposed to yet they still complain. You swear you've been good but they still take your phone, tell you you're in trouble. Parents. That basically sums em up. They are so scared they'll fail at their job of raising you right, yet they don't realize they're only pushing you away, and destroying you mentally. For those who can't relate to this, oh honey, I envy you. It's hard to tell your parents about your sexuality, how you choose to identify yourself, or god forbid, you decide you need therapy and have mental health issues. My parents claim to be supportive and I see that my poor dad, he's tried so hard, but he's got so many of hi own problems, whether he wants to admit it or not, he can't handle mine, let alone take them seriously. Some parents are like that, some are worse. At the end of the day though, it doesn't matter because you're still struggling, and as much as you want to sit and be the good understanding child, instead you cry yourself to sleep every night, or maybe you try other things, open up to different people, and simultaneously push away your parents. See I see both sides of the argument, which is a shock, considering I'm still in my teens. But I get it, I see their struggle, but I also see mine, and as horrible as it is to admit, I care about mine more, mainly because it's my struggle that I have to live with, day in day out and sometimes I really hate myself for that. Don't get me wrong I love my dad and I worry about him. I either care too much or not enough in my eyes. Sometimes I overreact and care too much about the wrong thing. Anyways, my point is, I am a confused, messed up little monster who's conflicted because I don't know which side to choose in the parent v.s. child argument. Which is why this'll be my only post about it. But i'm just curious. I want to know other peoples stories and battles with their parents. So, the question is, can you relate?
