What kind of parent sees it fit to make their child (adult or otherwise) look like a demon amongst family members for simply expressing their feelings, needs, wants, and desires? Who does that?? What kind of parent talks negatively about one child to the other? Who does that?? What kind of parent gets angry because their child wants to live their own life and decides to attempt to explain the feelings they are having and their need for space? What kind of parent decides what type of help is considered acceptable based on their own needs vs. that of their child? What kind of parent holds grudges against their child for speaking their mind? What kind of parent makes their child responsible for their well-being when they are fully capable of taking care of themselves? What kind of parent uses guilt, obligation, and manipulation to prove a point to their child? I mean seriously…WHO DOES THAT??
Living a life where you feel guilty about being open about your feelings to your mother is no way of life at all. The one person in the world that you should be able to go to and express anything to without judgement let alone anger, frustration, fear, etc
. The one person in the world who should understand where you might be coming from is instead the one person who causes you the most heartache and pain. Go figure…It’s a wonder I have made it this far.
Just another day in the life of my thoughts…
