I understand where they are coming from, and their concerns and frustrations. I don’t do this and I don’t do that, and I take things for granted.
But how can everything always be my fault and only my fault?
One of the biggest issues I have here is that where there is an issue there needs to be some self-reflection occurring. Did I say that correctly? Did I get my point across? Did I overreact? How do I feel? Should I be feeling this? Etc. Etc. Etc. Yet, it seems like I am the only one doing that.
Just because you’re my parent doesn’t make you right 100% of the time. Just because you are the authority in the house, doesn’t mean you didn’t provoke a negative reaction on your end. It doesn’t make you a judge, or better than me, or give you the right to physically shove me away, multiple times. Yet, you’re always right and I am always wrong. No matter what.
Story of my life. And he wonders why we feared him growing up. And he wonders why I cannot come to him and talk about things. and he wonders why my sister LIVING IN ANOTHER STATE is capable of getting along with them and I am not.
It boggles my mind.
If someone cannot approach you to talk, it’s because they don’t feel you are approachable. Even if someone is shy and introverted, they will open up to someone they trust and WHO WON’T JUDGE THEM. A person that provides an honest and safe environment to be themselves. Every time I open my mouth, I am shot down. I am wrong. Oh, and I am also stupid and stubborn and do not want to listen to reason.
It is so hard to forgive someone that doesn’t admit to being human. If I am such a child, according to you, than why is it that I always have to be the one taking the higher road and apologizing for everything, like an adult?!. It’s bullshit.
You are right. I am angry, bitter, and resentful. But don’t I have a reason to be? Jeez. Oh wait, no I don’t. I’M SORRY. *roll my eyes*
