Rant about your parents, what upset you? They don't understand you or they smothing you?
I'm 23, living at home, and feel like I'm treated like a 16 year old girl. Blech!
we were going threw some hard times and had to move in with my mom for a while... omgosh!! im going crazy here lol i love my mom but she is nuts lol she goes through all my stuff and cleans my room i hate that cuz we cant find anything! and its not just my room its my boyfriend i know it bugs him to but he doesnt say anything.. if i yell at my kids for doing something bad she gets mad and says leave her alone... grrr... lol cant wait to move. and her boyfriend.. that is a whole nother story..
!then... lol she always has to know where i am and wants things done her way.. i think when i move we will get along much better.
yeah, they can be overbearing
I haven't spoken to my parents in years. It started when I was in my teens and a punk about a hundred years ago. They hated everything about me, I moved out then I had to move back in which was the worst nightmare. I moved back out and haven't been back since.
They think I should grow up (which means not having purple hair lol), settle down and get a proper job with a husband and all of that malarkey.
Don't wanna don't wanna don't wanna
you know some of us never want to settle down, I don't. I want to spend my life traveling, as long as I can pay off my loans...I am good
my grandma wants me to be home every day cleaning and cooking for when my man gets off work lol not going to happen... maybe if i had my own place but until then dont count on it
I told my parents when I was five or six that I was never going to get married or have kids, I don't think they believed me lol.
I'm like you, I want to travel everywhere, see everything.
when I am ready to settle down, I guess I will do it. I was engaged twice, but never went through with it. I guess I havn't met the right one
and wait, your grandma said that? well I know times were differnt then...but please to spend all day cleaning...not going to happen here
Omigosh... I feel really bad, I was going to rant about my mum, but compared to everyone else we get along quite well... I think the problem with me and my mum is that we are both VERY similar... to similar - particularly with the fiery temper department... so we can get along really well and as soon as one of us is in a bad mood... we erupt like a volcano. We forget it the next day though and are friends again!!
The worst one would be my dad... my parents separated when I was 8 and although I see him once a week (which I SHOULD be grateful for I guess) it's like there's no emotional effort on his part, although a physical one for him to come and see me. I don't know, maybe it's just me, he tells me he loves me and stuff, but he doesn't show it through other actions, I sort of love him, he's my dad... but I don't like him.
It's funny how sometimes I kinda crave for his attention, yet at other times I couldn't care less if he was out of my life altogether. Maybe I'm being melodramatic?
After reading this thread though I realise that my situation is no-where near as bad as I'd imagined it in my head, I guess I've actually had a pretty good life and childhood - maybe slightly too sheltered by my mum, but one day I won't have that so I'm taking as much advantage of it as possible!!
I had a very good life too, but sometimes you need to get things off you chest. I don't want to upset my parents, but I think they expect so much
True... while we are getting things off of our chest then, I do feel too sheltered by my mum not enoough by my dad.
Aw bless you Michelle... that must put you under alot of pressure!!
I really try just to live the way I want, I am 28 after all.
I don't blame you honey, you are your own person... so you should live as you please, especially at 28 years old...
I know, but I think they, in their own way are trying to help
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
