Hello again Chloe and Paris! Welcome to the clubbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
I don't think so either. My mom has always been especially frustrating and has a tendency to point out things I'm doing wrong or just imperfections on my body that I really don't want pointed out, and sometimes, it just puts me in a depressive mood like I'm not doing anything right. That and like Mudkip_Mishchief, I also spent a lot of time cooped up inside, mainly just talking to people online or doing stuff online, so I didn't get out a lot. My mom was always super paranoid about something happening to me or people not showing up or whatever, and it was just super frustrating. She's not as bad now because I think she's finally realizing "okay, she's an adult now, she can handle herself, I can let go a little bit and she'll be fine," but she's still kinda overprotective. I'm kinda at a point now where I'm just like "ok well, I'm an adult now and I'm gonna do it anyways if I want to," and she just kinda accepts it. It's more "hey, I'm gonna do this" and she's like "are you sure you wanna do that???" and I just say I'm gonna do it anyways (assuming I don't realize it's a terrible idea). But really me not getting out a lot has made me feel like I don't have a lot of friends irl and just kinda screwed me over socially. I was able to join clubs and organizations when I was in school, but I still just felt super left behind socially and now I think I'm kinda paying for it now in a way since I'm older and don't really get out much with friends.
nah. usually parents just care and are trying to protect and nurture their kids in the way they think is best, and in a lot of cases the kids thank them with hindsight after becoming adults, but at the same time parents can make truly truly awful decisions that really tear apart their children... either way it is valid to be heavily affected by what your parents do. it's always best to try to be more positive about it until you can stop relying on them and do your own thing, but it's easier said than done, especially in more extreme circumstances..
