they’re not supposed to snap at you, criticize you, or make you feel like a piece of shit. That’s what school is for; Home should be a sanctuary. Yet, every time we feel like we’ve done something good, they knock us down. “Not good enough”, “Why can’t you be more like…?” , “I didn’t raise you this way.” , “I expect more from you.” What more can a kid offer than their best? Give us a break, life isn’t a fucking competition. It’s a ride. So let us enjoy it.
