One thought on “The Curse of Trying to Meet to Your Parents’ Expectations

    I think I was assigned the role of ‘the inconvenient one’ or ‘the one who is always wrong’ when I was a child/ teenager. Nothing I did or said was right, my mother was always storming out of rooms because of something I’d done or said. I tried harder to please her. She just got more angry and offended. I tried harder and harder, nothing worked, so I gave up and stopped talking to her as a young woman. She is just always angry…always, always angry.
