PSA!!! Parents are not always right! In fact often they're completely wrong! Just because they're adults and your caregivers, it doesn't mean they can't be immature, ignorant, abusive, neglectful, or simply have stupid views.
YOU ARE NOT OBLIGED TO RESPECT YOUR PARENTS!!!!
No matter how small they make you feel or how much they manipulate their position of power, they are humans and they can be shitty and wrong just like anyone else. There's so much more to cover regarding parents and neglect/abuse/conflict but this post is simply a reminder that you do not have to like or respect your parents just because they're your parents! Fuck the idea of unconditional love and respect no matter how badly you're treated, just because of 'family'. You are worthy of love and you did not ask to be born into this world, they made that decision. They have a responsibility to care for you and love you and you should never have to feel apologetic for your existence or the way you are. 🕊
