You know, it shouldn't be normal to grow up with angry explosive parents who swear and scream, but like a lot of us do, and it probably messes us up. Part of the reason I think I am afraid to talk about problems, even small ones to my parents is because they seem emotionally unable to handle problems in their own lives. They have to irrationally scream and act mean to people over things, and this does nothing to solve anything. They cannot handle stress in a manner that doesn't hurt other innocent people most of the time. Ever since I was young, I always tuned into this. At eight years old, I remember my biggest goal was to give my parents the least worry possible. At an older age, I realized that worrying about my parents feelings all of the time to unhealthy point was stupid. I keep to myself still, but I try to be less involved in their drama because it's not healthy for me. I'm not their therapist or miracle worker, and I will take time to myself.
