Dear Mom and Dad,
Let me start by saying that I’m sorry I will never be good enough. You’ve made that vividly clear for a long time and I would just like to take a moment to say that I’m sorry. I’m sorry I’ll never be whatever it is you want me to be even though I don’t think you know what that is or how I can accomplish it.
That said, life does not have to be as complicated as you make it. Stop being so stubborn. Stop being so closed. Stop making life hell for us. Start thinking more positively and progressively. Start keeping your promises. Start being the people you think you are.
