As adults, we try to develop the character traits that would have rescued our parents.— Alain de Botton
I saw this on Tumblr and … yes. I learned to manage my money better than my parents. I looked for the body and size acceptance my mother sought for in diet pills and Ayds. I avoid the family members that don’t accept me. I rebelled against my father by not smoking. I got the college degree that neither of my parents had.
I still have problems, of course. I just have different ones.
