Tough love sucks!
I'm extremely sick of my parents saying they're harsh and strict and nasty because they love me, shouting and lecturing and nagging me and speaking in harsh firm tones. Love and meanness don't go together. It's not about loving me, it's about how they treat me so I'm not saying I think they don't love me or anything. How they treat me matters more. Especially as silly mistakes I make happen by accident and I never intend to do bad or its not my fault. They just accuse me of making habits when I say this to them when it's unintentional every time it happens, I don't ever see it coming. They ought to just accept my absent-minded daydreamy ways and that I find my surroundings boring and what's in my head more fun so my eyes will always skip things or things will always go in one ear and out the other and only part of what people say will always go into my head. I so hate the phrase "for your own good" or "for the best", is not good or the best if it upsets me. I only care how I feel and I have my own definitions of good and bad! I'm tired of apologising when they say sorry means I'll never do it again when I never know it's about to happen. They don't deserve my apology if they're being so cruel about it anyway. They should be apologising to me for their attitude. I'm sick of nagging me to "think" too. I think in my own way for Lord's sake!!! All they care about is consequences, well intentions matter more!!
