I understand the “you wouldn’t be alive without them” and other shit, but there are times when I really am annoyed.
Is this wrong? I don’t think it is. They’re human too, and they make mistakes. But I’m a human being as well, and my patience is not infinite.
Unfortunately I live in a country where the parents are still absolutes in the house. Voicing your objections and criticism (constructive and whatnot) will be met not with open-mindedness and acceptance of the way things are different from their time, but with the immediate accusation that you are being unfilial. Sigh
