I found this in my journal... I wrote it on August 16, 2011.
"Aren't parents supposed to always accept you for who you are? Aren't they supposed to love you no matter what? Aren't they supposed to love all their children equally? Aren't they supposed to always be there for you? Aren't they supposed to know when something's wrong and want to help? Aren't they supposed to support you in anything and everything you do? Aren't thy suppose to be your best and strongest allies? Aren't they supposed to hope that you just have fun? Aren't they supposed to wish you happiness in life? Aren't they supposed to follow you wherever you want to go? Aren't they supposed to wish you success in life but not push you to be perfect? Aren't they supposed to let you do the things you want? Aren't they supposed to catch you when you fall? Aren't they supposed to want what's best for you?"
I remember thinking these things all the time... I remember feeling so rejected by my parents. I still feel this way sometimes. The truth is though, they do want those things for me. They don't mean to hurt me either. I remember feeling like a total failure. Like nothing I did was good enough. Everyday was torture. I hated my life more and more everyday. I felt so unloved, unwanted. I know/knew I was/am not the favorite. My brother is so good. Who wouldn't want him as their son?? Then there's me... The independent one, the imperfect one, the one who messes up... A lot. But... I can't live that way anymore. My parents truly do want the best for me. I love them, and without them I wouldn't be here. I am so grateful to them. I love them so much. Thank you God for giving them to me.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. (Ephesians 6:1 NIV84)
Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old. (Proverbs 23:22 NIV84)
Listen, my son, to your father's instruction
and do not forsake your mother's teaching. (Proverbs 1:8 NIV84)
