Kevin Posted December 19, 2022 Share Posted December 19, 2022 I’m in my hometown for Christmas and basically I hate being around my parents. I feel so uncomfortable around them and I shut down. Then I feel guilty because they aren’t doing anything horrible to me. If a stranger was acting like them i don’t think it would bother me that much. So I don’t know why they bother me so much. Of course it’s because they are my parents and there is a lot of negative history. But why can’t I just let it go. None of that negativity is happening now. I feel so guilty and ashamed that I can’t just drop it and forgive them. I was just with my mom and I was fighting back tears most of the time I was with her. All she was doing was having a normal conversation with me and asking me how my life is but I just wanted to run and get away. I have no idea why I wanted to cry but I didn’t want to cry in front of my mom. I’m so confused by it all and it’s honestly horrible. Also I feel so alone because I don’t think I can talk to my parents about this. I don’t think it will ever resolve. I’ve been like this since I was a kid.
