Irrational hate of parents - August 17th 2009, 05:49 AM

I've noticed more and more that at times I really HATE (I could probably use a stronger word) my parents for the way they interact with me, or even how they act in general. One of them could make the slightest comment about me and inside I think "Just shut the beep up". I know that such thoughts are uncalled for, especially if the comment was harmless.

In our family everyone is "right", if you know what I mean. It's impossible to admit you're wrong because that would be a sign of weakness. My dad is the worst for this and I think I'm picking it up from him. He's always talking "like a boss" and whatever he says goes, and anyone who thinks otherwise is clearly not intelligent. Often it's not what is being said, it's the tone which is being used, I'm sure you all had this.

When ever I see them talking with strangers, like making jokes and being nice, I feel disgusted because either the strangers are getting special treatment or I am getting "special" treatment.

More and more I find myself interacting with my parents like I would with an opponent rather than a friend. I'm genuinely afraid this will spread to other areas in my life and hinder any existing and potential relationships. God knows I do not want to grow up into my parents, even though it's the human nature to.

I just wanted to rant really, I don't have any particular question, although I am aware that the only issue that exists is not that my parents have a problem, it's that I have a problem towards my parents. If anyone can suggest a good mind set to help me overcome this, I would highly appreciate this!

I think a big part of becoming an adult is realising and thinking your parents are not always right. Sometimes it can at first come out as anger or haterd, but after a while it mostly stops, and as you are realising you don't have that much reason to hate them is a step along the way to that.

h is a bluebird that you see from afar
it is real and as sure as the first evening star
can't touch it, or buy it, or lock it up tight
but its there just the same
making things turn out right
