Teenagers, They're So Unreasonable

I wonder why my parents get angry when I cry. Why can't they simply sympathize with me, or, at the least, leave me alone? Why do they have to yell at me and tell me I'm being stupid? Honestly, it's not like I cry all that often. I think that the last time that I seriously broke down into tears was in ninth grade--and I was the only one in the room.

Well, I'm sorry I'm upset that I don't get to have the adolescent period you had. Just because it's over for you obviously means that it's not worth anyone having it. Forgive me for my momentary lapse in judgment. I must be mentally ill, as you so considerately warned. I'll just forget about the situation and become a bag lady one day. Man, I'll have it made! Those single, male hobos better watch out, because there's some hot stuff coming for them!

This is number one on my list of Things My Parents Did To Me That I Will Never Do To My Children. Even though it's probably one of the more normal aspects of my childhood. Including the bit where my mom threatened me with a psychiatrist, as though that was the worst thing possible.

Ironically, it's the sister who never had issues with my parents who ended up with the mental health problems.
