Even though I am a grown ass woman, I still have a tendency to want to please the parents.
I believe that I am doing some things in my life that I could move on from or do differently just because I subconsciously do not want to upset them or put more stress on their lives.
I am starting to get better at not doing this, but I think that I still need work.
I know I am far from where they were at this stage in life and I know that I am not as comfortable as I would like to be. So why is it hard to say no to them when doing so could help me be better? It's not like they can spank me or ground me or take anything away from me.
I guess I just want to be seen as a good daughter. I know they say that they are proud of me, but I guess I just want to not do anything that would change their opinion.
Crazy, I know.
