    You think that the two people you could count on everytime, and that they'll always be there for you, but no my PARENTS, aren't. They are racist to my girlfriend, they look down on her family, they try to control everything I try to do, and they always want to make decisions for...

    Yeah, There Are Those Times

    Like, you know, you thought they could be there for you, but they can't. Like, all you need is someone who can listen, someone who won't judge at that moment, & yet, it still happens. You feel helpless, and alone. and it's disappointing, frustrating, but it usually happens.
