No, my parents very much believe that a person should take responsibilty for their actions and choices made. There are a lot of people who have it much worse than you. Feeling sorry for yourself was never received well. I think it's the Irish Catholic in them.
You asked about 'your parents' and 'can you relate' so I answered about my parents and myself not you.
I know for fact my parents do and I remind them everyday why they should.
