Doing things to improve myself even of parents don't see it?
Yes 2 years ago i never cleaned dishes after myself and after get a very stiff lecture one summer, I have been determined to wash every single dish I use, even washing all the dishes. I have seen improvement in myself and I used to be satisfied that at least i knew I was doing it even if my parents don't acknowledge it. I thought eventually they would see my improvement. i was wrong. During vacation I washed every single dish, then one day I didn't do a dish yet and my grandma got on my case for it, I got upset w/her because I hate being accused of not washing after myself. My dad tells her that I never ever clean up after myself and that no one is there to cater to me. My grandma also pointed out there was a dirty cup left which was my dad's though he gave the excuse that he wasn't finished w/it, I would be told that I didn't clean up after myself. When i tried to defend myself he said I couldn't because I was wrong. It hurts me so much that I get lectured for something that I do and nothing ever seems to change. How can I be happy w/myself?
