Is it too much to ask for my parents to occasionally be mature?
I get shouted at, because something I said or didn't say was apparently not respectful enough. They have no argument, and all they can say is that I'm going to fail at life... This is really not helping my self esteem problems, which I'm in therapy for, but ironically, my parent's insurance pays for the therapy so I can't just say "screw them" and leave.
They were never even slightly supportive of anything I wanted to do. Their first comment was always, "Hah. Good luck with that." in a sarcastic tone. And if I wanted to talk about it, the response was something to the effect of, "Not interested, I don't want to hear about it."
Are parents supposed to be like that? Whenever I questioned them in the past, they'd always make an excuse like, "Well, at least we didn't beat you. Look at how bad some people have it."
