My parents were too dumb and ignorant to know they were abandoning me psychologically. They thought all that mattered was that they were "there for me" physically, and they couldn't realize how they kept me from exercising my natural brilliance because they were so caught up in stupid ****!
ugh! run away when you get a chance. don't waste your time trying to get through to them, or with the idea that you have to conform to anything they say you are. i don't know you, but i imagine you're too smart to suffer because of someone else's problematic thinking skills.
