It Often Scares Me....

to think that I will become like my parents. Don't get me wrong, I love my parents. But my dad isn't really a people person and he isn't really big on family get togethers. I on the other hand am a people person and I love my family so much and I want to continue to be like that. My mom has had a lot of Psychological issues in her past.  And I most certainly don't want to be like that.My parents are divorced and I don't want to ever have to go through that.All of this scares me because I don't want to be like them..or at least when it comes to this stuff.My dad has high expectations of me..and I am scared because I know that somewhere along the line I will disappoint him..because people do make mistakes.

You won't become someone you don't want to be. You always have choices hun. As for your father's high expectations, you can only do the best that you can and no more. He should back off and not stress you out so much. As for your mother's psychological problems, there are medications for that sort of thing. And just because your parents are divorced, it doesn't mean that you will be divorced one day too. Try to relax. I know it isn't easy, but just take one day at a time and don't be so hard on yourself hun.
