I have never really understood the whole blame it on the parents deal. I mean, people who blame their parents for whatever problems they have as adults. I’d be interested in a serious conversation with someone who habitually blames their inadequacies on their parents. Anyone whom I’ve ever asked, or begun such a conversation with, inevitably changes the subject or gets really angry.
Your experiences form you who you are… for better or worse, but blaming your parents because you’re a loser is pretty pathetic. It is essentially admitting that you have no ability to carve your own path other than the one your parents laid out for you. My parents weren’t always there, nor were they all that “parental” but it didn’t stop me. If I fail, I fail because i made poor choices and didn’t learn anything from my previous experiences, not because my parents didn’t love me enough or buy me enough shit when I was younger.
Are you out there Mr. or Ms. Blame Game? Would you be willing to let me pick your brain?
