    Default How angry are you with your mum and dad still

    I wouldnt trust someone that wasn't at all angry but the older you get the more you want to like, get over it right?

    Hardly at all because they did their best to overcome the shit they inherited from their parents/upbringing.

    I don't like playing the ooh I'm a Dad card, but you see your parents in a completely new light when you are one.

    That said, we're not close...

    They do do their best and they generally have harsher weirder 'shit' to overcome but knowing and appreciating that isn't enough, by itself, to completely forgive them

    Because these are all wounds that date back to when you were at your most vulnerable. For me taking loads of acid and mushrooms in late teens early twenties really helped. Even just first of all to clock on to and acknowledge how furious I was. It's not usually at the forefront of yer consciousness after alll

    Two tantrums away from being a padraig... Can't imagine your parents are exempt from that

    i do realise that often its more a curious form of tone deafness than actual anger thats why i dont get wound up any more.

    The rules are ostensibly simple: put an elastic band on one wrist. Every time you complain, switch it over to the other wrist. Repeat, until the band has remained on one wrist for three weeks.
    i really like the sound of that. I like to think I already try my best not to tell lies though not to the "Radical honesty" extent. and though i am maybe already quite over-mindful, i like the idea of projecting positivity this way...

    an alarmingly well-timed thread (in my world at least). Liking the title too - beats Oliver James' Larkin steal hands down.

    people who aren't angry with their parents are either
    - in the lucky 10% whose parents were actually good enough, and who ensured that no topic was off limits for discussion (the most important thing of all, imo - everyone fucks up, admitting to it is the thing)
    - psychopathically in denial.
