Personal Growth, Coping Skills
1 min read

Do your parents ever say: "I don't have to care for you because you're so responsible!" or  "I have to take care of your sibling because they are more helpless than you."

Children who grew up with neglect (parents who worked all the time, parents who were absent, parents who didn't show emotional support) had to become an adult really fast. However, you realize that the independence is rewarded with more neglect.

I want to remind you that you can be a responsible, good worker, independent person and still ask for love and support from your parents.
