Educator Michelle Liew, B.A. explains “Remember that they are your parents, even if you disagree with their pushy ways. Resolve the past and let go of any misgivings for your sake, not theirs. Confront them with respect, and let them know how you feel. Consider seeing a therapist if they still try too hard to manage your life.”
Be kind to your parents and to yourself. Express your thoughts and feelings openly but be respectful. But most of all, focus on your own life. Focus on your passions, hobbies, interests, education, career, friends and relationship. Take your attention away from them and give all your attention to your own well being.
