Parents called me a failure
Last night I got into a really big spat with my parents.
My mom went in my room and found my tax refund check that I haven't deposited yet. It was from a few months ago and my mom freaked out and said that they were expired. She was mad that I didn't deposit into my bank account yet. I get why she's mad, I know most people would deposit that ASAP before it expires but sometimes my best way of saving $ is by forgetting its there. I know it sounds kinda dumb but it works for me. Anywho, she told my dad and they both got mad at me. I told them that the checks had my name on them and even if they were expired it was my problem not theirs. They got even more pissed off and started yelling. I'm 23 years old, lived on my own throughout college, but after school I moved back home with them while I get up on my own two feet. Even though for the most part they treat me like an adult there are moments when I notice they try to assert control over me like when I was a kid. This was one of those times. They started yelling telling me to leave and get out of the house. My dad told my mom to cut me off and not buy any food for me when she goes to the grocery store. My mom started yelling to my dad to take away my car so I won't have a way to get to work. Then my mom started yelling at me telling me I was a failure & that she could always tell and that I'm not going anywhere. She then questioned when I would ever move out and that I'm not wanted in their house.
It pisses me off when they get all crazy like this. When they get heated they get totally irrational and start saying anything they can to get to me...and honestly deep down it hurts my feelings. I don't want to hear that I'm not wanted where I'm living. If I had it my own way I would be living on my own but I just graduated college & I'm trying to become financially independent. It hurts when my mom says I'm a failure and she doesn't think I'll ever go anywhere in life. I don't even know why she says that because I went to college, I got a degree, and I'm working on trying to find a permanent career job. I have a full time job I love right now but I'm still temping hoping it will turn into something more. Honestly this job economy is really tough...just because one goes to college doesn't mean they are going to be able to afford their own home and land a good job right away.
