    RED = low quality
    GREEN = high quality
    IN-BETWEEN = mid quality
    CIRCLE = basically got
    X = basically lacked
    ? = I dunno, but probably lacked

    I'm not gonna say my parents ignored me as a kid. But as their first kid, they definitely raised me like a typical Asian family, because they didn't know otherwise. My brother definitely got a better start because they knew better the second time around. The only serious attention I got as a kid was when I failed to do things properly, as getting top grades and high successes were what was expected of me and thus not worthy of praise anymore than breathing and eating is. After becoming an adult, having non-Asians tell me how talented I am in this and that still kinda feels weird because I felt like I was getting legitimate praise for simply breathing and eating.

    So "mental health" did not exist as a concept in my youth. If I couldn't stand the pressures of performing well, that's my problem, because "everyone else" (ie Asian classmates) is able to handle it no problem. You can see what kind of effect this has in my adult life.

    One of the worst pieces of advice I got as a kid was "wait to do the things you want like video games or fun or girlfriends; education now helps you get what you want later". Little did my parents realize that in order to do those things in the future, I needed to be educated back then. It doesn't help that my Mom never dated and her first and only serious relationship was with my Dad, so she had basically zero advice in that department, other than "it'll happen!". My Dad likewise wasn't of much help because he wasn't the smart one in his family so he had no clue about computers and tech and what youth-oriented intro to programming courses existed.

    All in all I won't say my parents didn't raise me well. But they definitely left out a few key pieces of information that definitely continues to affect me as an adult. But it's more like, it's not so much that I'm incapable of filling in the gaps in my knowledge... but rather, I don't exactly know WHAT I don't know, y'know? I guess as long as they raised me to be able to learn, that's all that matters, and thus filling in the gaps is my own problem.

    i think my mom might be paranoid schizophrenic. she talks obsessively about how people are going into her house and taking stuff but refuses to get a hidden camera for some reason.

    it's as if she enjoys whoring herself out to these imaginary people coming into her house, but then still complaining about it to me

    God I hate her

    ...actually I'm a moron who forgot to actually use red.

    ...

    quality of how much I got from my parents when I was a kid. Low = not a lot, high = a lot, mid = between a lot and not a lot

    Hey, you guys invented the language, not me

    ...

    I was in the middle of drawing one up, but then I spilled ramen all over it and it ruined all the crayon artwork I did for it, so I just gave up.

    2/10?! Shit, my parents are going to kill me! Make it 6/10 at least, that way I can at least show that I'm still "above average" ;_;

    There's like 10 bags of rotting garbage in the house because my mom "forgot" to renew garbage services.

    Now she's saying she "don't got no money" for it despite the fact she spent $70 on cigarettes yesterday. I fucking hate addicts

    Before I say anything:

    I love my parents, and they love me and my brother. They helped me through many things and raised me to the best of their ability. They're not perfect and I don't care that they aren't perfect.

    That said, I can cross out a few things, mainly mental things. I wasn't taught much about how to cope with stress. My own parents suffered heavily from stress and anxiety and didn't know how to deal with it themselves. My dad would go out and drink heavily and my mom would do nothing but binge watch tv and treat me like her therapist. My dad's gotten away from drinking, but my mom has gotten worse since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

    My parents always told me how much they were proud of me, but I never felt proud. It always felt as if they were saying it because they loved me, not because I should be proud. Nothing I do ever feels good enough, my mind is full of thoughts of failure. I thought my mom would understand, so I opened up to her. She always says the same spiel of how she and dad are proud of me, how I've accomplished so much, and doesn't get why I feel this way.
