This is a great article. I love that you took a strong stance and owned it.

I don’t know what your relationship is like with your parents, but mine is a strong and healthy one. They want whats best so they push me towards the very things you’re rallying against here. I agree with you, but it’s also hard to break out the cycle when two of the people I love and respect the most unintentionally try to keep me in it.
