Sometimes, it is very difficult to communicate, even more when there is an age/reality difference, and even more when there is an authority hierarchy. Phew! You have reached an important phase in your life, one that is marked with transformation. Transformation means constantly readjusting to your new realities. And to readjust, you must first observe... observe yourself, observe others, without judgement, without criticism, without trying to change it right away. Those attitudes add a layer of negative emotion that's not only useless, but harmful too. Know yourself, accept yourself, look at yourself with love and compassion, for you are perfect now, and after you change, you'll be also perfect tomorrow. You are just what you need to be NOW.
Do be careful about piling up bad experiences between your parents and you. They can leave scars... I know it's not easy, and we all have to figure this out... but the trick is to preserve peace as much as you can, without neglecting your own TRUE needs, passions, emotions, and so on. When you find yourself all worked up, caught in a difficult situation because what you want and what you're asked to do are two different things... ask yourself, "Is this truly worth it? Is this truly what I want?"
Zylah, let me just bow to your beautiful wisdom and wish you a very good day!

yours, mine, and the facts.
