I had one of those relationships with my parents that was really volatile. Them always wanted to make sure their daughter was okay, getting decent grades, not into trouble, etc. Me just wanting my privacy.
But these days, I honestly think I might be turning into my parents.
I always knew I had my dad’s temper. I have a very short fuse and when that fuse is lit I explode. I also have my dad’s emotions. I cry fairly easily, especially when it comes to family stuff or animal movies. But although I have my dad’s short fuse, I also tend to lean towards my mom’s wanting to placate the situation. My temper is short lived and the minute it’s gone I just want to make nice and have things return to normal. I can also be a little goofy, something I think I get from my mom.
Those are things I’ve known for a long time. Things I’ve realized lately?
Well, I’m a neat freak. Yeah, I have my messy days, but on those days when things are a mess I feel like my entire LIFE is a mess. I’m headstrong and when I get an idea in my head I want to do it RIGHT NOW.
