I don’t understand why parents can’t love their children for who they are. Is it really that hard to accept your own child, no matter what? As long as they aren’t hurting themselves or anyone else, and are happy, then why should it change the way the parents see them? It actually hurts me to see shit like this. The people I care a lot about are being hurt by the people who are supposed to love them unconditionally, and it makes me sick. I grew up with my mom telling me that she accepts me no matter what, and just wants to see me happy, so maybe I just don’t understand how a parent could feel any different about this. As a parent, shouldn’t you want your kid to be happy? And yet, that’s apparently not how things actually work, and that’s sad. No, it’s not sad; it’s horrible.
