    I resonate so deeply with this. My parents weren’t the best either, and most of the time I wished they would just disappear/leave me alone, now that they’re gone, I miss them and all their bullshit. There will always be a piece of my heart missing. It’s been three years since my dad and 12 years since my mom and since I’m still really young and have only just started coming into my own, it’s only recently become important for me to piece them together and make sense of who they were,and why they did certain things.
    Thank you so much for this post, big virtual hug right back.

  4. Waw. Your post got me feeling really emotional. I don’t live in the same country as my parents since I started college and I can really relate to the “I wouldn’t call home often or even answer the phone when they called. I could do email, but not the phone.” It’s kind of funny because i am the Black sheep of my family too and I had lots of fights with my parents.But I don’t know what would I do if something happened to them. You are really strong for expressing these feelings and being so true to yourself. It’s a really nice post to share.
    Cheers,
    Sara
