Has anyone else had a hard time dealing with parental expectations?
I don't mean it in a bad way but basically for the first time in my life I'm making a series of decisions that I know are right for me but that are creating anxiety for them and friction in our relationship. And it means that I need to adjust how much importance I place on them agreeing with or being proud of my choices. Not as easy as it sounds. If anyone else has experienced something similar, would love to know how you handled it.
