A.N: Parents please be careful what you say to your kids. Your speech on their best interest can come across as dream crushing, your disdain for their hobby will lead them to do it in secret. My parents often push me to do things I don’t want, often tell me I can’t/won’t make money writing. They don’t know I have this page and this is how I feel every time they bring up what I should do for my future.

Dreams shatter

Hearts break

Tears flow

Darkness grows

Eyes close

Pain rises


I give up

You win

Proud of me now?
