I’m 18, and yet I constantly feel as though I’m shouting at my parents
“Be proud of me!!!”
casually dropping things such as, getting an A or leaving an aced paper on the kitchen table, little things just to feel that little kid sense of accomplishment.
Even getting a “Good Job!” or a hug from my parents for doing something good makes everything 100% better and drives me toward making them proud in everything I do.
