.it was good just a week ago.
Ladies and gents, I present to you my parental units. Gregory Hammonds and Sharon McDuffie. This picture was taken back when they liked each other. What's so sad is that I've never seen my parents smile or even look like they've even once loved each other. And what's the saddest thing about it all, is that this isn't common. That you or someone that you know feels the same way. My parents were never together while I was around. I was raised with my step-father being the man of the house. My dad lived with my sister. Everyone has a different story and that's cool, but why are OUR parents so selfish? They've made the whole thing about them, never really trying to caring to look at how their child has been affected or how they feel.
Graduation is in 3 weeks. :D but I'm a little ehh about it. My mom and my dad are both coming down. I'm their first daughter to graduate college but it's going to be awkward. I'm going to spend time with my mom while my dad kind of stands around and waits, then I have to go over and spend time with my dad while my mom does the same thing. It's not going to be a lengthy ordeal, but it will be odd. I don't even remember the last time that my parents spoke to each other. They don't say Happy Birthday or they don't share the Happy Holiday facebook posts or text messages. If it wasn't for me, there wouldn't be any proof that their love actually existed. (Well that may be a bit dramatic, but that's how they make it seem.) I wish that they could put all of whatever happened and mend their broken or improperly healed hearts and see that it's about ME. or US (if you can relate.)
This just makes me want to make it work with whomever I'm with. I won't be that selfish towards my child.
