I Wish My Parents…

  • Stopped worrying about how my problem makes them look

  • Saw that something was wrong, even when I pretend to be OK

  • LISTENED!

  • Tell me they loved me more often

  • Were not so self-involved

  • Noticed when I started to change for the worse

  • Were not so naïve and ignorant

  • Accepted me

  • Asked me straight up “What’s wrong?” Don’t assume youknow

  • Followed through when they promised to get me help
