My parents were/are great. They love me, always have. Always wanted what was best for me and provided a good life for me. Supported me through the good times, and especially through the bad times. But, unfortunately I've never been very close to them. I have never been the type of person to sit down with them and talk about my feelings, what I did in school, or when cool/bad things happen to me. I don't know why, it's not that I hate my parents or anything, I love them. It just wasn't me. I think it is time I changed that. I finally moved away so I don't see them everyday like I used to, now it's once a week if I'm lucky. So I definitely think it is time to grow up, have grown up conversations with my parents and not only look at them as just parents, but as friends. Because even though I didn't talk to them much when I was home, now that I'm gone, I miss them. I'm 21 now, I can go home and have a beer with my dad and watch the Lions, yell at the T.V. with him. I've done it with other peoples' dads, why not do it with my own dad? It's time I invite my parents out to dinner, yea they'll be paying for it, but hey atleast they will then know I want to go out with them. I should call them once in a while, tell them how my day or week went, tell them how school is going, even tell them I love them. I feel like it will change me for the better, and if anyone reading this is the way I used to be, I strongly suggest you follow my lead and do the same with your parents. It will make you feel better.
