Support

Ok we all need a little support every now and than right? Some of us may not want to admite it but we do. Now the people that you want the support from are usually the ones you love, but what happens when they don't or won't support you? Aside from the fact that it hurts like hell, there isn't really much you can do. Now I'm not talking about getting support from a boyfriend, husbant, girlfriend, or wife, and even some friends, they support you with anything or they will tell you how you can improve something your working on. The people I'm talking about are your parents. The people that raise you and tell you that they will always be with you and support you no matter what. And they will be behind you no matter what you do or where you go.

Now I know that some people don't always deserve support from thier parents but those people are normally the ones that need it the most right? I'm not talking about having your parents say good job or anything like that. I'm talking about having them say I'm proud of you, or no matter what you do we will always be there.

There are always some parents there to knock you on your ass and make sure you stay there or tell you you can't do what you want. Now I'm only 22 no kids or anything. if I ever said that to my child, I would let them smack me. I mean come on, your kids need you the most, even after they are grown, kids will always go to thier parents for advice or someone to talk to.

Now being the youngest of 3 kids, I know what it is like to have your parents tell you you can do what ever you want, but than they turn around and tell you they don't want to be in your life, or they won't even give you thier phone number. I don't know how many of you have ever had the happen to you, but it hurts like hell. What would you do as a parent? would you tell your kids to do what ever they wanted to do, that you would support them no matter what? or would you tell them you didn't want to be in your life?

I know what tough love is ladies and gentlemen, but there is a fine line between tough love and just being ass hole parents. So to the parents that read this, and the people that want to be or are going to become parents what would you do?
