Not to be mean, because I am caring and sensitive, but my parents are so annoying, especially my father. Because he exaggerates about everything, repeats his stories alot, and criticises others alot. I dont know how I survived growing up in this style of a family. But anyway, Im married with one child, and I still have to hear this behavior when my parents decide to come over. Please dont think I am being childish, but I have alot of reasons to dislike this according to my experiences. I do speak up for myself and I do put my foot down. But, how should I deal with people that are so gassed up with themselves and feel like they are in control of things when in reality they arent?? Tell what is this.
