Do you feel like you owe your parents?
I've felt that way for a while now. It's stopped me from progressing in life.
I don't even know what to do anymore.
How is that irrational? It makes perfect sense. They brought their child into the world, knowing his life could be screwed up and he could suffer, and yet they do it anyway. It's their fault for not being able to control their animalistic urges.
You don't owe anyone anything, but it's best to keep at least a businesslike relationship with your parents so you have a safety net. If my parents didn't give me money or take care of me I wouldn't have anything to do with them.
nice memetic buzzword, idiot. How am I a cuck? Last time I checked a cuck was someone whos girlfriend is cheating on them. If you are going to refute my point, you are welcome to anytime.
my parents did the bare minimum to raise me as was required by law.
they gave me clothes and they gave me food, but they were required by law to do that. My mother is a shit cook, and rather than learn to follow a god damn recipe she told me "don't like it don't eat it." Basic necessities like mouth watch I had to pay for out of my own pocket because they thought it was a luxury or I would use it to get high or something. Can you imagine growing up scared that your parents will find out you clean your teeth properly? They set up arbitrary rules, when I would use logic to show their decision making skills were foundation-less they would just say "too bad, what I say goes," and they were habitual liars. They used me as a source of free labor when I was young and they and are banking on me to be their retirement plan.
You only did what was required by law to raise me, I'm doing the same, and luckily for me the law doesn't require me to do shit.
