A big part of adulthood is figuring out which lessons from our parents we want to keep, and which don't apply. In some cases, the advice we're given is straight up false or toxic, while other nuggets come from a good place but simply don't make sense for us.
Getting to a place where you gain clarity on which advice your parents gave that doesn't work can be illuminating, amusing, and sometimes downright depressing.
"They're only picking on you/being mean because they LIKE you."
No, no. They're just being a**holes.
"They're jealous of you."
That it’s rude to express any negative emotions.
