Mentally Stressed by Parents
I was born and raised in a conservative family. Since childhood, I have believed that we should respect our parents and obey whatever we say. However, when I grew up, I realized that my parents consider me an inferior person. They have made me an introvert by not letting me speak anything, by mocking me, and by making fun of me. When I visited them after spending a semester at UC Berkeley, they did not ask me about my university life at all. Instead, they kept talking about themselves and isolated me from the family. Hence, I have observed that they probably don't need me, but I have honestly no idea what to do in this situation.
