is when parents wont let their kid stretch their ears or dye their hair or get piercings etc just because they don’t like it. I’m sorry but, last time i checked your kid is its own person with their own personality and style. just because you don’t like something like that, doesn’t mean your kid shouldn’t be allowed to have them.
we’re always told to ‘be ourselves’ but tbh, were not allowed to express ourselves.
“Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.”—Ralph Marston (via thewastedgeneration)
