I am tired of my family thinking I don't know any thing.
So it starts like this...
My older sister is having so bodily function problem(nothing serious) and she needs to drink more water. When my parents come to ask her how much water did you drink today. She made some excuse (saying I drank out of the foucet) but my parents wanted to know in exact cups of water. While I was over hearing their conversation (for some reason [I probably know why] my father was yelling as if she had done something wrong but she hadn't [the two have a bad history together as it is]) I joined in on the conversation talking about how much water we are suppose to drink.
I said most (if only a little) of our water comes through food. Since apparently my parents think I know notihing they assume from nowhere I intended "I don't need to drink water I get it all from my food". I didn't mean that, and then they started that "I have papers and I've seen on TV shows, I've read it in books" dialogue to prove a statement that I wasn't even arguing against. After all the arguing finished I didn't bother to respond back as I soon realized it had nothing to do with the right answer or me being wrong. Instead I think it was about my parents insecurities.
I'll say I do know a fair amount of knowledge which in return makes it difficult for my parents to teach me things. Consequently I suppose maybe by contending with me and assuming that I don't know what I'm talking about (even though I do have sources both internet wise, and books and television as well to prove my statement) they feel their our my parents (by society standards). Sometimes I wish my parents weren't so weak, I hate to see their vulnerablities.
