How do I manage my anger and frustration towards my parents because they keep cribbing about everything that I do whether right or wrong. They keep saying hurtful things to me? ?

Hi, the only way to understand why your parents keep 'cribbing' about everything you do - is to understand what is happening. Due to the age difference between you and your parents there is a generation gap in thinking processes. The way your parents and you see things will be completely different. What you need to understand here is - ultimately your parents want to see you happy, successful, well-settled in life, even you wish the same for yourself. The problem is that they do not approve of the way you are going about building your life (obviously they have their set views ) and think you will just blunder your way in your attempts and in the process lose good opportunities. One way is to - chart out a precise plan of how you intend to go about your life (and dreams). Once you are clear how you are going to proceed - you need to communicate this to your parents in detail - highlighting any alternate plans of action if needed. If you are convinced about how you will be going about your life (i.e. believe in yourself strongly) - you will be able to confidently share it with them. Be open to any suggestions they may offer - after all they do have more life experience that you. UNDERSTAND - you and your parents want the same thing - your happiness/success in life. If you and your parents can work together on this - that will be absolutely great. If you feel the need to talk to a counsellor please do so - it will help.
