I really wish I could enjoy being around my parents but I simply don't. The older I get, the less tolerance I have for their behavior and often narrow, sometimes even bigoted, view of the world. They always want me to visit them on the weekend, but the visits amount to nothing but listening to them go off on politics as they try to hammer their "correct" opinions into my head. I'm in my mid-thirties, and quite frankly, I'm sick of it. Life is too short for being angry at the world. When I try to excuse myself-- I have no desire to join their debates-- they immediately jump on me, saying, "aha, see you know we're right, so you're uncomfortable, that's why you're leaving and avoiding the discussion!"
