Well, that's gone to hell

So, I was planning on a short but witty post tonight but that isn’t going to happen now.

I’m sure I’m not the only parent with a cross to bear but do they all resent it as much as I do? Or maybe they do but too polite to voice it.

I have a 29year old son who thinks the world owes him, I’m not sure how that happened when his 3 other siblings don’t think that way, can it really be nurture? I for one don’t believe it is, his father is the same but it was probably less noticeable as his parents business supported him so therefore he didn’t have to cope with the real world nor earn a living the way most of us do.

So after a call where I’ve yet again been asked for money because his life sucks, his job is shit because he didn’t get pay rise he expected so they’re taking the piss and therefore he’s walked out and now home is shit too (which means he’s taking it out on his partner and she’s fed up with him). He’ll probably end up being told to leave the house so on the street and I’ll be getting more sob calls. 

It makes me feel sick to my stomach, I don’t want to have to deal with it/him. I don’t have the money to give to him and even if I did, I’ve already learnt that it’s a bottomless pit and he doesn’t learn. I want to scream, I want him to leave me alone, I also want to say to him no ones life is perfect and it is what you make it yourself, if you’d put as much energy into sorting it out as you do whinging then it would be much easier. Now I’ll get off my soap box 😬 otherwise I’ll rant all night and it’ll solve nothing. Thank goodness the other kids are working on their futures and see the positives when the going gets a little tough 😍
