    Luckily they never put me in a box like that. Nothing was "expected" of me so I'm doing ok!

    (One of them was an ISTJ - maybe I just ignored them now that I think about it.....)

My parents way of trying to get you to go along was to beat your self-confidence down until the only way you thought you could succeed was by doing things their way. I was resilient though and went my own way.

    My parents were always proud of me AFTER I accomplished something, but until then it was "you'll never make it/that's just crazy/etc." There's only ONE thing in my life that I've done that my parents have been proud of me for from the get-go. Unfortunately, my dad passed before he could see it come to fruition.
    Phoenix, if I may know, what is that "one" thing that your parents have been proud of you?
    so, does things change, after you dad has passed? (btw, i'm sorry to hear that)
