The older I get I start to realize that African parents have more cons than pros. I know so many Africans (teens, young adults) who are emotionally broken because of their parents. There's no freedom, not even to choose what career you want to do for the rest of your life. African parents are so forceful and everything they do are so unreasonable. We all just walk around happy and hyper knowing that deep down life at home is not even good. I always used to hate coming home after a church convention or something. I never got home sick and I don't think I'll ever be home sick. African parents do not know a proper way to love. I just wanna live, make mistakes, be able to express myself freely, and just explore. That obviously can't happen. And let's not even talk about how mental illness and sometimes physical illness is ignored in African homes. God I hope I don't grow up to be like that. I pray I don't.
