It's weird, the last strip with Walky is suppose to be funny... but it almost made me cry.... What Walky said is EXACTLY how I felt for a long time when it came to my mother and grades, and still kind of do. That fear is very real to me, to the point where teachers thought my mother BEAT ME because I would panic so badly if I got so much as a B-. The fear of not being what your parent wants you to be and not loving you anymore because of it... For once I completely connect with Walky.
Ah ha ha ha ha yes. We are both there, in that zone. For most of my life, the greatest fear I possessed – other than, like, interacting with any and all other human beings at any time or in any place – was disappointing the parents. Their feelings about me was all four load-bearing pylons of my self esteem. It took…….. well, decades to try to unravel that. I say decades because that’s still ongoing.
anyway, i draw porn now
