“(Y/N), I know this isn’t the best time to talk about this, but…” Finn trailed off, still playing with your hair. You perked your head up off his chest, your eyes surely red and puffy. You looked at him, confused by his words. “What, Finn?” You set yourself up. You truly didn’t want any more bad things happening.

“Where do I even start?” Finn asked himself, heaving out a sigh.


You looked up at Finn with worried eyes. As the seconds ticked by and he continued to stay quiet, you only grew more anxious. You hoped deep inside your core that he wouldn’t be letting you in on bad news. You seriously hoped he wasn’t about to say something had changed with his job. Your mind was racing faster, thoughts that shouldn’t even be there approaching. When Finn stared into your eyes, you knew then you couldn’t read him like you usually could. Finn was an open book with each chapter spread out for your eyes to see. But tonight was different. HIs eyes were glazed over with intensity. His usually glistening blue eyes had shifted colors and were now a dark blue, but they were still just as gorgeous. The sea of blue captivated you, rocking you back and forth as though you were settled on the beach and the waves were crashing towards you.

toxic parents

it’s hard to prove abuse when there are no scars to show.

“when she guilts me into fulfilling her wishes. he won’t let me move too far from him because he might, just might, need me for something, sometime, someday. that time she was quick, almost too eager, to berate me in a simple argument. when he dominates every conversation we have, forcing his beliefs onto me and invalidating every opinion or personal experience of mine. when i wanted to express & resolve the pain she caused me and she fell silent, dismissing the conversation, sweeping it all under the rug. i hate asking them for favors as they do it out of future leverage and not love; they use money & my financial straits in an attempt to control me.“they know what’s best” and refuse to allow me to mature & create the life i desire. the times she made me her emotional dump, or when he made me ‘the reason’ why he had to hurt me with his words. they never accept responsibility for their decisions, disrespecting my boundaries in any, and every way, because they’re the parents and i belong to them. they meet any discussion with with manipulation tactics: rage, guilt tripping or denial when confronted. it’s never any accountability, just micro-aggressions and gas-lighting, “i don’t know what you mean”, “that’s not what i meant”, “you’re just sensitive”. taking full advantage of every opportunity to take a dig at me, blasting every failure and shortcoming to anyone that has an ear to hear, being my constant reminder that i will never be better than them. i feel like i’m competing with her, with him. the not so innocent “jokes” they tell about me, and then blame my anger on my “poor” sense of humor. it can’ never be them, it’s always me. instead of telling me how he feels, he creates an uneasy atmosphere being passive aggressive. i live life afraid of upsetting them, the threat of disowning me is always on the table to teach me to cave & discourage free thinking. them being in my life means more than me being happy. and as much as it drains me, i still make that weekly phone call out of child guilt & obligation, and not a show of love & affection. i just don’t want to be the bad, ungrateful child they seem to see me as. i honestly feel depleted in every way after every interaction involving them. i feel i have to protect myself from them, mentally, emotionally, physically, and i shouldn’t have to…”

life has taught me a few things…
our parents are humans. they, too, have had ruinous experiences in their early years which has influenced who they are today. they are not after you. it isn’t even about you. they are caught up in reenacting their childhood through you. how they treat you has nothing to do with you.

none of this means you have to participate. you do not have to stick around. it is okay to walk away. it is okay to let go. you don’t have to be their punching bag while they face their demons.

if you choose to keep them in your life, don’t be hard on yourself. do not regret the love, empathy and compassion you have towards your parents. rejoice in remaining light in heavy situations. no one wants to give up on their parents. and if you happen to get hurt again, forgive yourself. make sure you forgive yourself. you did the best you could.
you cannot make people feel what they do not want to feel. their feelings are not your responsibility. if you can make them feel an emotion, it is because they already resonated with that frequency. if anyone argues that you are responsible for their feelings, or they are responsible for yours, they are crossing an emotional boundary. do not accept that. respectfully, assert yourself as an individual to place that boundary between you and them. you are your own being, and so are they.

for those who still live at home, recognize the cycle and its triggers. you can only stop what you understand. the goal is to mitigate the risk of negative interactions and protecting yourself, not to prove that you are right and they are wrong. this will only exhaust you, and feed them. more importantly, when i understood their triggers, it created that more much room for peace for myself, even if temporal.

before you invite them back into your story line, ask yourself questions like: “am i willing to sacrifice my own health and happiness for them?” “am i willing to sacrifice my relationship with my partner for them?” “am i willing to sacrifice my job, income or my finances for them?” “am i okay knowing that for the rest of my life they’ll call my job multiple times a day, or show up to my house at any time unannounced, refusing to acknowledge the boundaries i set in place?” “can i have a relationship with them for the rest of my life if i knew they would never change?” these questions are not meant to force you into making a decision, but to help you gain a full perspective before you do make a decision.

minimize all arguing, as this is a direct result of reacting. if you can, walk away. this isn’t for them, but for you. the moment you react this way you are now officially sucked back in the cycle, which was what they wanted. as a result, you will end up with your energy depleted, while they feed on your frustration. they may never change how they feel, and you might not ever change how you feel; accept that for the time being and disengage. you’ll need all the energy you have. this is about conserving until it’s time to fight the right battle. if you do decide to respond, remember to usher in love with it. you’re the alchemist. you can change the tone. respond. don’t react.

talk to someone. create a safe space. journal your encounters with your parents: how did you feel? could you have handled your interaction with them any better? talk to someone, whether it be friends, family or a counselor. you might not be able to change your environment but changing your perspective works just as well. conversations invite change, but if you spend the rest of your life with bottled-up unresolved issues, you will end up replaying your childhood through everyone, including yours kids. most importantly, create a safe space for yourself. whether physical or in your mind, know that you have a space you can run to that no one can penetrate without your permission.
your parent(s) may not cooperate and that’s completely fine. do not force them. it will be hard for them to accept that you are refusing be their target after so many years of blind appeasement. with time they might adjust, or they might not. once again, and i cannot stress this enough, you are not responsible for them. you can only do what is best for you. this is about you, your growth, and your boundaries. it is not about getting them to see their destructive ways. you are all you need. i hope this helps. i love you.

okay honestly I didn't like the new easter baking vid that much? the humor felt very forced and it seems like they were trying too hard to replicate the style of their previous baking videos (especially the halloween one). it just seemed a bit off to me.

Ahh I always get irrationally frustrated when I don’t love a Dan and Phil video, I don’t know why. I just felt like it was a repeat of previous videos. And the baking itself was terrible omg I was cringing so hard at the close ups 😅. Though I’m happy to see that a lot of people really enjoyed it! I hope you are well

i actually very much agree with this! i mean i’ll never actually dislike something dnp make especially when it involves them mostly dicking around and messing with each other but i definitely found this to be less enjoyable than past bakes and i think both of you perfectly identified one of the central reasons why. dnp definitely seem to have settled on a certain set of jokes and humor for these videos that they default to (e.g. throwing the ingredients when they introduce them and assigning questionable sourcing to the ingredients [like right from a fairy’s teat or whatever], hitting each other with things, feeding each other, dan calling phil dad/daddy, both of them making fun of their own baking ability, etc.) and even if many of those things are natural or things that they would do anyway if they were baking and there wasn’t a camera on them, the fact that they seem to rely on those forms of humor in increasingly exaggerated ways with each new baking vid generally make them less entertaining as jokes, and also suggests a degree of self-awareness that detracts from the enjoyability of the vid. what i mean is that it feels a lot less like dnp are deliriously cooking in their kitchen in the middle of the night and having lots of fun as they laugh and giggle together, and much more like dnp knew they had to get this video done and wanted to make sure it was entertaining so they included some of the same types of jokes and noteworthy moments that they know people have focused on and loved in the past. i do think they warmed up as the video went on but man the first few mins when they’re introducing the vid and transforming into their pastel personas were not even just overly performance-y but honestly very nearly painful to watch–-for me, both their humor and their rhythm and maybe even their chemistry kind of felt forced, like they’d lost the footing of how to open a video and actually sound excited about it. and in general, i didn’t really laugh aloud during this vid, or feel warm inside as i watched them have fun, but mostly felt very aware that i was watching dnp film a video rather than dnp bake in their kitchen. 

i want to be very clear that that isn’t even really a bad thing. i actually think we’ve been super spoiled by videos in the last few months on dapg that have ushered in a really lovely norm for them regarding their performance styles. they’ve become super relaxed in a number of ways, their humor is very organic and unforced, they complement each other more than ever and bounce off each other in an uplifting way rather than relying on old shticks of dan making fun of phil to drive the “comedic” nature of their content. i honestly think the reason this vid feels so weird is bc it’s a bit of a step back from that recent norm. i also don’t want anyone to misinterpret any part of this as an argument for dnp manufacturing content that they think people want to see bc of any malicious ulterior motive. if i get a single message about fan service i will scream. there’s a difference, as i’ve written eight million times before, between lying and manipulating an audience in order to make a profit and exaggerating jokes/humor in order to provide entertainment. dnp definitely do the latter bc that’s their job. they’re entertainers, and some vids will necessarily involve more acting/exaggeration than others depending on any number of factors (their energy levels, their stress or exhaustion due to pre-filming a bunch of videos in a row, anything else happening in their lives that we don’t know about, etc.) 

it also doesn’t mean there weren’t great and funny things about this vid!!! there were many moments that i did enjoy and that stood out to me. i might do another post about those moments after i rewatch it, but a couple that i’m thinking about right now are both of them voice acting the bunnies on the wall with thick northern accents, dan asking phil to come back into the kitchen and scaring him with the bunny costume, just all of the set decor in general bc it’s v pastel and cute, phil demonstrating how big dan’s overalls are and then making that mpreg fic comment bc it felt like it was just genuinely what his mind went to and that is .. .interesting tbh, and dan whining phil’s name in that high pitched way every time phil spilled something or messed up bc every single one felt like a perf example of that special sort of fond exasperation he saves for phil alone. 

overall, an alright vid, nothing rly bad but also nothing all that exciting to me, and i think that’s okay!!!!!!
