I have never had a fear of judgement from my parents because honestly their judgement or approval mean nothing to me anymore. These days I don't bother to ask those types of questions because I'm suspicious about the honesty of their responses. Unfortunately, I've had to stop entertaining the notion that I might ever have the answers to the questions I have about my childhood and their parenting. Thankfully, it has left me with more energy and passion to explore the things that I can control/understand today.
