So I just finished my first exam of grade 10 it was german i did really well on it i think. I left feeling like a million bucks esecially since i learned right before i went into my exam i was goign in with a 98 i was so excited. And then i told my dad when he picked me up that i had a 98 right now in german and that i think idid really well on the exam and if i didn't i could still pass with a decent mark or a passing mark and then he tried to bring me down say ell you know you can't just rely on yur high marks blah blha blah. And i just tuned him out because he just annoys me. I try and share something good and i realize i can't rely on just high marks before exams but he didnt have to bring me down.
Then i thought i'd call my mom when i got home share th good news you know but what does se do she says oh well don't get to sure of yourself and it may be an almost perfect mark but its not perfect and yada yada yada. She just had to bring me down again. What ever happened to good job? Like i realize i shouldn't brag about the mark btu i was telling my parents because i thought they'd be proud.
It makes me feel like a 98 isn't even good enough for them. I try and get good marks for me so i can get into a good university but i wanna make my parents proud.
I just get frusterated when i can't make them proud.

My mom's the same way. If I

My mom's the same way. If I do well on something, anything, and I tell her she changes the subject. It's so frustrating!!

But since your parents didn't tell you, I'll tell you: You did a great job and I'm impressed that you have a 98%

And I'm sure that's not what you were looking for, but it's true. Someone needs to acknowledge it for you. :p

It's disappointing when

It's disappointing when parents aren't supportive, but it's good that you do what you do for reasons other than to please them. That means their lack of approval probably won't send you into some endless emotional quest for the approval of others. Those tend to make you very insecure and fall in love with all the wrong people (the voice of experience here). Just keep doing it for you and share the good news with those that will pat you on the back.
