As expected, Mom was worried. What surprised me was my dad was worried also. He got on the phone and asked why I had missed the call. After I told them what happened that resulted in the lockdown, he got more worried. All this concern was due to the fact that they love me and want to see me home.
However, they were pestering me so much that I was getting frustrated. They were just on me ike I was a sixteen-year-old kid. I know that they love me more than anything and I want them to be concerned about me, but I don't need them to be overbearing. I'm already on tiptoes as it is. With their constant pressure without knowing prison survival, it's too overwhelming for me. I can't live in a fear 24/7. I can only live responsibly as I have been.
It is times like that that I realize that I need to have more patience. I have much more to learn about the unconditional love of a mother and father.
I love my parents!
