I can understand butting heads with your folks. I just butted heads with my dad the other day after he made grandma cry. When I moved back in with them after college while looking for a job, we had to all adjust. I was used to coming and going as I pleased, and they still thought I was their little boy. It came to a head one morning when I came in at 4am and they were waiting up. Once we had a conversation about what our boundaries were, things were much better. It was all about me respecting them and them respecting me.
It goes both ways and sometimes they seem to forget that.

yeah, i can relate to this
right now, bcz I’m right here, after 2 years.
I’ve dwelled in here for 27days and things get rotten before my planned leaving date.
and I did stand up to dad, things became tense and disconnect again. maybe I was over assertive until couldn’t cover my burning fury when I felt being tapped on my soft part whenever I was gentle, helpful and off-guard. and, it’s from my own family. how shocking!
