I think it's just a newer way teens (mostly girls) deal with stuff, and many outgrow it.
I am not minimizing serious issues...it's just....so many have so many issues all the bloody time; it gets exhausting trying to coddle them.
They do things and whine so everyone can fawn around them and say it's okay, then they get okay and get sad no one is coddling them! I just have such small patience for martyrs.
I'm not sure why so many girls act this way.
3: My dad is constantly buying more life insurance for everyone and anyone. it's his way of ensuring we're taken care of, I'm sure.
Plus, with bro gone, he wants to make sure my nieces (and any kids I might have) are taken care of, too.
