It seems only after we are moms can we see the decisions of our parents might have been only to protect us.
Your comment shows me, you are taking the cares of your parents for granted, do you not? See my comment below. In my opinion it is wonderful to have parents who protect and care. Do you have children?
I agree with BecauseIloveyou, be glad to have parents who love and protect you. There are many parents out there who do not give a ......................about their children. That is why many children seek attention elsewhere-at their own peril!
What caused your parents to be overprotective of you? Were you a sickly infant/child? Did you grow up in a dangerous neighbrhood? There must be some viable reasons why your parents were overprotected of and quite vigilant towards you?
They had stopped my Dad from having any contact with me, so felt like they had to permanently guard me to make sure he didn't get any opportunity to see me. Apparently, it was all in my best interests, but I've yet to discover how.
That is about the same here. My parents were agnostic/humanistic. As a little girl I remember asking my mom if God was real she said I cant tell you cause I don't know myself. I guess at least she was honest.
