10 things to improve your overall relationship with your parents.

1. Communicate openly: Try to communicate openly and honestly with your parents about how you feel, what you need, and what you want. Make an effort to listen to their perspectives as well.

2. Spend quality time together: Spend quality time with your parents, doing things that you both enjoy. This can help strengthen your relationship and create positive memories.

3. Show appreciation: Show your parents that you appreciate them by thanking them for their love and support. Expressing gratitude can help build a deeper connection.

4. Be respectful: Show respect to your parents, even when you disagree. Avoid using disrespectful language or tone of voice.

5. Keep your promises: Keep your promises and commitments to your parents. This can help build trust and show that you are responsible.

6. Be patient: Be patient with your parents, especially if you have different viewpoints or lifestyles. Try to understand their perspective and be open to compromise.

7. Support their interests: Support your parents' interests and hobbies, even if they are not your own. This can help show that you care and are interested in their lives.

8. Share your life with them: Share your experiences, successes, and challenges with your parents. This can help them feel involved in your life and deepen your connection.

9. Show empathy: Show empathy and understanding towards your parents' struggles and challenges. Try to be there for them when they need support.

10. Forgive and move forward: If there have been conflicts or disagreements in the past, try to forgive and move forward. Holding onto grudges can damage your relationship and prevent you from building a stronger bond.

Having a relationship with your parent can be challenging because of the past but it can be so crucial to help move forward in your life. It can also be very rewarding to have a healthy relationship with them. If you ever need help with processing your own past, talk to a therapist.
