Hello, This is my first post here. I've been looking for a place where I could get the best advice suited for my situation and I stumbled across you guys. I lost touch with my parents last year after I got jailed (1 month). I cut them off because I thought it would be the best for them. Ever since I can remember, I was the black sheep in family and brought them nothing but misery and worries. This came as a shock for them and I have no idea what's been happening for the last half a year. I miss them, I want to do what's right. I'm 21 and was always involved in some kind of criminal activities: stealing, weed dealing, various frauds. My parents are good people, they certainly made some mistakes but they didn't bring me to this place. It was all my fault, just to be clear. They were so sad when they found out I'm in jail. I broke their hearts. They always wanted me to become a decent man and raised me as such, they think they failed as parents. They kept telling me how I'm going to work for a family friend and what-not after I get out. I'll be as direct as possible - I don't want to work 9-5. Judge me all you want, I can't say I didn't try. I tried college but was either too stupid or my ADHD got in the way, I failed the first year. Then I worked a whole spectrum of jobs and hated each and every one of them. In my country, you can't find a job that pays more than 600$ a month, that barely covers for rent. I got severe back problems which makes finding jobs even harder. The places I worked in were all the same - lousy salary, dickhead boss, insomnia caused by depression every night. It's no way to live a life. I hated living of my parent's backs when unemployed. I'm doing great now and I have intentions of making a legal private business in a few years. I like to think that I'm still a good person. I don't spend money on stupid things, I even donate great sums to charities. My parents didn't want to hear none of that, for them I'm just a criminal, someone who steals and poisons others for their own profit. Can't say that isn't true, but I still have my moral compass with me. They see weed as a drug, something that destroys lives. This is the place where we divide into two worlds. I want to keep them in my life but I'm not going to stop doing what I am doing now. I thought about coming back after a few years when I get my life in order. I'm not sure how they'd accept me. They'd knew how I built that business. I was depressed for the last decade of my young life and I can finally say I'm cured. I'm happy for the first time in my life, but something is missing... What should I do? Should I wait a few years?
