Unemployed man resents his parents for having “spoiled” him after a gift of $ 100,000
A man unemployed for three years admitted to resent his parents for having “spoiled” him.
In a 35-tweet thread, Qiaochu Yuan said he had taken an “average dose of acid” a few days before and explained his life situation on Twitter.
He said he had written “several hours in a row” and admitted “some things to myself, mainly about the money”.
“Let’s start here: last August my mom gave me $ 100,000 for my birthday. I was angry with him for that and also suppressed the resentment, ”he tweeted.
Yuan went on to say that in January he had thought of “guessing things about money and career” – but avoided the subject, “sometimes having feelings about it but not very satisfactorily.” He added: “So I procrastinated on my taxes.”
“I procrastinated on my taxes so hard that I was forced to spend the last day before the deadline mainly having feelings about taxes as to why I had procrastinated so hard,” he said. declared.
“What happened was, ‘I don’t want to know how much money I have or earn, so I can’t tell my parents.’

Yuan then tweeted that the reason “you are alive right now and not starving on the streets even though you haven’t had a job for three years is because your parents are sending you money because they love you “.
He later had the revelation that he was “literally Harry f ****** Potter”.
“I am still protected by my parents’ love in the form of money,” Yuan said.
Continually running out of money had been the biggest consequence of having to explain it to his parents, Yuan continued.
He revealed that his parents had already spent $ 175,000 “because they wanted me to have a good education and a good life.”
Yuan’s parents paid all of his tuition fees to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The man admitted he was tweeting “from a privileged position” and then criticized his parents for looking after him financially instead of “emotionally”.
“My parents took care of me materially at the expense of taking care of me emotionally,” Yuan tweeted.
“It took me until this trip to feel a little bit of the money they spent as an act of caring.”
Yuan understands why his parents did what they did, but complained about being “incredibly protected in so many ways.”
“They never even made me do chores. I was very spoiled and in retrospect it was not good for me, ”he said.
Yuan concluded by saying that his father told him that he was “looking at his retirement because he was worried” about him.
Yuan’s tweets drew negative reactions from other Twitter users, claiming he was ungrateful and spoiled.
Many Twitter users criticized Yuan and called him ungrateful or spoiled, asking him to have “some self-awareness.”
I don’t understand the resentment towards your parents. They love you so much that they delay retirement and give you large sums of money. I find it hard to understand why you feel largely negative about this.

That’s a lot of words to say “I’m a spoiled rich kid who didn’t want to help a homeless woman because she didn’t express her sadness enough that I felt like she didn’t. has not ripped off. “
Forgive me for not feeling a little bad for your real “difficult” life. 🙄

It was so hard to read as a non-cash person. My parents often ask me for money to feed my little siblings as I try to survive without a living wage. I’m glad you found inner peace or whatever, but for goodness sake have some self-awareness.

By any stretch of the imagination, this could not be considered a sad story. Oddly, monstrously disconnected.
