Sounds like me when I was a kid. I don't have an answer, because everyone is different. I know why I did a lot of the things I did, but it's a
reasonable assumption that most of the reasons I had are not the reasons "Micheal" has. Even so, I can understand both positions. Micheal most
likely doesn't understand certain emotional standpoints, and so he simply ignores them and appeals with whatever expressions he deems most suitable.
Best I can tell you.
I can say that the mother has a definite point. I could so easily have ended up in a number of highly unpleasant places (and a couple of time, I did)
but fortunately, I was able to come to terms with myself and develop a fairly healthy personality with a few quirks that I have accepted as just being
me. And I have accepted that if anyone doesn't like it, they are perfectly free to go directly to the first dreadfully unpalatable location they can
think of. When you are young and inexperienced and woefully naive, however...that's when you need help. Lots of it. People who understand where
you're coming from, who know what you've been through, know what you're feeling, and have successfully overcome it.
And unfortunately, because a lot of people don't want to admit that such strange personalities exist, they decide to either drug it or lock it away.
They don't want to deal with it. They want to pretend that society is easily fixed. And because of that, we have people who pretend to be okay until
they decide they're done playing the game and they just mow down everyone who ever wronged them, whether those wrongs be real or imagined. At that
point, it doesn't matter. They're going away, and they want to leave a message before they do.
It could so easily have been me, so many times. I didn't do it, so I can't say I understand perfectly. But I can understand what may have lead to
it. And I can say, quite certainly, that if no help is given, then trouble is absolutely asked for.
Better to get the worst out of the way before it comes back to haunt you - with a semiautomatic.
