Report Is it wrong to accept support from relatives I despise? in Psychology and Self Improvement Posted May 22, 2010 · Edited May 22, 2010 by cliveandrews Why do you ask? Because I believe people should be independent? Yes, that would be part of the objectivist creed.. Also, does it confuse you when I believe a 26-year old who lives at home and whines about his parents needs help? Did you read the part where I said I have a seriously debilitating, possibly life-threatening physical illness which severely limits my choice of action and has made it almost impossible to find suitable work? And did it not occur to you that living with my parents is not my preferred arrangement, but one that has been forced on me by circumstances beyond my control? Or are you satisfied with rotten distortions like the implication that I'm just too stupid and lazy to move out of my mom's basement?
