‘I resent my parents for spoiling me and handing over £73,000 on my birthday’
21st July 2021

A bloke went on an epic Twitter rant this week explaining that he resents him mum for spoiling him and giving him £73,181.

Qiaochu Yuan reportedly took a “medium dose” of the illegal drug LSD which caused him to have a revelation about himself.

The rich youngster realised that he was “spoiled” – and he wasn’t happy about it.

He explained on the Twitter thread that him mother gave him the $100,000 (£73,181) as a birthday gift, but noted: "I resented her for this and also suppressed the resentment."

In a huge 35-part tweet the bloke explained the realisations he’d had about his life while staying in an Airbnb.

In the tweet, Yuan, who has the handle 'Magnificent Adult Baby', wrote about how he found himself at a dead end after moving out of a shared house and feeling like he didn't belong.

He said: "Towards the end of my stay I decided to take a medium dose of acid to see if it could get me unstuck on stuff and hoo boy.

"I wrote for maybe 12 hours straight and it eventually turned into a sort of spontaneous dialogue between the person I am on acid and the person I am sober; acidQC and soberQC.

"AcidQC told me a bunch of things I needed to hear but didn't particularly want to. He told me 'you've been feeling social pressure to pretend like you have a 'financial health' that is entirely about your savings and your income and it's just not true at all'.

"The truth is that if you ran out of money your parents would send you more because they love you.

"The truth is that your finances aren't separate from your parents' finances and they never have been. You resent your mum for sending you $100,000 because she forcefully reminded you of this fact."

He continued: "You feel like you were told by society that the way making a living works is that you do labour and are paid a fair wage for your labour and that's how you earn the right to exist and be a member of society, you feel guilty because you've never done this.

"But that's just not true, you actually do not need to earn the right to exist and you never have. The reason you're alive right now and not starving to death on the street even though you haven't had a job in three years is because your parents send you money because they love you.

"And I was like, 'oh my God, I'm literally Harry f*****g Potter'. I'm literally being protected by my parent's love in the form of money and I always have been, how incredibly embarrassing."

In other statements he explained that his parents gave him a gift of £128,121 for education and expenses including his university tuition.

He said they did this because "they wanted me to have a good education and a good life", and added that he was "very spoiled, and in retrospect, it wasn’t good for me".

However, Qiaochu was quickly blasted online for his comments.

One user wrote: "This thread might have been better to share with a therapist, notTwitter."

And another added: "Your father is putting off retirement because he thinks he’ll need to keep subsidising your lifestyle in chunks of tens of thousands of dollars. Let that sink in."

While a third noted: "Millions of people live the same way. It’s terrifying and exhausting, and if someone gave me 1/100 of what you got for free I would shower them in gratitude."
