What's necessary is honesty. You feel bad? Then feel bad. Say it. You feel good. Then feel good. Hug your parents. Hug them for two minutes. You dislike them five minutes after that hug, say so. Don't be so concerned about "ruining a good moment". I know earlier in the month I was castigating myself for being a dick, for my propensity to ruin nice moments. Well right now, I feel OK about it. The lightness it brings, when you're honest? Incomparable. You can be honest without being mean. Resulting long-term effect? You learn more about kindness. Trust me.
