    It's hard to explain

    but it's true. My parents are just weird I don't know. Everybody is supposed to love their parents right? I know that they are the ones that put me on the Earth, but I really can't stand them some times. They don't understand me enough, they have a favorite child (it's not...

    My parents are always comparing me to my older

    sister and it gets so annoying. I get fine grades but it's never enough because they aren't as good as my sisters'. my mom always tells me I'm tearing the family apart but I don't do anything to make her say that!

    You think you can just butt in to my life

    and start rescheduling my doctors appointments!? Just because you want me to start opening up and being honest, more quickly. You know what? **** you. It's not going to work like that... You make everything worse! Just leave me Alone!! >=/

    I Fear Them

    They hit me. This has decreased over the years, but I often get a slap in my face. My mother and father are terribly old-fashioned, and probably think that it is the proper way to raise a child. I strongly disagree. It gave me nightmares, phobias and I became withdrawn and demure...

    and one day I hope to become a professional manga artist, but my parents get mad at me when they see me drawing, and they call it an "obsession" and that it's taking over my life. they even went as far as confiscating my equipment! I feel this is a violation of my rights!

    My mom is punishing me

    for being depressed... Since I'm depressed she's told me I'm not allowed any friends over and not allowed using the Internet... Since I have no job, I can't go out to do anything. And since my parents hate me, I might as well just live in the basement... Hooray for depression.
