My family has disowned me. After doing everything I can to be the best, it was never enough. I have a 3.18 GPA, 21 ACT score, Captain of the Marching Band, President of Guitar club, social outcast among my peers and worst of all I am never good enough for my parents. I am tired of trying to love them. They never have reciprocated the love back. After all these things, I had to work my way up to the positions in high school (which I am going to become an incoming senior) and because of my unpopularity, it wasn't easy becoming the head of TWO social groups. I had to be the best member of each one. Finally my parents got a divorce, which in a weird way, raised their standards for me. I'm lucky that I have a girlfriend and am about to begin to work in September. I know I'm young, but I'm gonna marry that girl and I'm gonna adopt a kid (hopefully!) and give that kid the chance that I never got. I want to raise them to be better than me in life. I want them to grow happy as well as my girlfriend to be happy. I figured it out: the key to growing up... is acceptance, love and never ending support, not an elitist lifestyle for your child. Of course I believe in discipline (I've fought off my fair share of bullies... and lost a majority of those fights too...) but I will never disown that kid.

Your fellow black sheep just sharing his life
