I Don't Hate My Family..but I Hate My Home Life

Hi, I'm 15 years old, and I love going out and making friends. I come from a very strict Chinese family. My GPA is over 4.0. I'm serious about piano, soccer, and oil painting. Everybody says I'm good at everything. Everybody says my life is perfect.

The thing is, my life isn't perfect. I'm not good at even being myself. Me, myself, and I clash. Who I am and who I should be are completely contradictory images. Where I am and where I want to be are equally contrasting places.


My parents are the biggest micromanagers in the entire world.

.....I'm forced to go upstairs at 10 pm everyday, whether or not I just got home from practice at 8 and have 3 massive tests tomorrow.

.....Every electronic has a password on it. I'm really not a bad kid. I don't watch p+rn, I don't go in random chatrooms, and I respect people. Why does my laptop have a password that I DON'T KNOW on it? Why does it shut down at 9pm?

......I'm not allowed to go out...I have to study every weekend. This is probably the most painful because I'm naturally extremely outgoing. I THIRST to leave the home.

Living in my house is worse than living at jail, because I'm monitored and managed, but the biggest crime I ever did was exist.

Hi, I'm 15 years old, and I hate my home life.
