Leave Me Alone!!!

First of all, I am not talking about my amazing circle of friends.  I like you in my business, that's why I'm here.  You love and help me!!!  I love and help you right back.

I am a 51 year old woman.  I am proud to be this age.  I didn't get to this age by being a dumb a$$.  I have survived many horrible things in my life.  I am a good person with a strong, beautiful heart.  I do unfortunately have certain people who feel that they know better than I, how to live my life.  I don't get this!!!  They think they have the right to tell me, how to act, who I choose to be friends with, how to think, how to love, who to love.  It's getting really annoying!!!

I have felt trapped all of my life.  I have felt like this beautiful bird in a cage.  I want to get out and be free.  Some people have always felt that they know what's best for me.  I hate this.  I am who I am, take me or leave me.  If you don't like how I live my life, then just mind your own business and leave me alone!!!

Thank you theonlycatsmeow, thank you so much!!!

cmost, so sorry that your going through such a horrible time. You are in abad place. Do you have friends back where you used to live. Can't you move back and maybe your friends can help you until you get back on your feet. I hope things improve for you. You seem like a mature responsible person, I wish you and your son the best!!!

I am going through something very similar in my personal life. I have raised a son who is now 18 by myself and up until now lived on my own for many years. I recently moved into my father's condo in North Carolina. It was a big move for me. I quit a good job and gave away all of my furniture. To make a long story short he and has girlfriend have treated me very badly. They actually just got married yesterday. They are both in my business so bad I can't breathe. My son and I are constantly criticised by both of them and told what to do. It has been shear hell here since day 1. Anyhow reading your story where you talk about feelilng like a bird in a cage, that is the exact analogy I use to describe what it has been like living here. I have felt trapped like a caged animal. I have made my own decisions and paid my own bills for many years and consider myself very responsible. They treat my son and myself like we are complete morons and order us around constantly. I have no privacy and they even read my mail, listen to my phone conversations, make me get off the phone if I am on it more than 5 minutes and she stands over my shoulder while I am on the computer. You sound like such a strong woman. Any advice? If I go back to my home town I have nothing now I gave all my things away to move here in my dad's condo. He said this was my place then just 3 weeks after I left another state to come here he and his girlfriend tell me I need to go on a waiting list if I want to stay here and buy my own condo. They lied to me and have put me in a horrible position. Help anyone?

Yeah youwho, I hope they read it too. There is one person here who needs to read this. Then there's a few people on the outside world who need to know this also. Some of them know already, others will know soon. Thank you for commenting!!!
