You know what sucks?

People.

You know what also sucks?

People who use you.

I am a teenager and I despise every part of it.

I can’t go where I want. I can’t do what I want. I’m just stuck here. Suck to adhere to rules and principles set in my household. I have to wear what my mom wants me to wear. I have to do what my parents want me to do. I feel so powerless. I DON’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING!! I AM SO TIRED. I hate this. I feel awful. I feel sick and I’m so afraid to tell people and I don’t know what to say. I hate the way my mom treats me. I hate how she feels entitled to my love and my space and my time at all times. Everything is about her.

“You hate me don’t you?” She says in a broken sickly sad voice like a dying puppy. NO! I DON’T HATE YOU! THAT’S NOT THE POINT! STOP MAKING THAT THE POINT! IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU! IT WAS NEVER ABOUT YOU.

Everything I do is my fault it seems. I….I just don’t feel good right now.
