what’s it called when you have friends but you’re still lonely
PE doesn’t stand for physical education. it stands for public embarrassment
now I feel dumb for even worrying about any of it, I just need to focus on myself
it’s interesting to realize/see my parents struggle with trying to talk to us in such a way that has nothing to do with lecturing and merely telling us what to do. my brothers and I met up with them at a steakhouse to have dinner and the second I sat down I just felt so uncomfortable and I wasn’t even hungry and then through the appetizers they started talking to my twelve year old brother about how he said he wanted to move out as soon as possible when he’s done with high school because he said he’s tired of them yelling at him and stuff and I can see what he means but at the same time it’s so fucking ridiculous he’s so lazy and all our parents tell him to do is take out the trash and remember to lock the door etc etc but he continuously forgets and gives them so much attitude and idk my dad went on some rant about surviving in the real world and told us we’d never survive in the real world and that we’re all so lazy and we need to appreciate the life we have now and everything I’ve heard a million times before and my fingers were shaking and I felt nauseous I’m just so tired of the same talk over and over and how do they expect me to even do everything they want me to do when they keep telling me I would not survive??? It just doesn’t make any sense to me, and even though I haven’t experienced it myself I know I’m capable of graduating high school and going to college and I never said it’d be easy but my parents have never told me that I could do it and that I’m capable they just expect me to and I know I’m not getting the best grades right now but I’m really trying and I know I can do better and I keep trying to convince myself that they’re saying and doing all these things because they care but I don’t know my dad even said “you guys can think whatever you want, that I’m not a good parent, but I think I’ve done what I needed to do as a parent: give you guys food and pay for everything and give you stuff..” and I was so dumbfounded like he obviously has done all that and I’m grateful but being a parent is so much more than that and it’s just so hard to achieve when all they do is focus on what I need to do to improve and I’m torn between wanting to be the perfect daughter and ignoring them and doing what I want to do.
