Day 13

Choices?

I don't know what's wrong with me. My mom expects one thing & I want to do what makes me happy & my own person. I know I'm only 15, but this one decision I want to make on my own. I don't believe in god, but my mom has me going to confirmation classes. I'm giving up 16 Sundays & she knows I like to stay with my dad on Sundays when I'm with him. Now I have two things I have to give up for some stupid retreat. She doesn't understand me. I don't see the importance of doing this either. I just want out. I've made up my mind about who I am & who I'm not. I can't be one of those people who believes in a god & bases my happiness on him. I can be happy living my own way. I'm not one of those crazy teenagers either. I just want a chance to be my own person instead of doing what everyone tells me to do for once

    Mid teens is a dificult time...you're under 16 so unfortunately mum knows best and is responsible for your well being...still.

    You could try make a structured list showing what you want to do, showing why what she wants you to is preventing you achieving it, but don't forget your mum is still in charge!

    Mothers who care never do things for no good reason - sit down and have a conversation about the reasoning behind it and make sure you are respectful and polite. Your Mum might be able to hear what you have to say if it is not emotionally charged?
