My Parents And Myself
Carla Thomson

You know what. Iím sorry that you donít think you can trust me. I do what I think is right for myself. I make boundaries and limits and I never cross them, never (even ask my friends)! You think my actions should be different, and you donít have as much trust in me. But let me tell you, you can trust me. One of the reasons why I donít tell you everything that is going on in my life is because Iím a teenager. And do you know how weird it is to talk to you guys about anything that goes on in my social life? Anything or everything that I tell, you end up telling someone else and/or someone over hears. Then I never hear the end of it. I have a very high self-esteem and I always do what I believe is best, (even if you may not agree that thatís really whatís best for me). You try to control my every move, youíre always watching me and punishing me for things that are truly not wrong in my mind. Yes we have different ways of doing things, but I wish you could come to understand me more. You think Iím a rebel, you think Iím going down the wrong path. You think you know me, but you never take the time to see that you donít. You also think that Iím going through the same things that you went through when you were my age. But we are totally different people, and I know for sure that what Iím going through isnít what you went through. Try being in my shoes, with my mined, my beliefs, my emotions, and my friends and enemies. Try going through what Iíve gone through in my past and end up as well as I turned out.
My parents divorced when I was about 3 or 4. Mom moved in with our neighbor and had his child. A while after, mom moved in with her parents again. Us kids did not understand all that was going on. David and I went back and forth from Mom and Dad. Dad stayed single for quite some time, just trying to be the best dad that he knew how to be. Mom was trying to find out who she actually was. Long story short, Mom is now with her 4th and hopefully last husband. When married to 2 of her ex husbands they tried to kill her, more than once, and they both had problems with drugs.
When I was in the 3rd grade my dad married a woman whom I never really liked. I was happy for my dad, so for a long time I pretended that I really did like her. The 4th grade my dad and my step mom pulled David, my stepbrother and myself out of school to be ďhome-schooled.Ē At this point and time I only saw my mom 2 days a week. My step mom had no idea of what she was supposedly doing. The first year we were ďhome-schooledĒ we did absolutely nothing concerning schoolwork and nothing educational. The next 3 years, my brothers and I did schoolwork that I already knew how to do in the 3rd grade. A lot had gone on in this time. Our step mom treated us like her personal slaves, while all she did was sit at the computer, watch TV, complain about how fat she was (she is the skinniest person I know), and bitch at us, making us feel like we were nothing but a piece of shit. Her and my dad would fight all the time, always yelling. She was and is so manipulative.
Finally my brother David and I couldnít stand it at that place anymore, and moved into our momís house. She now was living in a safe environment. The 8th grade I finally went back to school with a 3rd grade education in every subject. I learned so much in that year. By the end of the year I knew about as much as an average kid my age. I moved on to the 9th grade, I couldnít believe that Iíd actually be in high school. Itís now summer and I donít know exactly if Iíll be considered a sophomore in this coming school year, but I did well considering.
I only wrote this story in short because it is still painful to talk or think about my past. And my past will continue to effect me for the rest of my life. In more ways than anyone could begin to know or understand. I wish to write more about this subject ďMy LifeĒ when Iím a little bit older. An autobiography to be published. But I donít know what the future will hold.
But back to what I was saying before, about my parents living in my shoes. They wouldnít know what to do, and they should be glade that I finally have friends and a life. That I donít do drugs, I donít smoke or drink and I donít have sex. They say Iím such a rebel, when I do nothing wrong. My brother does so much and gets away with it. And me, I do nothing and get grounded 2 weeks out of my summer, on top of them saying I canít have a boyfriend until Iím 16. They think Iím the same little girl that knew nothing about guys, the world and everything else out there, which they saw last year in the 8th grade. If you ask some of my best of friends or even people I donít know all that well. They will all tell you, that Iím far from a rebel, that Iím one of the more trustworthy people they know and I do know whatís going on. That Iím not stupid, and that I can handle a relationship better than a lot of people they know, who are even older than myself. Iíve had people tell me and my closest friends these very things.
No matter how much I try to explain it my mom will never begin to understand why itís so hard for me, when my step dad has the final say over me. Be it their blessing or a punishment. My parents are so afraid that Iím gonna screw up. They wonít let me live my own life and enjoy it. They feel like they have to control everything that I do. I know that I have a strong head on my shoulders and I never fall into pressure. But they donít want to see it. They donít want to see me grow up. They want me to stay a little girl forever, and thatís not gonna happen.
You say you canít trust me. But in truth the one that canít be trusted is you. Whenever I tell you something about myself, you look at me differently after words. And when you say, ďIíll never tell a sole.Ē Guess what you do within a week. Everyone ends up knowing things that I had never told anyone else. Then you wonder why I never talk to you, and make assumptions. You start wondering what kind of trouble Iím getting into, when Iím just trying to have a normal day. You say everything will be ok, then you make everything fall apart.
When you ground me, you always wonder why Iím so depressed. Well maybe itís because; you wonít let me see anyone outside this little world you call a house. I have nowhere to go nothing to do for weeks, stuck in my room only thinking about how unjust this punishment is. Especially since I did nothing wrong to disserve this.
