Nobody likes me

By December 12, 2017No Comments

My parents hate me. My mom constantly comments on my hair (itโ€™s naturally curly) ,my acne, music taste, clothes, friends, grades, and art. We get into huge fights, and when I came out as bisexual my mom flipped, and screamed at me for about an hour, then grounded me for like three months. My dad had a stroke about 3 years ago and he doesnโ€™t even care anymore.

Also, people make me sick. I see people, even my friends, and I just… feel nausea? I donโ€™t know why. Theyโ€™re great people, and I love them, but now… I don’t know.

CONSIDER THIS:

  • Fighting with your parents can be very difficult. You are an incredibly strong person for going through what you are. You are a beautiful person, and deserve to be treated as such.
  • Perhaps you could sit down with your mom and a neutral third party and talk about the concerns you have. Let her know how her actions make you feel.
  • If you feel as though a conversation with her won’t work, try writing her a letter stating how you feel. You could even try writing one to your father as well.
  • You shouldn’t feel ashamed to need alone time from your friends. It’s normal to need a break from even the people that you love.
  • Perhaps you could find a trusted adult (teacher, guidance counselor, etc.) and confide in them. Sometimes just talking to someone can make you feel better.

HELP YOURSELF:

  • How would a conversation go with your mom if you sat down with her?
  • Would you feel better to talk about everything with a trusted adult?
  • What are some activities you can do to just take some time for yourself?
