for lack of where to move my comments from "who are you" thread....?
Sorry you are going thru shit ATM...just like Fresh Prince says: parents just don't understand. Sometimes, they forget what it was like to grow up. And, it sounds like they are over-protective...which really, isn't so bad if you think about it.... At least they care about you and love you. That's a whole lot more than some nasty parents out there like, for example, who would rather buy some drugs than feed their own kids.
You are gonna date who you wanna date, see who you wanna see, and do what you wanna do. They just need to learn to support your decisions whether they agree or not...it's a part of letting go of their "baby"
IMO, at your age, you shouldn't have to be dictated on what your parents say/tell you to do. However, since you are under their roof, I am sure "their rules" apply. I moved out at 17 and never went back. I just couldn't deal with my mom being in my business 24/7. I'm her only kid, she's over-protective, but she means well - and she's been my savior in a whole lot of situations that I never thought I'd have to deal with...like losing friends/boyfriends lives, workman's comp., legal shit, etc.
I have always been independent, never asked for money, never asked for the 'rents to buy me anything. Everything I have is because I earned it myself. I struggled paying for rent/college/car all at the same time as a teen to early 20's. I have been laid off and been able to come back from that. I eloped 3 years ago and moved from everything I once knew in CA to nothing in VA at the drop of a hat just for him. And that was one of my most crazy and unbeliveable experiences to date...but I don't regret it at all. My husband is an amazing guy and he is protective, but let's me do what I want to do because he trusts me. I can't complain =)
So screw what everyone else says/thinks...it's YOUR life and you only get ONE. Live it up!!!!
