Hi guys. Things are looking up a tiny bit, so I figured I'd take advantage of it and use the time to be online. Hopefully things will continue to get better from here on out and not take the downward route again. I know it will eventually, but...I'm thinking positively. Trying to.
Anyway, I just wanted to write this to let some of my younger watchers and friends know that...if you have decent parents who love you, who respect you, and who support you, please don't let some stupid reason keep you from having a good relationship with them. Don't let shit like this...: They took my phone away!They won't let me talk to my gf/bf!They don't like the way I dress and do my hair!They don't let me get away with all the stupid shit that could get me in trouble!
...ruin the relationship you have or could have with them. You COULD have parents who don't give a shit. You COULD have parents who don't love you. You COULD have parents that don't support you in anything. But if you have a mom and dad who give you all that they can and try their best to make life good for you, please don't be a little asshole and kill that by ever hating them for a reason as dumb as the ones above. It's something you really don't want to take for granted. If you have a stable home life and parents that are decent and good, you have a rarity that many kids don't get this day and age with all the bullshit out there in the world.
It pisses me off when kids nowadays say how much they hate their parents just because they don't dish out shitty material possessions and money to them every time they ask for it. There are sooo many more things that matter than that new phone or iPad, you know. Consider your parents' needs as much as they consider yours, because if something happens to them, all you're going to have is that damn phone or iPad and it's not going to matter because the last thing you said to your mom or dad was 'I hate you.'
Of course, not all parents are good, and if your mom and dad abuse you in any way, whether it be physically, emotionally, mentally, or verbally, you have a right to feel the way you feel towards them. I really feel for all the people out there who don't know what it feels like to have good parents. Some kids have to deal with their parents coming home drunk and beating the shit out of them. Some kids have to go without necessities because their parents spend all their money on drugs. Some kids have to feel worthless every day because their parents don't care about them enough to say "Hey. You're a good kid. I love you." So the next time you're sitting on your bed, angry and sulking because you didn't get that material thing or your dad didn't like your rainbow hair and piercings, think about that. (I'm not saying any particular one of you is like this, I'm just speaking to the general public here.)
Yes, I get very, very angry at my mother and father. Every day. But I guarantee you it's not because they wouldn't let me buy that super cute shirt. I can buy my own shit, thank you. It's time some kids learned to do that, as well, instead of expecting mommy and daddy to pay for everything.
Also, think about the shit you do and why your parents may not want you to do it before you bitch at them for it:
Maybe your dad doesn't want you to get into drugs because you'll ruin your life and become an addict.
You're 14. Maybe your mom doesn't want you wearing that outfit and plastering ten pounds of makeup on your face because she doesn't want you to look like a child whore.
Maybe your parents want you to make something of your life, and that's why they ride your ass about your grades. Education is important, whether you want to believe it or not.
Maybe your parents don't want you hanging out with that older boy because he'll end up hurting you and getting you acquainted with the wrong crowds.
Think. That pinkish grey swirly thing in your skull? Use it.
I know I sound like the old woman on the corner who shakes her cane at you and tells long, boring stories and lectures, but I'm just standing up for all the good parents out there.
