Re: Being Upset
Thanks for sharing @Tdozer. I can definitely relate to that. My parents separated when I was 8, and every time they got with a new partner my whole world and everything that was expected of me changed. I hated it.
I agree that getting a job on top of everything you're dealing with is probably asking a bit too much right now. And man, I can especially relate to being called lazy and told I was doing nothing when in reality, I was just too sad to do anything and all of the little things I was doing were going completely unnoticed. It made me so mad being told I was doing nothing when I was doing everything I could just to not fall apart.
It hurts when a parent takes someone else's side against you, especially when it's someone who's not even really family. It feels like they're choosing some stranger over you, which is pretty awful.
It's tough at your age, since you're basically at the mercy of of your parents... but you're so close to finishing school, and that's when life really begins. Try to keep in mind that there are better days ahead, where whatever (edited out name) thinks is really not your problem
