|Invalidation of a teenage girl in India
Im a 15-year-old girl and Im under a lot
of stress and pressure. With my boards coming up, all
these aunties add to the high pressure. But
the reason Im under so much pressure is my mother.
I am sure that she loves me, but I just dont
understand why she doesnt show it in other ways
that I see my friends moms. I always pushed it out
of my mind, but it has gotten to a point where she is the
only person in my life who can make me cry so hard and
make me feel as worthless as I do. Growing up, I was
never one of the kids who told their mom everything. I
was always so jealous when my friends said they told
their moms everything, even about boys. Whenever I did
try to talk to her, we would just end up fi ghting even
more. Its reached a point where I think about
running away from home. I feel like my father and my
sister are the only ones at home who support me in
everything I do. Recently, I noticed that everything my
mother says is either criticism about me or an insult. I
fi nd this very diffi cult to cope with as we have a fi
ght every second minute and I just feel like shell
never understand me. Ive tried talking to her but I
feel like shes not openminded. I fi nd this very
diffi cult to cope with as it gives me added pressure.
Im tired of crying. Over the years, Ive
accepted that Im luckier than most people. I have
always been grateful that my dad loves me and treats me
with respect, and is always proud of me and wants to talk
to me. I love my mother but I dont think she cares
enough for me. My dad never knows who to side with. I
just cant understand if she loves me and if she
does, why cant she respect me? Sad Senorita
|Paul: i feel pain from Vitoria (in Sao Sepe) playing
league of legends instead of talking to us
Jenny: Oh, maybe it just makes her happy so she wants to spend time doing it
Then Paul wrote to another friend, "it hurt that she said that. i felt no empathy from her for my pain. i felt no understanding of why it hurts me. so I feel even more pain now"
