So my dad thinks I am a massive disappointment…why you may wonder…all because I didn’t go to the uni he wanted me to go to and because I continue to make choices that are different to what he believes is right. I am not saying I am the perfect kid, I mean, I’ve had my rebellious phases, I’ve had the occasional boyfriend who wasn’t right for me, I am stubborn…so I guess I am not the perfect kid…I am a normal kid…. who deserves someone to be proud of her. I’ve always got good grades, I am going to graduate from uni in a few months and I want to do a masters and yet again, none of that counts for anything, not even the fact that the uni I go to is one of the best in the country. Seriously, when is he going to get tired of looking at me with such dissatisfaction, sadness, and pity even…as if he can see nothing but my wasted potential, I can even hear it in his voice. What parents need to realise is that their children are not miniature copies of them who want exactly the same things they do. I am 21, I will probably make lots of mistakes, I will probably continue to drink a bit too much and cross the line every once in a while but that makes me…ME. I don’t regret any of the choices that I have ever made, except perhaps not doing more of what I thought was right at the time, so why doesn’t he just let me be…I need to breathe.
