Wish my parents could understand that involving myself in a few small co-curricular activities isn’t going to be detrimental to my VCE, but the constant insults and remarks about how it could potentially be detrimental will ruin it for sure. But of course, adamant as always, they’ll never listen.
Then comes the comparisons of me to my close friends. Everything I do, you hate. I love to sing - nope, ‘it’s a waste of time’. I love to draw - again, ‘it’s a waste of time’. I don’t know what I want to do for the rest of my life - ‘you’re an idiot, all your friends have already made up their minds.’
