Sindy's Blog - September 18, 2003

September 18, 2003

I just don't understand why this is all happening to me. I think these past few months have, by far, been the worst of my entire life. As if Dylan breaking my heart wasn't enough drama for one semester, now my parents have to go and turn my life upside down.

They decided to break the news last night that dad will be moving out by the end of the week. We got the whole, "This has nothing to do with you," speech, which really just made me angry. We might not be the cause of their break-up but their divorce kind of affects us and it's selfish of them to think it doesn't. Man, I wish this was all just a dream - I mean a nightmare - cuz then I could wake up.

I don't know what all this even means. Am I now going to have to spend the weekends with my dad - completely ruining any chance of a social life during the school year? Where is my dad going to live? I hope he's going to have cable. They won't tell us why they're doing this, just that they're sure they are making the right decision. Yeah, it's the right decision if their goal was to ruin my life.

Oh man, I hope neither of them is going to get remarried anytime soon. It's bad enough I have to deal with them living in separate houses, I don't want to have to deal with them going on dates with other people. But I'm going to have to deal with that, aren't I? Eventually they are going to get tired of being alone and they are going to start meeting people. All I have to say right now is, "Why me?" What did I do to deserve this?

I have homework I should be doing. Not that I really care... I doubt my stupid parents would notice if I did my homework. I'm just going to go to bed now. Don't feel like thinking about this mess anymore.

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

Call 911 now. They will help you. Just say you have been abused by your family member and they will take it from there. If you want, add me and we can talk

    If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.
