My Dad and Step Mum have really high expectations for me that I don't always manage to reach, and then they get really angry. The other day, for example, I got 19.5 out of 20 in a French test, and my Dad said to me, "Is that really the best that you can do?" And my Step Mum said, "We don't pay for you to go to that school to muck around. We told you to study for that and you obviously didn't! What is your problem?!" And I did study, I studied really hard. All I mucked up on was I put an accent around the wrong way!
I'm not really sure what I should do. It made me feel really bad about myself and it isn't the first time it's happened. I try really hard but they're never happy. I guess it doesn't help that my Mum and I don't really have a good relationship. She felt really betrayed when I moved in with my Dad and she never really got over it. So she never calls me, she never comes to any of my sports games, she just doesn't really seem to care anymore.
Because my parents are super strict I can't really talk to them, and I also can't really talk to my Mum either. I'm really shy and quiet and most people tend to overlook me at school, so I don't have any friends that I can't talk about this.
What should I do?
Second be grateful that you have family some people aren't as fortunate.
My advice to you:
Talk to you're parents. You say you are shy and I realize talking to anyone can be difficult if you are, but if you don't then nothing will change. Tell them how you feel, how them saying that makes you feel. It's not healthy for a parent to put a lot of pressure on there child. Be strong and strait to the point.
Same for you're mom. Talk to her. Tell her you love her. Surprise her with a call (at a good time)
Again be strong. Shutting herself out from you're life is childish. So be the bigger person and show her how silly she is being.
I'm sure you can do it. I hope everything works out well for you.
Kill it with kindness
