[April, 1991] Nobody Understands Me!

you wouldn't understand

April 2, 1991

Dear Journal,

Nobody understands me! At least my parents don’t. They don’t understand that some things I want might seem minor to them but are important to me.

I really hate being so restricted! I know my parents love me, want the best for me, etc., etc., but they just don’t understand! (I know I’m being repetitive, but it’s for emphasis.)

It’s really strange, but by restricting me, they just force me to rebel. I don’t even feel guilty when I rebel, because I feel this is what my parents brought me to, so I feel justified.

Let the teenage clichés begin!  The post above undoubtedly had to do with my parents infringing on my freedom in some way. At one point, when my grades started slipping, they forbade any social activity during the week. What they didn’t realize is that my grades started slipping because I was unhappy and lonely and thoroughly unmotivated to excel at school. They didn’t know that I was being teased by my classmates and getting into fights on the bus. They just knew what the report cards told them. Luckily I had my journal to vent my frustrations. Which I did with posts like these:

    You are an idiot! You have some sort of brain but never used it. You blame your problems on your parents but look outside your little box around the world and you will see how selfish you are and how others have it 1000 time harder. You had a roof over your head, food in your stomach, and parents that tried. You simply are a selfish person that should only blame yourself for your life. You deserve everything you got.

      Wow, troll much? This is something I wrote over 20 years ago and if you took the time to actually read it (and the premise of the whole blog), I was poking fun at my mopey teenage self.

      And considering I have a pretty awesome life, I’ll take your last sentence as a compliment. 🙂

    Good post, I know I have very similar entries to this. I love that we are both in the spring semester of 1991 on our blogs.
