No matter how I happy I am, they can always bring me down.
Last night the concert my sister and I went to was absolutely amazing! It was a Christian Rock concert with the bands The Afters and Sanctus Real and it truly amazing! The music was great, it was a fun time with my sister and the faith those guys have is so inspiring and outstanding! I was actually having a super great night and I was glad to finally do something fun! However, as soon as I got home, just like always, mom and dad ripped into me for nothing, calling me lazy and selfish, telling me I have a terrible work ethic and saying they were ashamed of the way I’ve turned out. But, as always, they ended it with, “We’re not trying to pick on you, we tell you this because we love you.” Somehow it’s not quite as convincing after an hour of telling me how horrible I am and how you both were perfect children. They literally told me they never did anything wrong as a child and always did what their parents wanted at all times and are very hard workers and they’re quite disappointed I didn’t turn out the same way. Funny how I do a ton of housework all the time because mom is bedridden with a nerve disease and both me and my sister get her all her meals and anything she needs to drink along with washing laundry, cleaning the entire house and all the other random stuff she decides has to be done. Like going through her mother’s trash every single day in every trash can in her house. I’m still not entirely clear on why she wants us to do that but because we are obedient children, we do as she asks. I’m tired of doing everything she wants and more and still getting reprimanded for it. I’m 19 years old and I shouldn’t have to put up with this. And neither should my 14 year old sister. It’s awful.
Have a good weekend everyone! I’ll write more tomorrow.
