Don’t you compare me to other kids because no one is like me and I don’t compare you to other parents. Don’t complain about my attitude when my attitude is based on how you treat me. You need to understand and know me first before you judge me. Accept me for who I am.
Mom & Dad. I don't do drugs. I don't smoke. I don't party. I don't stay out til' 3 AM on a weekday. I don't skip class, but I don't make you proud either. You're always nagging at me because I'm not focused, because I'm chatting to a friend while completing my homework. I'm not perfect, there's kids worse than me. Why can't you see that? I'm mad at myself for displeasing you. I'm sorry.
