Alright, so I'm 16 now (17 in October) and I already feel as if my future is going to be pointless. I'm in grade 11, and already I'm feeling as if after I'm done school/university I won't have anything go right for me (I won't get a job, won't get my own house, etc). I have a poor relationship with my parents (especially my mom who likes to argue everything, and if you say otherwise she just ends the conversation). Things aren't helped when my own goddamn PARENTS are telling me I'll never get a girlfriend, won't move out, will never be successful. My depression seems to rise and lower randomly, I haven't changed my lifestyle at all, but there are still times where I feel incredibly happy, and then days later I feel really low again, which usually causes me to be rude/mean to other people, which strains the relationship with my parents even more. I've asked to see a doctor, but they would rather try and diagnose my (assumed) depression themselves, and get mad at me for wanting to a doctor about it.
Lost all hope
It can take some time, but you will get a job. But even if you were on welfare, you will be able to afford to move out of home, and with parents like yours, the sooner the better. I found that when I moved out I was able to start to heal, though some scars always remain.
are you not able to go and see a doctor without them? if so maybe you need to go and speak to someone, with parents like that hell i would.
JUST because they say mean things doesn't make them true, and you probably have far more strength than you think, life isn't always easy but its definitly worse fighting for the good things and the things you want.
if you want a house, car, job girlfriend, go and get them, no one will offer you them, but you CAN find them yourself and work to get them......
sometimes life sucks....but sometime it doesn't, THOSE are the times to strive for and when you have them enjoy em....
keep smiling hun life is NEVER as bad as you think it is
Get a taste of Old Time Religion..........lick a witch grin<br />
i can't believe that some parents do this kind of stuff to their kids. its just insane, clearly they have all kinds of problems of their own but it's probably too late for them...
anyway, i'd try to just keep my head down and push on through until you can get the hell out of there. once you're out don't look back you don't need that kind of poison in your life
