They All Say the Same Thing

I try to tell my parents that it's not a joke, I'm really just miserable for no particular reason that I can define. I try to tell them that it's not funny, that inside it's killing me. I'm trapped and restless and I want out.
And they always give me the same response. "You're so cute, honey", they say, kissing me on my forehead, leaving me to let everything sink in by myself.
No, I'm not. I'm not trying to be cute at all.


  1. I agree. I don't want to be cute, I want to be mature, taken seriously, and treated like an adult, but they just don't get it. >.<

  2. I have the same exact issue hon. No one really thinks that I'm depressed...they think I'm just cheerful Talia, always laughing and reading. Just cheerful Talia. They don't know the truth. They never will. Lots of endless love <3

  3. Ahh don't worry, soon enough you will be all grown up and out of home.

    Thanks for the comment. Yes I really am from Aus. :)

  4. I hate when people, especially my parents, don't take me seriously. It makes me feel like I'm not being respected. Parents always say "You can tell us anything" but really, they make you feel like you can't.

  5. Hannah and Molly- exactly!

    Talia- yeah, i suppose everyone sorta feels that way. but the reason i decided to blog this is bcuz i never feel like my parents don't understand me. we're very open. but when my dad told me that, it felt... wierd.
    you know?

    Chloe, Butterfly Cupcakes- thanks for the support:)
    i just think it's so cool ur from Australia. i'd love to go there someday...someday...

  6. This sounds like me. A lot like me. I'm screaming inside but silent on the outside. I hate it.
    I'm here for you if you ever need to talk about it.
