Not a problem, just something that gets to me.
I feel like I’m being forced to grow up.
I’m already paying my own bills including my loans and tuition bill.
I have to drop out of college because my parents can’t help me pay, and God knows I can’t afford it, even with my scholarships.
All my friends have Mommy and Daddy to help them.
And they don’t understand why my parents can’t. They even sometimes call them bad parents. But it’s not my parents’ fault. They just aren’t rich like the people up here.
My friends all think I’m weird because I love Disney movies. They can’t understand why I’m so immature.
I can’t understand why they want to grow up.
I would give anything to curl up in Mommy’s and Daddy’s lap like I used to.
It really isn’t fair.
All my friends are planning their summers. Going to Europe and South America and getting beach houses to party.
While I’m back home. Working 2 jobs. With no day off so that maybe in a year or 2 I can return to college so I don’t end up in my parents’ position.
But at the same time..
My parents are happy. They have 2 daughters who love them to no end. They both have significant others who love them. Even with no money, we’re happy.
But going to school and seeing everyone living off their parents still…
