My parents have been secretly confiscating my things and sneaking into my room…
My father has just taken a plastic mat out of my room and washed it outside. Apparently it was dirty.
He didn’t tell me about it, though. I heard him and my mom muttering about it, so I went down to my room and it was gone. My dad was washing it outside.
I really hate him sometimes.
He has gone into my room without telling me before, like the time he read my journal, and the times my mom has gone to “inspect” my room to make sure that it isn’t messy or dirty. SO annoying.
When I saw that the mat was gone, something clicked in my head: it was this feeling of “I have to do something about this once and for all”. Then, I was overwhelmed with hopelessness, for what can I do about it? I still have just under 2 years until I can leave home, and no matter where I go, people nag me about cleaning up after myself. I don’t know how much longer I can stand it! Earlier today I already snapped at my mother because she was nagging me so badly about some black bean slop on the floor. It sounds really gross, but I swear that it was hardly anything. I had already cleaned most of it up earlier anyhow.
What can I do? Luckily now I have my journals locked up safe-and-sound, ever since my father read my old one. Unfortunately, however, I can not lock up my room quite so easily. I am only allowed a lock that locks from the inside, although my parents broke that one ages ago.
It is not as though my safety is at risk by having a mildly messy/dirty room. I am perfectly fine, at least with regards to my room. My parents just seem to be neat freaks.
Again, does anyone have any suggestions?
