Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

I understand you can't get your license because you're visually impaired, but why not utilize public transportation? You're 18, and you essentially live in Los Angeles (assuming you live in the Torrance I'm thinking of)... you have buses and trains at your disposal. It'll take a lot longer than 2 hours to get to your final destination, and you'll have to pay for bus/train fare (probably around what you would have to pay in gas, though), but you could arrange a visit with your brother once you have your bus/train route planned out, at a time that wouldn't interfere with your other obligations/activities.

I'm sorry to hear about how your sister treats you. I can see why she would be frustrated about having to change her plans to drive you around, but that doesn't give her the excuse to treat you poorly. I'm also sure she knows, deep down, that you truly appreciate her for everything she does to assist you. If you feel comfortable doing so, I would sit down with her (with an adult relative that you trust to play "referee," to ensure things don't escalate and turn into a fight) and talk about what you two can do to change the nature of your relationship. Your sister needs to know how much you value her, and how much it hurts you when she treats you poorly. In return, going along the lines of what I said earlier, you can begin to become more autonomous by learning how to use public transportation. I don't know how visually impaired you are (completely or partially blind), but there are people with your impairment who manage to get around on a day-to-day basis without relying on relatives. There is no reason why you can't learn to do the same as well (and remember, you don't have to learn how to do so without assistance - I'm sure there are non-profit agencies and/or government programs in your area that can offer free services of some kind!).

I am learning about what they have to offer as in tramsportation from a program I'm I'm at junior blind of America in Los Angeles. It's just she did promise to take me if I knew she wasn't I would of figured another way to get there and it just caused more stress for me. Thank you I will try to talk to her about everything and my step mom said she would to because she is seeing how she is getting meaner towards me
