Mother won't let me wear my own make-up!! - July 3rd 2009, 02:29 AM

My mother won't let me wear the make-up I want, which bothers me because my feelings about wearing face paint, while thoroughly unexpected, make me want to kill myself less.

If I were to explain this to her, having lived with the wench for 16 years, she wouldn't give a damn. Trust me, it doesn't work. She's more concerned about being associated with a "freak" than my life. That's not hyperbolic, it's true because I know her and I know me. It would be relatively straight forward for her to get over my death, albeit painful. But the social stigma attached to her stings for a very long time, and it's almost impossible to locate the thorn and remove it before it infects the whole body.

I've also tried implying that her make-up looks like a poorly washed dog wiped its ass on her face, but it didn't seem to work.

So, in short, how do I convince my mother to let me wear the make-up of my choosing?

Well first off, have your ever considered if maybe you said some nicer things to your mom then maybe she wouldn’t be so hard on you? Because what you posted seemed a bit harsh to me.
I am sure she just wants you to be able to accept you the way you are naturally. I know a lot of parents who do not allow their teens to wear make-up, or little their make-up to only natural tones. So this is not really an uncommon request your mom is asking. And I know that feeling out of control of your own life or body can be really frustrating, but it is one of those things that most teens fight with their parents about. I know teens who can’t wear make-up, who can’t get the piercings they want, who can’t get tattoos, who can’t wear tampons. I mean really, there are a ton of things parents restrict on their teenage daughters. But this is your mom, and you should really try to respect your wishes. Soon enough you will be able to do whatever you want with your own body. But for now, it might be best to just humor her. Remember that she loves you and this will not be forever.

I would probably stop wearing my make-up like this, if I could "express myself" in any other way without her making me feel like I should kill myself. I know how dramatic I sound, but I really really hate her. I hope she dies. I feel like I'm squeezing out the poison right now, and soon, I may not even need her. I really hope she dies.....

I just feel like killing myself whenever she's around me... or anytime really.

She makes me hate myself when I'm not hating her.
