Home again - June 1st 2011, 05:37 AM

So I'm not exactly sure where to put this but like well...well I use to go to art college but it didn't really work out as what I wanted to do so I moved back home and am gonna go to my local community college to try and figure out what to do, on paper this looked fine but in practice well...idk my parents are just, it's like they don't expect me to be any different are still trying to order me around and control me just like always and I'm so tired of it, and at the same time my mom lost her job a month ago and she seems to be going nuts over that railing about how consumer society and capitalism and how that's why she was fired and my dad just, just ARGH! Why can't he ever just leave me alone to do what I want to do why does he always have to drag me kicking and screaming off to do something with him? And it's always so stupid cause he'll wanta watch a movie by which I mean he'll fall asleep and I'll be left sitting there by myself and I'm supposed to just sit there and do nothing all night long! And I can't see my girlfriend cause she's busy with finales and stuff and I don't want to talk to her about this cause she has enough to deal with and I don't wanta worry her, and just I hate feeling so helpless and like I have no control over my life at all and I keep thinking about cutting myself and I thought I was past this and...sigh i don't know

people like you and me, it's our job to care it's all we know it's what we were created to do. Even if the people we care about weren't real or didn't know us, we just keep on caring anyway. That way we make sure a little piece of that person lingers on watching over us, like the heroes in our dreams like the stars in the sky.

I feel like maybe you should open up to your girlfriend about how things are going for you right now. As your girlfriend, and being a couple, I feel it's important that you open up. While she may be dealing with a lot, I'm sure she appreciates knowing what's going on with you. It would also be helpful to have someone to talk to I'm sure. Talking about things can really help sort things out in your own head, come to solutions, and figure out the situation more clearly.

I'm sorry you feel so helpless, but I promise you're not. Things will get better. Do you have a job? Maybe consider getting one and moving out as soon as you can. With the way your parents seem to be, it may be beneficial to get away from them.

Self harm is hard, but you can get through this without it. Try to find ways to distract yourself. And if you ever need anyone to talk to, PM me. I'm always here!
