When will my mother get over it? - November 25th 2011, 12:45 PM

Okay, so basically I dropped out of HS about 2 months ago to have more time to work and school really was just not doing it for me. Anyways basically my mother never agreed with this decision which is understandable, but even though she is my "guardian" the choice really wasn't her's to make. Ever since I quit school she just ignores me and avoids having any sort of conversation. I wont lie, last time she spoke to me it was about a month ago and only because she needed me to help her get something down from the car. Thanksgiving was yesterday and she just kept her distance from me throughout the day. I'm not the type of person to be devastated over this, but hey I do have feelings and it does make me sad at times that we live in the same house and haven't talked in a over a month.

Sometimes our parents try to put us in these kind of situations, in hoping we will do the right thing or go back.

Since its done and over with and you dont want to go back I would write a very MATURE letter to you mom. Yes letter. Why? Because if you try to have a conversation with her she proabably will not even listen to half of the words you say, and she might even walk out. This way there, If you write a letter, she will proabably read it, still be mad, and then chances are she will read it a few hours later again. See when someone has something they can read over and over again your own perspective will eventually get across to them and in most cases will Help the situation.

So write a deep MATURE letter. Dont leave anything left unsaid. Open your heart.

Goodluck, my friend.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Your mother is probably worried that because you have dropped out of school, you will fail to make something of your life. Of course, this is not true - there are lots of people who leave school at 16 and go onto do really well, both academically or otherwise.

I guess my advice is to prove to her that you can still make something of your life. Where are you working? Is there room for advancement, e.g. training or promotions?
