I just want to be normal... - August 13th 2016, 11:55 AM

I know I may sound like a fucking immature bitch, but still.

I live with my grandparents. I don't have a fucking clue why. And I can't do anything about it because I'm not eighteen yet.

Things I don't like about them:
1. The always say unneeded comments about the smallest things. (When eating meals, they either say I eat too little or eat too much and that brings down my self-esteem so much.)
2. They're so loud so I can barely concentrate on anything.
3. Our apartment is small enough without them here.
4. They always ask me things that I don't want to answer, or I don't have an answer to, but they still insist for me to answer them if that makes sense.
5. Everything, anything, even my life, has to be revolved around them.

I asked my mum why I had to live with them. She said it was a part of our culture. I hate my fucking culture.

If I lived in China and we did this, than I would be perfectly fine because it's considered normal there.

But I'm not in fucking China.

I know I'll probably regret this later (when they die) but honestly, I just want to be normal.

Are there any ways to deal with this situation?

Without changing a part of me, how do I get to heaven?

If you were living with your parents, you'd find that you'd have pretty much the same problems. I can't answer for why your living with them but everyone has similar issues at home at some point. My parents are loud, they moaning about what I eat and do, they ask annoying questions. You can't have a go at them for having a small place to live if they can't afford it. Everybody has different curcumstamces. You only have to wait a while longer, when your 18 you can leave and do as you like.

Somebody loves you in this world

Do what makes you HAPPY, be with those who make you SMILE. LAUGH as much as you breathe, and LOVE as long as you live.

Although this doesn't feel normal for you, this is something most families experience. You are having to live with these people all the time, so you will come to blows at some point, but it is normal for everyone. Have you tried talking to your grandparents? They may not realise you are uncomfortable with their comments and questions, and hurting you certainly won't be intentional. Just have a chat with them explaining your feelings towards what they say and I'm sure they will be willing to stop. Also talk to your mum about the situation, as she might be able to better get the situation across to them. As long as they are aware you aren't happy, they will be willing to make changes in order to make your home a happier place for you.

I hope this helped, and feel free to VM/PM me if you need anything else
