Big girls don't cry..right??
I'm sick of everything..everything is going just totally wrong..

I'm in love with the sweetest perfect guy..so that's the good thing in my life..

but my parents would never approve or bless this relatoinship cuz he comes from a different culture and a different religion..and that's a big thing where I'm originally from..

my dad had two minor heart problems last year..and he never even told us till now!!!! he said it was 'almost' heart attacks..not sure what that meant..

if i tell my dad that I wanna marry that guy..or that I'm in love with him..he'd prolly have a heart attack..and if i just moved out or ran away or something..he'd prolly have a heart attack..so either way I'd be killing him..

my sister who used to be my best friend keeps putting me down and telling me there's no way I should be with that guy..and that he's prolly using me cuz he's 9 yrs older..and keeps saying bad stuff about him..which kills me inside cuz I thought I'd have her beside me..u kno..at least one person in the family who knows and who's by my side!
but no..she just keeps saying totally insensitive stuff that makes me cry everytime..and I can never talk back cuz I'd be trying so hard not to cry in front of her..and if i started talking I'd def cry..

I think my mom and my dad are getting a divorce soon..and it's killing me..

my dad has been stressing about me changing universities..and I just L.O.V.E my skool..and even though it's not gonna happen it's still too much stress..

he's also been telling me lately that I shouldn't bring home a boy..and that I'm gonna get married through arranged marriages..because I'm living in Canada and he doesn't want me marrying someone from a different culture!!! (and it's not like i've been living in my home country anyways!! i don't even get their traditions!!)

and on top of all that..I can't talk to anybody I know..I just can't depress someone with my problems..so I'm really about to explode..

I'm sure to some other people my problems are nothing..but they're there..and to me they're hard and they hurt so much..I'm so scared and confused and depressed..


sorry..just had to have a lil rant and didn't know where else to do it!

Rule #1: Don't sweat the small stuff.

Rule #2: It's all small stuff.

Live your life for yourself and you can't go wrong.

Oh I don't know, I've found that developing a basic don't give a frack attitude has worked for me pretty well over the years.

hehe, sounds familiar, except my rules were don't sweat the petty stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff. Seriously, it'll all work out. The guy you're seeing, if you feel strongly about him, then age hardly matters. case in point, my elder brother is married to someone who is 2 years younger than I, he's 35, and she's 29.

You wouldn't be the first person to go ahead and marry who you like and to heck with traditions. But you'd have to make that decision. Just giving you my humble opinion. Keep yer chin up and your principles straight and you'll win out.

And by the way, yes, big girls DO cry....when there's a need.

Hang in there. I think it's good that you want to be respectful of your parents -- that you're upset shows that you do care about upsetting them.

Just take things slowly. Try not to hit them with everything all at once. This will allow them to adjust to things.

We parents have a hard time allowing our children to live separate lives. Sometimes we have good advice, and sometimes we need our horizons broadened for us.

Good luck. Remember that they love you, and they want what's best for you.

Try finding a counselor to talk to so you don't keep your feelings all bottled up. You will feel a lot better!
