You tell me to do something, I do it. You tell me to not go out too much and study. I did, but the time that I actually want to celebrate something with friends, I can’t. Every year, I give up doing things because it’s not safe to be outside the house. It’s a dangerous world, I know. I just want to celebrate my birthday with my friends. All I ever do at home on my birthday is just sit around, doing homework, listening to music, watching movies on my computer and eat cake at night. That’s about it. I usually never ask you guys for anything except the necessities. And the only birthday parties I am allowed to go without problems was with Gen. Seems like you don’t trust me to make my own decisions, to be able to protect myself in dangerous situations. Whatever. You see me as a disappointment. Always compared to my sister. Always compared to my cousins. Always compared to everyone else. I hate your expectations because I can’t reach them to make you happy. My expectation is just to learn. If I can’t have a job, never leave outside of the University, never go out and experience new things, HOW WILL I EVER LEARN how to communicate with others? How am I supposed to know what to experience when I finish college? I’m dying here. I don’t want to be just this person who knows things but cannot apply them to real life situations. I just want freedom and your approval.
