Yeah I get like 4 hrs of sleep on the weekdays but I hardly ever show it.My mom kinda understands but she doesn't get that I need a breakadults are always trying to overworks us because they actually have no clue what we go through. My parents say im lazy because on the weekends all i want to do is sleep. They have no clue that i get like 5 hours of sleep a day and that im extremly tiered. It can be hard to deal with it and extremely hard to cope. but for me, sometimes planning out my day helps a little and takes away some of the stress. :-D Hope this helped ya ashley.
Im four teen too... My 'friends' suck. they tell me that im apart of the group.. But if they went to the mall or the movies... I wasnt even close to being invited. "Its ok. I just didnt have enough room in the car" or "I could only bring 8 people." Those types of things. You want the truth? Friends will come and go.. well at least some of them. And A lot of them wont be nice to you at all. Most of them will be (Exuse my frech) b****** and cruel. Theyll talk about you behind your back and tell your secrets...
As for parents... Well, I play basketball and soccer. My parents are always telling me your better than those girls.. You should be thinner and faster.... Or that I am fine the way I am and just that I need to put effort into it... That will (hopefully) change. They push me to get the best grades in the class... Not possible.
Teachers.... are all the same. You forget one thing in their class... or fail one thing... Your immediatly on their hit list. It is terrible. Ive gotten my butt chewed out for reading a book... in LITERATURE! It was terrible...
Its alot to juggle... Freinds lying, cheating.... mothers and fathers exspecting more from you than you can give.... Teachers asking of you to do more than you have time for... or even sometimes the brains for.... And then sports... You have to be better than the rest...Its hard.... Its always going to be hard... Ive learned that the hard way.. And Im still it.
Ive been through everything youve said and more... Ive been called names.. Vampire... and Bella... And Blood Whore from another book I read... These people are cruel... But High school doesnt last forever. There will always be people out there that talk about you and make you insecure about yourself. but there will also always be those people you can trust. People who get you.
I know... Im only 14, how would I know? I READ! Youd be surprised by how much you learn through books... It may seem rough for you... but theres always someone whoes got it worse... someone who's hit rock bottom....
I hope it helped.. I wouldnt mind being your friend.. maybe we could exchange some things thats happened between us... and maybe we wont... But just know your not alone in this... Ive been there.... and the only way to talk about it is to talk to people you trust... It helps.. ALOT!
