Organised religion is ruining my life. I'm still religious, but religion mixed with culture means my upbringing was less than ideal, and still is. Why is it that my 14 year old brother has more freedom than me, a 20 year old female? When I was his age, I was too afraid to even THINK about asking to go out with my friends, yet he comes home after 8PM every single night? Yeah, I'm sure he's REALLY playing football that entire time after a whole day of school. Especially when he... read more
(I just wanted to say before I go on my little rant that I'm not against Christianity or any other religion. I just think some people force their beliefs on their kids too much. No offense. Anyway...)

I'm crying right now. My hair is too long, too much to take care of. I hate it. It goes down almost to my ankles. It's always a tangled mess. My highly religious mother won't let me cut it. I beg her over and over. "You can cut it when you're married." I tell her I'm cutting it when I move out. "You can cut it when you're no longer a child of God." IS GOD SO PETTY TO CARE ABOUT A WOMAN CUTTING HER HAIR TO A REASONABLE LENGTH?? I just want to cut it to my elbows. Nothing more.... read more
I can't feel safe anymore. I can't tell you how I feel anymore. I'm scared you will leave me again and never come back. I'm anxious all the time now that you will leave me forever. I can't feel safe anymore. If you could leave me for that you could leave me for anything. Anything I say can make you leave me. I'm scared. I don't feel safe.
