How many 19 year olds do you know that cannot do anything? Someone at this age should have some type of job experience, know how to take care of themselves, be independent. I have one person in mind when I think of these questions. Who else but the one and only Melinda!!!!!
My parents are strict and they don’t give me the freedom that most teenagers my age have. A typical weekend for me is staying home, watching television, babysitting both my little brothers, checking emails, and talking on the phone with my boyfriend. I am not allowed to go out unless I ask for permission. My seventeen year old brother gets more freedom then I do. When I get to hang out with my friends, I am stuck with my ten year old brother. So I am stuck babysitting while I am hanging out with my friends.
As the years past, I just feel more trapped in my house. I’m not allowed to work, not allowed to have any freedom what so ever. I feel like Rupanzel, stuck in this tower with no way out. Except I’m not waiting for prince charming to save me. I WANT OUT!!!!!!!!! I want to find my own way out, my own escape route. I’m scared to move on to the real world, but my parents are pushing me so far off the edge that I can already begin to fly off into a deep dark ibises. My little brother doesn’t listen to them and they just complain. If I were to act like him they would tie my chains tighter for be disobedient. I’m a prisoner in my own home. The more I stay there, the deeper I fall in my own sad little world.
