My family
by Shawn, 15, male

October 3, 2005

Dear Diary,

I have ceased to have a relationship with my parents. i leave for school at 6:30 in the morning, and get back at seven at night. When i get back, all i do is eat something, go up to my room, do homework and go to sleep. On weekends, I am usually hanging out with friends, or just getting outside of the house. when i sometimes eat dinner with the whole family, i don't talk about anything important. My parents ask me hows school, I say fine and leave it at that, maybe throwing in a peice about how i did well on a test or something. We chit chat idly, and then I bus my plate and leave the table. nothing more. It makes me sad that I have a family life like this. when i go over to my friends house, i see him talking about his life to his parents with no restraints, asking advice and telling them about EVERYTHING that goes on, sex drugs and rock 'n roll included. I go back to m house, and if I even remotely suggest something they feel uncomfortable about, they immediatly say it's bad, and that they would hate to see me doing those things. I don't tell them anything, i can't ask them for help when i have a problem, i can't look for them for support or advice. They're so far away from me. I'M SO SAD I DON'T KNOW WHY
