I realize I'm writing a lot but, I'm not sure when I can get back on again...I guess I just need one question answered, for anyone who has read this far- If my parents, and my therapist, want the best for me, then why am I trapped in their bubble of not being able to dress the way I want, or be the person I think I'm becoming?
I have an image, of who I want to be, and what I wish to look like, but no one's OK wih it except for me. What bothers me is that I'll just look like any other teenager. Yes, I do have jobs, but I already know to dress appropriately for them. I just, want to experiment. Is that so bad???
