My life is being controlledWatch
I am not allowed to:
*Pierce ears or any other parts of the body
* Drink alcohol
*Wear revealing clothes (no shorts (not even in the summer), no crop tops, no dresses above the knees, etc.)
*Wear makeup, no lipstick, no falsies, etc.
*Wear nailpolish, no fake nails.
*No partying, no sleepovers.
This saddens me as I feel very stiffled - I am not allowed to express myself! I am 16 years old, turning 17 next week. It is worth noting that this isn't due to religion, I suppose my parents are just very conservative.
I have two questions to ask:
Is this being melodramatic?
Any-body experienced/is experiencing this same thing?
Is it right for my parents to do this as I am living under their roof?
Wait until you're 18/move out and you'll be free to do whatever you like.
If that doesn't work then you can always wait until you're legally old enough to do these things yourself. My parents have always had a strict no tattoos rule (just because they don't like them), but recently my mum has said that she wouldn't be angry if I got one as I am an adult who can make my own decisions- so they might come around eventually!
Hope this helps!
