My dad makes me feel that life isn't worthwhile. He doesn't care if I'm happy as long as I am successful. He goes on and on about completely stupid things. Tonight he is making me feel that the only way to escape is to end everything. I want to escape. I would prefer running away and starting fresh, but if that isn't an option, maybe I shouldn't be here at all. I'm thinking about going to my aunt's house for the weekend. She lives downtown Chicago, and she is willing to pick me up so I can bring my dog. My dad doesn't want me to go, and I don't know what to say/do to convince him.
