For the past few months I've noticed a pattern.. ever since I told my parents I wanted to join the military next summer to protect those that actually need help more than me they have been acting strange..It's as if they have nothing to say to me ever, they have started going on these trips and leaving me alone for 3-8 days straight. I'm only 16 and it's as if my existence is completely gone.. Plus the fact all my life I've been fighting for their acceptance.. They smothered my older sister with love and helped her and still help her while they treat me as an outsider that must deal with everything in life on their own.. It makes me wonder what's the point in anything.. So confusing and it's messing me up emotionally and mentally.The pain is making me revert back to being emotionally unstable..
