being young doesn't mean i'm stupid
Is it wrong for me to not want everyone around me drinking all day every day? Is it wrong to think I have had enough alcohol around me for a life time? I finally get rid of one alcoholic in my life then I'm forced to live with another. Is this my life? Will I always have to deal with the burdens of others drinking problems? I'm an adult you say. I can do what I want you say. What about what I want? Do I not matter to anyone? It doesn't feel like it. I get told to shut up for trying to express my feelings but I'm called heartless and cold for not saying anything. Am I heartless or are you hateful? You say you're not going to be told what to do by a fourteen-year-old girl, but what if she's right? Maybe this fourteen-year-old girl is who you should be listening to. Maybe she is exactly what you need to be listening to.
