    So, why are you choosing to do things wrong?

    I slipped up a lot when I was 15. I had a sick Dad and a stressed out Mom and older siblings who were trying to help my parents and still dealing with their own issues. I know your situation and it's really easy to feel lost and unwanted when your in the midst of all that chaos. Sometimes you might say or do something that screams, I'm here, hello!! Adults sometimes forget that teenagers aren't adults and they are trying to navigate life through what I thought was a really weird onset of hormones, emotions and changes. When you top that off with a bunch of family issues it's hard.

    I hope you have a adult mentor that you can go to. I was so lucky to have a teacher in my corner throughout high school.

    I can tell you the stuff I went through has made a really resilient person. I am confident that you are going to be one strong Woman because you're certainly one strong young lady.

If someone is not willing to own their behavior change isn't possible because, inthwir minds, there's nothing they need to change.
    Some people do this out of insecurity, maybe others learned find this growing up. Still some are simply narcissists not capable of seeing themselves doing wrong. I think the first two have a better chance at change, though.
    Are you talking about a adolescent know it all 15 year old teenager(even more than their parent)
    or the parent that has no representation on here for their side of the story?

    Ouch....lol
    Ugly has more information than the people here because I have vented to him and told him what is going on just by the way to the poster above me.
    But I guess that's fair.
    Listen, I'm just looking for how to fix our relationship. I'm a crappy child, I have a very quick temper, and I do yell and do stupid things that would get on anyone's nerves. She's has every right to be angry at me. No one has to hear her side of the story to see that lol

    I'm 38, recently divorced, have two kids, and am just looking forward to being taken up into heaven..... if that tells you anything.
    I fantasize about my mind being transported back in time to when I was just starting high school..... the school lessons were easy, if I had done the work. I could have achieved so much more..... my father told me back then, I would want back in school after graduating..... I didn't believe him...... he was right.
    All the strife and discontent I gave my parents..... I regret to this day.
    I think you are a good girl. You atleast asked for advice.... more than I would have done at your age.

    I'm good at school. I've gotten straight A's since 7th grade which is when I started caring. I'm in honors classes now with a 4.1 GPA so far.
    It's only because i have good work ethic. Nothing to do with how smart I am.


    I am trying so hard to stop causing my parents strife, my mother didn't even know anything was wrong because I quit letting her know things were wrong to make our relationship better.
    I am trying, I really am. I'm probably failing. But I'm trying.

    Smarts has little to do with it. It's all about putting the effort in. I graduated from high school with a 1.63. My sister graduated early, got a masters degree, and a juris doctorate........ we both took IQ test at her college for a study...... I scored 3 points higher.
    I think you will turn out fine.

    I've learned that. If smarts had to do with it I would be failing.
    I hope I will.

    I wish more people actually understood this. Therapy isn't just a confessional. It's learning why you do what you do and how to change negative aspects of who you are even when you can't change what caused them. It's honestly finding roots and picking them apart to decide what needs to change and why. It's cliché but a good therapist in my experience just shows you who you are and how to better you.
