I am so sick of being judged. My mom acts like I am the wildest girl she has ever met which is just totally ridiculous, and my dad acts like I am the biggest sinner in the world. I am so tired of their stupid little comments about me. Its my life I will live it how I want!! Is there a good song about this? Thanks
Just wanted to add that I dont drink, I dont do drugs and I dont sleep around. I had the same b/f for 7 years and we just recently broke up.
Well, do you do things that don't line up with your parents' morality? Because if you are going out, drinking, doing drugs, and sleeping around, then maybe they have a point, right? Sometimes all it takes is a little drug use, or a casual boyfriend or two, to set a parent off.
It's a good chance that they see themselves in you, and that scares them. You probably won't understand until you become a parent yourself... you want the best for your child, and you don't want your kid to repeat the same mistakes, heartaches, and f**k-up's that you did when you were their age.
I'm a parent, could you tell? Heh heh. Seriously, though, it's tough trying to be yourself. I stopped talking to my parents about my issues and how I was dealing with them (bipolar/suicide and lots and lots of drugs). It wasn't until close to ten years later, now that I'm a parent as well, that I've been able to establish any kind of close communication, but there's a distance there that will never quite go away.
I don't know what your relationship with your parents is, but I'd hate to see you lose it entirely. I wish I could give you honest advice, but all I've known to do was to be myself. Almost ten years later I can acknowledge that I am an alcoholic (20 months sober), but I couldn't then.
Well, anyways, I wish you the best. I hope some of that made some kind've sense.
As far as your musical question:
"Teenage Dirtbag" - Wheatus
"Passenger" - Deftones feat Maynard from Tool
"This Is Now" - Hatebreed
"I Will Be Heard" - ditto (actually, pretty much all Hatebreed)
the Great Milenko album by Insane Clown Posse
(it's fun, and it pisses people off apparently)
"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" - U2
"I'll C U When You Get There" - Coolio
the Opiate EP by Tool
"Ball Tongue" - Korn
"Not Gonna Get Us", "Clowns" - Tatu
kind've random, but that's how I roll
EDIT: ha ha ha a song from Lindsay Lohan? Oh, sure, I bet that she wrote it about how all those tabloids were talking smack about her and her (completely true) escapades of alcohol and drug abuse and sleeping around. *chuckle*
We're Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister.
Only For The Weak by In Flames
Suburban Met by In Flames (kind of)
Pinball Map by In Flames
Cloud Connected by In Flames
In Flames is all about depressing stuff (kind of) but I guess its a lot about life and its troubles.
We're not gonna take it was written when the parents started boycotting Twisted Sister's music and tried to get them banned..so it really works lol
hope that helps
When I'm upset and feel like I've been wrongly judged, I listen to "Mad World" by Gary Jules. It's really calming and absolutely beautiful. The lyrics are perfect.
My Life by Billy Joel
the song doesn't start until about 1:30 into this video
but here's another, it was the theme song to a tv show they may remember.
Sounds like its my life by Bon Jovi is right up your street
I like the second one a lot. lots of feeling... loads of potential too! 🙂
anything by Eminem
