I haven’t exactly been myself lately. There is only so much rejection I can take. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve put up with more than my share of rejection over the years, but I never expected such overt rejection from family. There is just no way else to spin the decisions made.
Unfortunately, it is causing me to question everything, absolutely everything, even down to my parents’ attempts to help me find my footing again. This sounds awful, but I feel as though I desperately need to grow up, but have no way to do so. How can anyone be expected to be a truly independent adult when every economic opportunity is closed to her?
Damn it. I’ve always played by the rules. I deserve at least the opportunity to prove myself. I’m simply tired of fighting for every inch. At what point do I just give up?
