Its upsetting when you express your emotions in a mature and rational way to someone and explain how important it is to you to have your feelings acknowledged only to receive no response.
I’m sorry if it is too difficult for you to be forced to pay attention to the fact that I have feelings that are negative and irrational that you sometimes cause and contribute too.
I want to be able to say how I feel without fear that I may be ignored or that you just won’t care.
Once you stop existing for others and their opinions of you, I promise things get so much better.
I try to tell my 15 year old brother the wisdom and knowledge I’ve gained from even the past three years of living completely on my own without any help or consulting my family about anything I do.
I strive to do as much introspective work as I can to better understand myself in order to change my bad habits and irrational behaviors I have. I want to know why and how I’ve allowed them to become rooted into my being and put a stop to them so I am constantly evolving and making progress to being the best lil’ human I can be. ^_^
Introspective work is extremely helpful and vital in understanding yourself, which allows you to address your issues in a healthy and beneficial way.

Even though I am drunk and mad, I still made the right choice. For once I didn’t choose the evil option that would give me immediate satisfaction to only cause me many more issues in the long run. I actually went home and didn’t do a single thing that I’d regret later and you were on my mind all night. I wish you would actually realize what progress this is and what this all means.

Just before nightfall I decided to take a walk outside. The sky was low, enveloping any object in its reach. It formed a dull, purplish haze - like nothing I’d seen before. The streets were empty. Not a single soul was out. It was oddly peaceful - imagining I was the only one left.
