      I’ll definitely ask if I can go. You’re songs honestly have such a deep meaning to me and I’ve never related to anything my life as much as I relate to them. You’re an amazing singer and so inspirational to me, you’re basically the reason that I’m still standing. I love to listen to your music when I’m sad or when I just feel like listening to something creative and beautiful to relate to. Thank you for everything you do, and thank you for being on this earth, I don’t deserve you.

    I know nobody's ever gonna see this, but short rant. I don't even know what to do anymore. I randomly miss my dad, I just got off the phone with a guy 20 minutes ago saying he's gonna have people best me up since I didn't send him nudes (I'm 12 he's 15). like wtf did I do? and I just am so stressed with so much on my mind :(

    My mom was yelling at me because I needed to get my car fixed, which I was going to pay for all of it, and can not control when my car breaks down, but it got so bad I was having a full-on panic attack right there and I said "Please just stop yelling," and she said, "Stop being so dramatic-" and continued to yell at me about how it's such an inconvenience to HER.

    Just got yelled at by my parents saying I’m a disappointment and never do things for this family. Apparently I have it better than them and my life doesn’t have problems and that I act like this because I’m a teen so I just over react. I’m and army child which means I move a whole lot. I just recently moved and currently have no friends or anyone to talk to except for my dog and it doesn’t help that I’m the oldest in my family so every time my siblings do something wrong i get yelled at for it too on top of all ready getting yelled at over things like forgetting things even though I have been so stressed lately and my anxiety is really bad so I just want to cry but I have to keep a smile on my face cause if not then I’ll get yelled at for over reacting so overall that long thing was to say that this song hits different

    Omg this is exactly how my parents act sometimes. They call me dramatic immature and they say I make stupid excuses because I’m upset. Your music just connects to me in a special way and your so inspirational I hope you make more songs because you have a gifted voice and you know how to make a song that connects to people. I’m sorry this is so long but I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you💜

    Everyone I try to tell my mum there is something wrong with me she just says it’s my hormones, I’ve felt like this for years I honestly don’t think it’s my hormones but obviously my mum doesn’t care enough to talk to me and find out what the actual problem is and to top it all off my dad is never around he is always in Afghanistan working and when he is home everyone just argues. The only person I can talk to in my family is my brother cause he knows how I feel, he has also told my mum that there is something wrong with him but she has just brushed it off like it’s nothing. Do parents care about us at all or just themselves

    Sorry for the rant but I had to get this off my chest

  • Rebel Girl

    My dad has called me stupid, and failure. He has thrown me around like i'm an old rag doll and screamed in my face. He's broken my heart, broken my trust, lost my respect, hurt me so much that i can't feel it anymore and so now i'm "over it." When i was little, he was my best friend. And now...?
    Well now i'm 16 and he's begging me to tell him what the problem is, and what's wrong with me. I was forced to write about it and he said I definitely exaggerated, and in the end he called me a rebellious girl with delusional ideas. Wow, dad.😐 I'm so touched.
    Long story short, i want a driver's license, a car, a job, and ultimately my freedom.
    He thinks i'm going down a path of destruction and i need a change of heart. 🙄

    Parents need to see this, they say we have it so good but don’t they realize they had it better? No social media, no desire to get the most likes on a post, maybe there was those kids everyone wanted to be but they didn’t see those kids on social media because there was no social media. Parents need to open their eyes and see that we aren’t the cause of all our problems, not all our teachers care about teaching us. We can’t control what we think. If you are reading this know that you are enough, if someone can’t see that then they are wrong and blind.

  • Rokaya Ahmed

    I think the most solid part of the song is "when we're hurt". The entire thing is based off teenagers not knowing how to deal with their hurting which ends up coming off as anger and the parents countering the teenagers' "anger" with more anger. I feel like this phrase doubles into two meanings: "to go make bad decisions when we're hurt" like it's used which means in the occasion where they're hurt they go make bad decisions like drugs or drinking or sneaking out,abd the second meaning "when we're hurt" which as I interpreted means that teenagers seem angry when really they're just hurt. It's a beautiful song

    Parents expect you to tell them what’s wrong.
    They expect it to be sorta hard, but then once you talk it out it will be fine.
    But what if you can’t talk it out.
    What if your scared?
    What if you don’t think they’ll understand?
    They say it will be better soon.
    When it has never changed.
    They don’t understand that some kids have problems.
    And that we need help from them.
    And that we don’t want to be the ones to ask for help.
    We want them to notice our struggles for them because then we will know they care.
    But they don’t notice.
    They wait for you to talk to them.
    They don’t understand
    That our lives aren’t what we tell them everyday after school.
    We ya school was fine/ good.
    When really, we got an F on our exams, got yelled at by a teacher for being too loud bc we’re crying.
    And lost our friends due to rumors.
    They don’t know about all that.
    But they should.
    I don’t think they ever will.
