Is there any other teen feeling like me out there? I feel like slowly - slowly I have started to fade away from my family. Especially my dad. And then I feel guility for fading away, and try to be nicer to my dad. Is this supposed to be mood swings or something? I really HATE THIS!
Hey, relax. What you're going through is absolutely normal. I may not be an 'expert' but I have raised 5 boys and at one time or another they were all teenagers and yes, they all went through a stage where they 'pulled' away from me. I figured they didn't care for me anymore when all they were really doing was coming into their own, so to speak. They were growing up. Becoming independent. That's the way it's supposed to work. Now, all but 2 are out of the teenage years and I've gotta tell ya we're better 'buddies' than we ever were. Take it as it comes. Unless your family is composed of monsters you'll be fine.
I think my family is composed of monsters. But i guess i wont be saying why. Thanks anyways.
I like to think I'm not a 'monster' so my response might not work for you. Sorry. You sound like an intelligent 'young'un' though. To even be considering what you are I have no doubt you'll work it out! Good luck.
I don't think it's because of the mood swings but I feel that it happens because during teenage we want our own privacy and therefore we don't spend much of time with family members. It's just a thinking of yours that you are going away from your family but actually you are not. So, chill. You're a girl and girls can never fade away from their dad. This is what I feel.
