Hi there, I'm actually not a mother, but I figured most mothers will be able to help me with this. I'm actually still a teenager, and I'm an Arab. I've tried many ways to solve my problems and 'talking about it with them' didn't work. I have my mother, who's always against me, she makes me clean and take out the trash and do everything all by myself. (If anyone wonders, no I'm the middle child, not the oldest) And my younger sister gets all the attention, nothing surprising though. And my oldest, don't even get me started about the things she'd do to me. I wish they'd put us in separate houses, and people tell me that it'll get better when we grow older, but no! It only keeps getting worse. And my dad is always at work and comes back 11pm, but when he gets home all he wants is all of us sitting together, eating or watching TV, but in silence. I have a journal and I write my life in there, yes it helps a little, but I still cry myself to sleep every night, and I still feel brokenhearted, and I'm fed up. Please help me! On top of all of this I have no friends to let it out to and I can't even tell anyone because I don't want people to know how miserable my life is. What I just told you is nothing compared to my life.

keep up with your journal and focus on your education. in a few more years you will go to college and make yourself into a strong independent woman. you just have to set your goals and never stop following them
