Letter to a friend
(Sent by Pilar Vazzano, a student from La Plata, Argentina)
Sorry I haven't written for so long! But I have been preparing exams that took up all my time. I have heard about the strong quarrel you have had with your parents. Adrian told me last week, so I wanted to drop you a line.
You shouldn't have left your home because of that! Acting like that you will never find a definite solution. Even more, you make things go
ing worth. It must be hard to for you to put up with your daddy's bad temper and your mum's attitude, who is always getting into your business. You say your situation is unbearable, and I understand it. But you must keep your calm!
First of all, I think you should ask for help. You ought to talk with someone close to your family who gets on well with your parents and that
be is capable of telling them that you need to live your life quietly and that you're fed up with being so controlled, don't you think it would be a good idea?
Apart from that, I suggest you getting a psychologist. I have one and since I started with the therapy I have had a change of attitude. Now I feel more relaxed. I try not to get involved with my often parent's discussions, and the things they make that bother me, I let them know. But I do it in a good way, as you should do with your parents.
Believe me, getting away from your home doesn't work. Ask for help and be always willing to make the relationship getting better. After all, they're your parents and they love you and want the best for you.
Well, that's about it. I must go now.
Lots of kisses,
