Life had its ups and downs
17 year old female
I always blamed mum for dad going away, finding a new girlfriend and finally starting a new family. He started to see me less until he only saw me once a year even though we lived in the same town. I missed him. I hated it when mum bought home boyfriend after boyfriend. At school my friends always commented on how many boyfriends mum had.
A couple of the people at school started saying bad thing about mum. That resulted in people starting whispers saying I was like her. Eventually people ignored me. Even my friends. People stopped talking to me in class. I always ended up sitting at a desk by myself.
I always considered my life messed up, as both my home and school life were messed up. I had thoughts of suicide. More than once. Even more people started commenting on my weight. At the time I couldn't believe how much life hated me. I thought it couldn't get worse.
But mum got cancer. And finally I had enough. But I didn't take the easy way out. I fought back. Told people about the kids at school bullying me. Till finally it stopped and guess what? The next year a new girl came. We became best friends.
My dad and I became close. Two peas in a pod. I lost my chubbiness in a year. But mum still has cancer...But she has promised me she'll never bring another boyfriend home I don't like after I sat down and talked to her about it.
My life had its ups and downs but is smoothed out now. And still's going...
