Comparing (rant)

Postby MV2020 » Thu Jan 28, 2021 6:33 am

So my parents mainly my mom always compares me with my friend, let’s say her name is like Sarah (I don’t want to actually write her name), my mom always talks to me and says oh did u know Sarah wakes up at 6:30am and Sarah studies for an hour then goes to basketball practice. And I get so annoyed by this because I don’t have to wake up early because I manage my time and finish all that I need to study quickly so I won’t have to do it over a long period of time. Also some things they don’t know about Sarah is that she watches a lot of YouTube and Netflix and Disney plus etc. and she makes jewelry with her mom all the time in the afternoon so that’s why she needs to wake up early.

Also just a while ago my dad asked why I was still up (it’s 12:30am here) and I said I was doing homework and he said that did I know that Sarah does homework until 1am.
I was so annoyed
I get my homework done early and my school is also harder and I am one grade ahead of her, this shows that I have more and harder homework but I use time management to get it done.
I just wanted to let that off my chest and wanted to ask if anyone is in the same situation.

No but that's messed up, to be comparing you like that. You and Sarah both sound like busy responsible people, I dont know what your parents problems are. You sound just as responsible as her.

i think your parents dont realise your trying. maybe outdo sarah in some sort of way and maybe your parents will come round.

You should talk to them. You can show them your post here and start a conversation. If they understand you they will never do that again.

Ya, I talked to my mom, she said she didn’t want to compare me with Sarah, she just wanted to tell me what is happening with Sarah. She apologized and said she will try to stop it now.

Hey so I’m not comparing myself to anyone. Umm my parents always want me to be like them but I can’t. I don’t trust them, it’s just a feeling. I don’t know how to get rid of the fact that they messed up.
