Am I being a selfish teenager?
I’m 18. I have my own car. I love having the sense of freedom when I go place alone with no one but myself to worry about. But I rarely get that luxury. My parents always want to know where I’m going, what I’m doing and why I’m doing it. They want me to text them when I get there and let them know when I’m coming home. They don’t like me to stay out too long unless I have a sibling with me. They see it as a bad thing that I want to be left alone. I get tired of it. It literally exhausts me. I feel like my life is being dictated. Is this wrong of me? Or is it a natural instinct that I should follow? I hope I’m not thinking only of myself.
