My mom doesn't let me be happy
My mom is a person that's difficult to understand or get along with. When she doesn't like something, or when she's upset, she also tries to make everyone else around her upset as well.
When I do something wrong, she takes away my happiness, the things I have.
It started when I wanted to get contacts. She doesn't like the idea, so she complained a lot. She kept saying that the contacts would make me blind, even though that has no chance of happening.
I've been going to church on Sunday the past few weeks, and I have to say, it's the happiest I've been in years. And my mom just can't wait to take that away from me.
So today, while I was taking out my contacts, I accidentally poked part of my eyeball, making it turn red. I didn't want her to think it was an infection, so I told her what happened. However, she took that as an opportunity to say that contacts were bad for me, since the contacts apparently made blood vessels appear in my OTHER eye, and that I should never wear them again. I snapped back at her, because she was being unreasonable. It's the end of a long day, and I've been really busy. What gives her the damn right to say that my eyes aren't supposed to have blood vessels? She was the one who doesn't know anything about eyes. Apparently she got angry that I was trying to reason, and said I wasn't allowed to go to church anymore, because church influenced my bad attitude, and that school is starting soon. She's rarely around me most of the time, and it seems like she doesn't know that I'm stressed. She's trying to take away my happiness, and I can't help but snap at her whenever I try to reason with her. She said that I can go back to church when I turn 18 (in 3 years) but I really want to go next week. What should I do?
