I lied

I've been lying to my mother for months that I was doing good in school. Today I left a screen up with my grades on purpose, the guilt had hit me hard the night before, so hard that I have been up since 7pm yesterday due to my anxiety. She flipped out when she saw that her AP class taking daughter was failing for the semester. Even though she's enrolling me in a horrible school, and promising me no Christmas. I feel...happy. Maybe I'm just crazy?

  • No, you're not crazy, just honest.
    Your inner sense of morality and honor refused to allow you
    to mislead your mom any longer.
    Your mom just wants for you what any parent should want for their child.
    A better life than they had.
    But you can't build a better life, or ANY worthwhile life on lies and deception.
    You did the right thing.
    Be proud of your strength and take that power into the classroom with you.
    It will serve you well.
