Earlier today I go downstairs to ask my mom about what she wants for her birthday and answers by saying, um I don’t know. I really don’t want anything you can get me anything sweetie. I start nudging her and say no mom cmon just tell me. She goes on to answer and then hesitates and so I wait patiently. She says, I want you to be happy. That’s all I want. It has occurred to me now that I’ve been so unhappy lately. It tears me up inside knowing my mom can see how unhappy I am. My emotions have gotten the best of me and I’m not sure what to do.
