So...my parents are really overprotective of me. My oldest sister Laura passed away when I was 4, tragically. On top of that, I am fresh out of therapy for major depressive disorder. Anyways...
I understand completely why they are the way they are...but I had this urge to go out and do something they said not to the other day because I was really mad at them, and I did.
I went out and I smoked a few cigarettes with my buddy, Mitch. Now, this wouldn't be a problem...except I liked the rush of doing something against the rules and I'm considering trying other things, like getting drunk or getting high.
Any other adult I've asked has said "NO! DON'T EVER TRY THOSE!" But, then there are the few that tell me it's alright to gain new experiences like that and learn from the mistakes that ensue.
I just don't know what to do.
