Since when did boys shape a girls life? Since when did girls start thinking its okay to let a guy take her independence in 9th or 10th grade? I guess I’m not one to talk because I am the queen of this. Yet why is it acceptable? Parents should teach there daughters that they can do anything and they don’t need a guy to show them who they are. Unless all girls are just as stubborn as me to not care about anything their parents say. Now I’m stuck between my dreams and my boyfriend. Do I leave and go follow my dreams or do I stay here with my parents and my boyfriend. I dreamed of being alone, of going somewhere far away and making something of myself. As I see these poor freshman and sophomores who depends on men it makes me sad for the pain their all going to endure one day.
