I feel like the way my parents raised me made me into the anxious, paranoid, isolated, over-thinker, introverted, depressed person i am today. I've been doing what I've been told to do my whole life because I'm afraid of the outcome if i dont. I've never snuck out, never tried drinking or drugs, never hung out with friends outside of school let alone have many friends. Being anti-social and introverted growing up makes me even think more and have anxiety often than before. I feel like a dog on a leash with only little amount of freedom but is still told what to do and what not to do. Growing up like this i already feel like an adult in a teenager's body. I already have things picked out for myself that I shouldn't even start to worry at this age. I feel capable and responsible to handle myself because of them. I feel like when I'm an elderly woman I'll look back and regret everything i didn't do as a kid and as a teenager. Especially not having even more than 2 friends or so we don't hang out because they have better people in their lives to spend time with. I hate how i am as a person being this hermit with a larger shell than normal.
