I wish I could tell my parents that...

Dear Mom and Dad,

Hope this letter finds you well.

There are so many things I wish I could share with you, share about the person I am growing into. You both have been a strong shield for me throughout this life, protecting me from the harsh realities of our financial situation, teaching me the right values and will continue doing that. Your support is invaluable and equally precious, I would not be who I am today without it.


I wish you knew about the life I live outside our home. In school, with friends and online, I face countless battles that you may not be aware of. I have experienced quarrels with friends, bullying, and the changes that come because of higher grades. There have been times when I have felt like giving up and not trying again, but I held onto hope.

I want to share these struggles with you too, but I am afraid of doing so. I fear that you might not understand me and the situation, and that you might scold me for my mistakes and not forgive me. I am scared of crying at home because you might not understand the reason for my grief, and you might worry too much. I do not want to burden you with my problems and emotions, as you already have many challenges to face, and they are very complex.

I am trying my best to navigate through this tough life. Even if I have made many mistakes in the past, please trust me that I am learning from them. I may not be good at everything, but soon I will find something that I will excel in.

I wish we could talk more openly and patiently about my life, exploring my likes and dislikes, which will help us plan my future together.

Mom and Dad, I cannot express how much I love you and care about you in words. Thank you for all of this.
