Anonymous asked: Nobody knows I cry myself to sleep; it's become a usual thing to write how bad I feel. I have this box full of my secrets that nobody knows... I post them on my blog and that's the only way I can express. Have you ever felt like you faked a performance? I just need somebody to understand...
Honey I understand a hundred percent. I know how difficult it is to think that nobody understands you. Trust me, when I say I know, I know. Every time I try to have a legit conversation about my feelings with someone, they laugh at me and take it as a joke. It’s gotten to the point where I stopped talking. To anyone. Like you, I found a place to express myself. I wrote things down, I looked for people like me online, and even in my everyday life. We live in a community where society doesn’t acknowledge some people’s existence. They don’t acknowledge their feelings. Everyone does what’s best for them and they shut out everything and everyone else. To be honest, you just have to get used to it, because people who have no feelings whatsoever don’t deserve your tears and knowing how you feel. Keep blogging your feelings, I’m sure it doesn’t only help you, but it inspired many <3
Anonymous asked: Right so Im on a year exchange in France. I'm 15. I got put in a isolated area (a 13 family village) and my host family wont show me anything and we don't do anything. I wanted to go explore the nearest city alone but they refuse to let me so I have next to no freedom. My host mum is not the nicest she talks down to or dismisses me when I try to start a convo. It's always me trying to start convos and they get annoyed when I don't speak, my French is not very good at all. More coming Ina min.
The rest of your message:
They run 2 b&bs and 1 guest house which are always full so they never have time for me. They keep comparing me to there 2 eldest children who picked up English when they did an exchange quickly. We share 1 thing in common that is cooking. I do a lot of sport and they do none. Do you think to getter best out of my exchange I should think about changing families? Thank-you. Xx
Alright. I think you should stand up for yourself. Tell your host mum how you feel about her talking down to you and not treating you well. Also explain to them that French is a lot harder to learn than English and that you can’t learn French overnight. Try to get closer to them. Maybe cook them a nice meal one day?
But to be honest I wouldn’t appreciate a family who doesn’t treat me well even though I’m paying them. There are some nice families who would give you a lot more freedom than these. So I would look for other families.
Hope I helped! x
