Dear Mom

Hey Mom,
So I may have turned my back on you, but maybe you’ll get your wish, and I’ll turn around. But honestly, I doubt that. You don’t seem to understand how hurt I’ve been by the family. I feel like you and Dad only want me home to be your house-slave. I mean, living in the basement with nasty spiders, doing all the chores-like no one else is capable, not able to have my best friend Kricket, not even allowed to mention Casey’s name without a disapproving glare (He’s my future husband, for Pete’s sake, get used to it!); I just don’t feel complete when I’m with family. Then everyone comparing me to my thriving sisters, praying for my lost or broken soul, wanting me to run home like the prodical son. I’m not like that. I’m happy now.
I have someone who loves me, Casey, and you can either accept it or disown me-it doesn’t matter to me. And I love him back. When I thought he was leaving me, my heart broke into a million more pieces than it ever had with any other guy. I can honestly say that I know in my heart and soul that Casey and I are meant to be together. We’re planning on getting legally married at the Courthouse with my next paycheck from the Zoo. I didn’t really want you to find out, but I figured you and Dad ought to know.
These may not be the best of times for me right now-I’m having trouble with my relationships (family, God, friends), and with life in general. But I cannot tell you how much you mean to me. And I feel like crap knowing that you are watching me live like I am. I’m trying, I really am. I just seems that everything I do, it just gets worse. I’m not ready to give up though. I want to pull through this, and be your best friend. If you still want me to hang around, I’m here, you have my number, and now my email, it’s not impossible for you to get in touch with me. I appreciate you checking up on me and everything else you do for me. I know I don’t show it, I really don’t know how. I love you all so much, please don’t forget about me.

Your Daughter, til the bitter end,
~Bonnie Wyatt
