According to dictionary.com the term Privacy means the state of being free from intrusion or disturbance in one's PRIVATE life or affairs. But apparently this little thing called "privacy" doesn't apply to my social life, or even around my OWN HOUSE. I mean it's privacy for a reason, I get in trouble for expressing my feelings online. Hah, funny I thought everyone on the internet had their own voice, but apparently mine doesn't count, now does it Mom and Dad? So here's why I'm really fed up, as you all know, or not, facebook has been now allowing x-rated material (porn), so I voiced about it, not going for it but against. So here's what I exactly wrote. " All this pornography needs to leave my news feed.NOW" and 4 people agreed to it. A couple of hours ago, my mom logged onto HER facebook, saw my post about that little mishap, yelled at my face asking why I would put such thing. And I calmly explained to her, how I was doing what she taught me which was, "oppose what is wrong, and fight what is right." Let me tell y'all a little bit about my mom, my mom doesn't think twice, whatever is in her mind she says, she literally read that WHOLE SENTENCE WRONG. But that's not what I'm mad about, I'm mad at the fact that my mom doesn't let me have my own privacy. You might think, well you probably get ENOUGH privacy. But to to hell with that, cause that's not the case whatsoever. For all those teenagers who are reading these, you'll know what I'm talking about, for all those moms/dads/aunts/uncles etc. you're about to find out what I'm talking about. Since I'm the only child, I'm really close to my parents, even though we have our arguments and what not. But I realized the older I get, the more my parents aren't willing to let go of me. And I find it quite nice of them, cause for once I feel really supported, cared, and loved. But on the other hand, they're always bugging me about something, or someone, as if I don't tell them enough already.

The other day, my mom asked for my facebook password, which I really didn't know how to respond to, but I refused, and reasoned no, because for once it's where all my friends share all our secrets, and I hate admitting this, but my mom knows everything about my day, life, and friends. But she doesn't know what my friends are going through. Good and bad, I don't want her to know the problems my friends have because, it's better if they hear from me, cause it's nice and comforting know that, but when an adults steps into the conversation they really don't understand, and they do try to comfort us, but they tell other people, and all that stuff. I mean don't get me wrong, it's nice to tell and share other people about your life and what not, but there's also that line of PRIVACY, my parents keep crossing lines of privacy, when it comes to my friends and I. I mean I would ask for help if it gets TOO SERIOUS, but right now it's not, the only thing I can help my friends with is that mutual feeling I have with them, it's kind of comforting, ya know what I mean? I respect my parents privacy, as they respect mine, but sometimes they over do it too much. Parents here's one advice from a teenager, don't question or push your children around too much, cause if you do, they'll go to that point where they'll hide everything from you, and you'll feel like you're losing your best friend. Don't get me wrong though, I'm just a teenager,and I know now better than the veterans out there, but if there's anything I know it's how teens feel, considering that I am one.

At the end of the day, I still love my parents no matter what happens. But if there's one thing I could ask from them, is to just please, pretty please let me have my own privacy, like I'll tell you what I need to tell you, but there are times when I don't feel too comfortable mention something out of the blue. If you're reading this, just please try to let go little by little. I mean I know I'm probably overreacting over this, but for me this is a big deal, and I'm sure to those of you reading this, you're just probably shaking your heads. But on another note, this is my first time doing this little thing here, so go easy in the comments.
