The bottom line is I felt like I've been a good girl but I still have the same priviledges as my ten year old sister, even though I'm turning sixteen. When I asked my sister for backup she said that even though I'm the perfect daughter I don't "act my age". The thing is I'm a very mature person, I'm understanding and I don't throw a hissy fit when people say no. When I told her this the first rebuddle (If I spelled that correctly) that came out of her mouth is if I dressed my age then people would treat me my age.
This deeply upsetted me... Lolita for me is bringing everything I love to the outside. Showing people who I really am. It doesn't affect the way I act, and I'm deeply upset that it affects what people (especially my own family) think of me. I'm still the same person inside, I've always been this way I just didn't have any other way to show it until I found lolita.
If you have had similar experiences please feel free to post a comment or if you have advice I would greatly appreciate it.
Stay strong lolitas. <3
