I got in a shitload of trouble this weekend. My parents wouldn't let me go to a party so I made up a flier saying there was a lock in at my school and gave it to my parents. They completely believed it and I went to my friends party but had a great time. The only reason I got caught was because I got in a car accident the next morning and lied to them about having a passenger. I'm legally not allowed to drive anyone for 150 days because I just got my license. Because I lied about that, they wanted to see what else I lied about and called the school and found out I made everything up. My Dad is furious with me, what I did made my mom mentally and physically sick. She thinks I'm an alcoholic, druggy and I'm headed down the wrong path. Now they don't know whether to believe me or not. Like if I say I'm staying afterschool to get some help (when I really am), they won't know if they should believe me or not. I understand that. I'm going to college next year and my parent's think I won't be able to handle being on my own. I konw I definitely can, but they just don't trust me. How can I earn my trust back? THey don't believe anything I say anymore so its hard to get them to believe me. Would I gain the trust back by staying home on the weekends and doing nothing, or by going out with my friends and not lying to them? Even if I don't lie, they won't believe me and I really can't prove what I did. Trust me, I've done some shitty ass things in the past to do stuff my parents wouldn't do. I'm a bad son, I know, please don't remind me. Every other time I got introuble with my parents, if it was for drinking, smoking pot, lying, shoplifting, I always just took the punishment and didn't think twice about it, didn't even have any guilt, thats why I got introuble again. But this time, it really hit me. After seeing what I did to my mom and how much she suffered because I fucked up, I will definitely change my ways. I had a baseball game a few days ago and was the first player there. I just sat on the bench waiting, and started thinking of what I did to my parents and started crying. I hate myself for all the trouble I caused them, but they don't think I learned this time, they think it's just like all the other times and I'll get introuble again, but I won't. This time is different, they just don't know it. I want them to be able to trust me again, I just don't know how to earn it back, they question every single move I make now and I don't blame them after what I did.
