So my parents like to take me on "vacations." (If you can call them that)
They force me to go with them on these trips to places I don't want to go.
Why? Because they think it's unhealthy for me to stay inside too long.
(Because apparently being an introvert is a disease)
So I went to this water park. Sounds fun, right? Not for me. I was tired and wanted to sleep the entire time because I could never get to sleep on the shitty hotel beds.
I could do nothing but watch Netflix or Youtube while tired for hours and everybody else was asleep.
That kind of horrible experience is not worth it just to ~hang out with the family~ or ~familee memoreez~
But my mom and dad just say "I'm being negative." "Look at the positive."
I'm very picky with beds so switching to a different bed is a death sentence to sleep.
I tried to tell my parents this would happen but they just say "You need to go outside" "You need to ~join the family~" even though I would rather be disappointed I didn't go than have a sleepless night at a place I don't want to go to.
A vacation for me would be to stay home.
I know this might be selfish or whatever but I don't ever go to public places. There's no reason for me to. I only know people mostly because they're my relatives. Not friends.
While food at a place can be nice I don't enjoy having these stupid small talk conversations with people I don't really know, and having nothing to do.
I'm 17 and my mom says I'm old enough to stay at home so it's not that lol
They only force me to go certain places occasionaly. (One of the arguments they use is they don't force me enough -_-)
I would really like to hear other people's opinions about this.
My mom says I'm becoming a "hermit."
Should I force myself to go outside and to public places more?
I'm shy and socially awkward so it's hard to talk to other people.
