Through this day, the lesson was learned. It's time for all the childish bullshit to end. I'm 18 now. No more looking to Mommy for help when I don't know what to do. Time to stand on my own, there won't always be someone there to help me. No relying on Mommy and Daddy when things get tough.

Suck it up.

Deal with it.

Welcome to life.
