An unsent letter

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

I know you both love me and give me so much, much more than I can ever give you back. I know that no matter what I do, I will still be your little tiara, forever a small girl who loves to annoy people and feel no guilty at all about it, and you both love me for that too. I know that you want me to be the best girl out here, which I am scare I can not fulfill, but knowing how much you both love me, you two should know that I’ll try my best.

I don’t know if my ‘best’ will suits your ‘best’, maybe we have different standards, which shouldn’t be a problem as long as it’s a ‘best’. But why is lately I feel that you two ask more than I ever could give you? Or was it only me being emo?

Why do I feel like I don’t want to follow all your rules anymore?
Why do I think that you two shouldn’t control me too much already?
Why do I find more different perspectives between us?
Why am I feel more rebel-ish lately?
Why do I feel like you two don’t trust me enough to grow up on my own?
Why do I feel like I am being caged with the rules lately?
Should I really remind you that I am already twenty?
It might be a silly question, but dear Daddy, should you really ask me to sleep when it’s already only 9PM?
And dear Mommy, must you really interrogate me before I hang out with my friends?

Why do I feel like Britney’s song ‘I’m not a girl not yet a woman’ and ‘overprotected’ suit me the best lately?

But really, I thank you for being such a good parents to me, maybe you just not ready yet to face the fact that I’m growing up up up and away already.

With Love,


I promise, next time I update I will inform you about how the Paper Crane project is doing, for now, all I can say is thank you for all who had sent their pictures, and for those who advertise it. :D


  1. Jakarta parents, sigh, mine are quite like that too. One thing about me : I hate curfews. They still use it anyway. Hmph. Hang in there girlie!:)

  2. Thx so much for leaving such a cute comment Tiara!♥

    I really hope the concert´ll be awesome!*-*
    I`m excited!;P

    P.S. I can understand you really well, eventhough my parents aren´t protective like parents have so much issues...

  3. What a lovely story Tiara its touched me ;)
    So sweet of you :)

  4. Awww... sweetie...parents are just like that. My parents are that way too... Sometimes it's suffocating how overprotective they can get and annoying how they nag too much... but at the end of the day, they are still our parents. =)

  5. Your parents are so nice and they are pround of you for sure. I admire you for being so honest to yourself. Be yourself and your parents will be always with you. Thank you for sharing this. Great.

  6. I remember feeling that way towards my parents, too - I think it happens to all of us. But they funny thing is that we will probably be like this to our kids too!

    By the way, I FINALLY sent your gift the other day. You should get it by the end of next week!

  7. it's a bard time being a teenager! i remember when i was about 15/16 I was often in such a bad mood with my parents, now thinking about it, it all wasn't big issues but somehow it mattered then? so i think it's normal to go through a rebel stage :)

  8. Hey! I'm back in the blogsphere!

    I'll copy this 'letter' then print it on a paper then post it to your address addressed to your parents! :))

    how's that sound to you?


thank you for coming and leaving a comment! Yay! O(≧∇≦)O
