I don't want to show my essay to my parents
I have written my college essay and it actually happens to be about my Dad but I don't want my parents reading it. It's pretty personal and I am not super close with my parents and I tend to get embarrassed easily. I really don't want them reading it and thinking anything of it because I know I will be super embarrassed by them saying it's "cute" or they "love it" or anything like that. Not that I don't love their support I am just too shy. I just really don't want them to read it and I don't know what to do.9 replies
