2 weeks ago I got caught shoplifting makeup at Target. Im 18, so they didn’t call my parents. They just took my information down and let me go thankfully.
Today I got sent a civil letter that I knew was coming, I was going to pay for it. I made the dumb decision so I was willing to take the consequences and pay. I did not tell my parents this whole time. I reflected on my dumb decision for the past 2 weeks, started attending bible study and started forgiving myself, praying and etc. Of course my parents got the letter today and flipped out. They’re only mad b/c I didn’t tell them when it happened. I wanted to deal with this on my own. They are completely disappointed in me. I am too but they are not talking to me and would not let me attend the concert that I was going to go to tomorrow. (Im fine with that honestly, guess I deserve it) My only thing is, at this point, my parents won’t let me go anywhere. They want me home and to sit in my pity and dwell on my mistakes. Iv’e already accepted everything for what it is. I do not dwell on my past, I learned my lesson and moved on from the situation. Idk what to do, what to say to them. Help?
