Dear grandma

I know by the time you read this I will be out of the house and you can continue on with your life, and be a lot happier. I think though there are some things you fail to see.
I know that I haven't been the greatest member of your "perfect" family; but honestly, I am not your child. We are two different people, I think the major difference is that I don't let people push me around, including you; because through the years I am the one who constantly gets all the shit in the house, and I try to manage. But I am punished for managing in my methods, but if I was treated equal, then we wouldn't have as many problems.
You have called my imperfections genetic, or simply a choice of my own; but I never had problems until the day I walked into your house. And now you're kicking me out, and telling me that I will fail at life. I'm sure you're right too, since you've done a wonderful job of "raising" me.
But as you see we have different mindsets. I am someone who doesn't need money to be happy, and then there's you. You're world constantly revolves around money(which you spend on pointless things when we have dept and bills to pay) and status. I am also adaptable, there isn't a thing that would be unfit for me. Because houses and property are material objects that can be taken in an instant, and I find that if your property is cheaper that people are less likely to want to steal it, as opposed to the more expensive version.
I guess these are the things that will render me useless in the real world. But I couldn't care less, I've never expected very much of life, never expected to live to see 40, or anything luxurious for that matter. But that's all your world revolves around, and mine is just about happiness and getting by.
But I hope that now that I'm gone that you will be happy, and that my sisters will not be contaminated by my "negativity". So I bid you farewell, and to have a good rest of your life without me in the ideal family portrait.

       Your ex-grandson
