I need help to be who i really am, a person with some personality and dignity, someone who can be resposible and independant. I'm sore from the inside but somehow noone seems to notice or care. My parents are so strict and i really hate that. I want my freedom!!

I'll bet you're about 17, right? Or maybe a little younger. It's normal to want to be independent at your age; it's good! It means you're becoming an adult. You're parents are strict because they love you and they want to protect you. If you parents will let you, get a part time job. Save the money you earn. Finish high school. Then use the money to go to college or get a job. Then you can move out. The more adult you act, the more freedom you can ask your parents for because you can say, "I'm always very good. I always act responsibly. If you let me ______________________, I promise I won't get into trouble."
