    Just...alone.

    I'm the youngest, I have an older sister. My parents fight all the time, it's a wonder they're still together. They always complain about how I shut myself out from them, when the truth is I've just given up trying to be part of it. I tried talking to them and they just ignore me...

    Treated Like Dirt All the Time

    I am so tired of trying.  I am let down over and over, by my family!  I make all the moves, they just ignore my efforts and don't appreciate it - worse, they insult me, or try to control me.  I cut them all off and started to feel a lot better.  The fact is...

    I Don't Need Them

    My family has done nothing except hurt me and use me. I don't need them, I have made it just fine without them for years. I call myself an orphan even though most of my family is still around. I'm not like them.

    Blended

    Holidays are always depressing when you have to choose  between spending them alone or choosing where to go. Whatever sense of family i have, I have to create because there would be nothing else if I didn't.
