    The Sick Games Mothers Play

    For me sometimes writing is cathartic, not sure if this is going to be much help but I have been wanting to write this since four thirty this morning. I woke up to many thoughts, the one preeminent thought was that I do not really belong to this family. I thought that perhaps...

    Only To The Ones That Speak To Me.

    my oldest sibling, well i dont care to speak with him. i'd rather not have any contact from him ever. my two step brothers are my world and i am super close with them. and the others that 'consider' me their sister (obviously not biological) but still we r obviously close.

    My Brother Hated Me (His Little Sis)

    My brother is around one year older than me and would always pick on me and beat me up and make fun of me. I always loved him, idolized him even but he always resented me. He was a "rambunctious" child to say the least and in junior high and high school he became popular but not...

    My Mom Drove Me And My Brother Apart.

    Even when we were kids, my brother and I were never close. We had sort of an 'uneasy truce'. Our home life was less than perfect, and we were in it together; we couldn't afford to hate each other! I accepted years ago that we'd never be good friends or anything, but I always...
