    Not Being Perfect Doesn't Mean Not Being Loved

    I am in my teens, and have always been considered the rebellious child of the family. Funny thing is, I'm a straight A student, fairly popular, and athletic. In most families, I would be considered the perfect child. But, in my family, I am the imperfect child. Although I...

    The Failure

    Everyone in my family seems so perfect. Or they get pity for their imperfection. I just get yelled at. I get talkedabout to my grandmother. "Why is she so difficult?" "I can't figure out why she has to be like that!" I heard the conversation. I wasn't supposed to, albeit, but I...

    I'm Constantly Overshadowed By My Successful Older Brother...

    But I always have the last laugh when I remember that he's running himself ragged and going into a field he doesn't enjoy. In all, he may be much more successful, but I'm still happier.

    My Family Is Evil

    Everything they do dirty towards me, I have to suffer, & it's not fair. My family hates me so much that they'd rather me dead. They feel like I don't deserve anything good. I have to try to move away from all of them.
