    Liar Parents - Can't Trust Them

    I have to be honest, I don't trust my parents anymore. That's a sorry state of affairs isn't it? You know, 'trust noone' never seems to extend to your own family. Let me explain why. About four years ago, one of my parents was diagnosed with a genetic problem that affected parts...

    My parents are not getting along very well lately. Its been like this for about 2 years, well from what i experienced. When they were first married my dad lied about smoking from my mom. I don't know long he kept that up, i just know it happened. Then about 5 years ago i found...

    I can't trust my parents with my secrets.

    They lie to me, constantly. I know ... they might do it to protect me or whatever, but why lie? I guess they think I can't handle the truth. Yes, I might get hurt and/or cry, but that's life, right? Every time they find out something bad about me, they find out by someone else...

    I Just Can't Trust Them Anymore...

    My story may not seem nearly as bad as some of the other stories in this group, but it still profoundly affects me on a daily basis, and I feel I need to share my opinions with someone. My mother is the dominant person of the household. Everything she says counts, regardless of...

    I come from a broken home.

    As a teen, I remember epic fights between my mom and dad. My dad was constantly yelling at my mom and my mom was sleeping around on him. Until recently, I had taken a moral stance on that relationship by siding with my father because after all the bible appears to weigh...

    My parents are nice and understanding. They say they enjoyed having me around when I head back home, but that hurts me. I don t trust them, and their behaviour now is confusing. Maybe they like the young adult me better than the kid I used to be.I feel a sense of betrayal in all...

    Parents Didn't Tell Me Something Really Important.

    So last month my Mom told me that my Dad was going away on a retreat, implied that it was all voluntary, and all she really told me was that it was in Utah somewhere. I've been kind of busy lately with school, so I didn't really press for details. Today I needed to borrow my...

    Liars, Liars, Liars, Liars.....

    I'm 27 years old and I've never lived outside my parents' house. They won't let me. Every time I make a move to actually have a life of my own, my mother and father sabotage it. Obviously they're very unhealthy people, but here I am stuck with them. I'm in college now and I'm...

    Ok, so this is probably not a big deal for any of you. Do your parents smoke? Mine don't. They PROMISED. The other night my uncle was over, and I went into the kitchen for some food, they were all ready to go out into the backyard. My mom seemed so jumpy, so I snuck out the...

    I love my parents, but our relationship is not

    as good as it can be because I cannot trust them emotionally. During a tumultuous time in my life they betrayed me emotionally, shamed me and made feel worthless when I had no one else in my corner, and since then I do not share many personal details of my life with them...

    Sorry Guys....i Just...can't...

    My father doesn't care about, love, isn't proud of, or acknowledges me in any serious, postive way. He has never given any implification whatsoever that he is either, and has never said anything. How hard is it to say, "I'm proud of you?" or maybe manage a, "That's great", just...
