    and I'm the girl in the flower romper in the picture. For as long as I can remember my parents have fought, it was never true love. They never slept in the same bed. I remember going to sleepovers and seeing that my friends parents sleep in the same bed and thinking how weird...

    I came from a broken family

    but I hate blaming anyone for my mishaps. I am what I am now because of my choices. I figured that once you have let go of all the blaming you can start something wonderful. We can come fron something broken and still be whole.

    I hate staying at my moms house.

    There is nothing fun to do, no shooting video games are allowed, nothing that involves making things from materials other than paper and glue, and no knives of any kind. I need a girlfriend that will cuddle with me and comfort me. I will do the same for her and more. I don't...

    So my mom took my glasses off of my face

    dropped them on the carpet and stepped on them because she said I owe her everything for spending money on me as a kid and buying me stuff I wanted and I said I don't think so.

    My mom separated from my dad

    when I was in high school. It was supposed to be time apart so that they can later fix things. Instead he lied and kept his new wife hidden from us until she was already pregnant and married to him. I had trouble coping with this when he told me at school. I remember crying and...

    I don't know if I forgive my family.

    I don't know if I have the strength to say it's ok what you did to me and my sister. I don't know if I'm accepting enough to tell you I'm ok with what you put me through I've never had it easy. My mother and father were crack addicts by the time I was born, so that starts off...

    when I was five years old thus, they separated. Sometimes I wonder the person I would've been if my father was there. My mother struggled so hard and I had to see her do things a child shouldn't see. Aside all of that I love my mother more than anything on this earth. I remember...

    I understand you. That's what you wanted.

    I don't seem able to move on either. When you're ready, I'll listen to that one. What it means to you to move on, but I wonder if others move on or forget? Forgetting is worse. I wonder how my father could forget my mother? I wonder how he could forget his kids? Don't you worry...

    who comes from happy family they don't know hard we've been through. How hard to pretend everything is ok. How hard to be strong. Just try hard to be strong because there is no choice. Try hard to ignore the pain.

    Many families have cracks.

    Some have small dents, chips, or polished scrapes. But broken families do exist. The pieces have been blown off and are so far from each other and so damaged that it would take a hell of a lot more than glue to fix. At one point, my family was nearly broken beyond repair. We...

    for everything that they did to me in the past. I actually thought I did forgive them for awhile. But tonight I'm realizing that I still can't get over it. Now they both have become like strangers to me and I'm pretty sure it's one of the worst feelings I've ever felt.
