    I cannot help where I came from,

    and I am not like them at all. Yet people do not accept me because of my family. Oh well, you can't win them all.

    Since long I knew there was tension

    and my home was near breaking. My parents didn't get along too well, but they both cared for me and my brother. Now at my early 20s, It's gotten bad enough that I have become the central hub of all their complaints about one another. Sentences like "Your mom will drive me...

    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.

    Do I haunt your dreams the way you have hunted

    mines? Do you wake up frantic from night rest worrying that I got the courage to finally tell? Do you regret it everyday like I have I wish I could ask you these questions

    Also, today was my dad's bday.

    We didn't celebrate it at all. His bday came at a time when they were still arguing so my mom didn't cook anything for him. He spent the day pretty much alone. Our family's always like this though. I wish we'd come together at least on someone's bday, but it never happens. I was...

    Life is not about who hurt you

    and broke you down. It's about who was always there and who made you smile again.

    My parents didn't split up

    until I was in my early twenties, but I knew since I was six that they didn't belong together. Staying together for the kids is a terrible idea. Better to have two peaceful homes than one that's a constant battlefield.

    I started reading a book a week ago

    Before you ever even consider having a child

    you should be ready to handle a disabled child, you should be ready to handle twins, you should be ready to handle a gay child or a trans child. Because if you're not ready for your child to be anything other than one straight, cis, able bodies and able minded child, you're...

    Okay, I have always wondered

    who my father is, and to say the word "dad/father" sounds so strange to me because I grew up without him. It's been 16 years of my life and I don't have any information about him. I could ask my mom but I'm not comfortable talking to her about these kind of things.

    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.
