    He did it again last night.

    I wasn't expecting him to, I really wasn't. I thought, I hoped, that it was only a one off. That he'd maybe just go back to the hitting, the physical and verbal abuse. I didn't want him to do it again. I've lost my virginity at 15 years old. Had s*x twice. Both nonconsensual...

    My dad slapped my sister

    so hard that she almost went to the ground... She didn't want my mother or me to do anything. My mom also didn't want me getting angry because he would just get angry even more. So what does she want me to do forget that it happened? She even tried to justify him... I eventually...

    I feel like high school is a total waste of

    time. I was going to drop out and start college so in the next year I'd already be in uni, but then I got few people who persuaded me not to. Now I feel like I'm stuck because I don't believe I'm learning anything of use. But sometimes I also feel like I'm just complaining!
