    Physical There But Never Emotional Available

    Let’s start at the beginning. As a child I was all sweetness and sugar coated, not a evil bone or a single thought of badness in my body. I really mean that, I was the kid who used to sit in tears in the school yard so upset cause the others kids were pulling legs from the...

    Making Our Own Family Connections

    I grew up thinking that I wasn't good enough or worthy of a good family or true friends. I was alone, lonely, and self hatred had gotten to me. I need to be nurtured, cared for and listen too. I just never wanted to be accepting of that when I was young and in to my later teen...

    I Don't Like My Dad.

    I grew up in an abusive home. My dad would hit my mom and she'd put up with it. My dad would beat my brothers with his belt while they screamed and so forth. He'd kill animals for no reason. Once he killed a kitten of mine by throwing out the door as hard as could. He threatened...

    I Don't Hate Them, But...

    I don't hate anyone, but I have no use for my family at all. They have caused me nothing but pain and grief in my childhood, and the older I get, the more clear it is that they care for no one except themselves. I cut them out of my life, and I am so happy to have done so. I...

    I don't like my family

    and they do not like me . I used to want their love and attention and every now and then I yearn for it now. But the cold reality is they do not like me and therefore I have to protect myself by not liking them. A wall has to be brought up. I have bad memories of abuse and so...

    I Love Them, But I Don't Like Them.

    As I become older and more aware of my own perception about things, I have come to realize I can't stand my family. I love them of course, but only in the sense that they are my blood and they are all I have. However, there are few members that are really ruining my wanting to...

    I once told my mother I self harm. It took all my courage. She didn't look up from what she was doing and just called me an idiot. It hurt so much. Yet, she wonders why I never tell her anything.
