    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...

    I'Ve Had It With Her.

    I've had problems with my cousin for YEARS! She would read your Facebook statuses, then tell her mom what you posted. Anything personal you post on there, her mother would call & question. She's done this to my four other cousins & they blocked her. Well, I was her recent victim...

    There are definitely people in my family that I'd rather not have to deal with. Mainly, my godparents, who also double as my aunt and uncle, and their children. They are so alien compared to the rest of my family. When everyone is having fun, my uncle, who has a really OCD sense...

    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've always felt like I've had a disconnection when it came to people in general in the physical world, but my family in particular, the ones whom I currently live with before I ship off to University seem to be driving me up the wall more so than usual, I guess after finishing...

    I like them sometimes, but more often then not, I don't. My mother is overbearing and it is about 25 years to late for her to finally realize "oh! I should talk to me children and care for them and be...you know....A PARENT". When I was little my mother worked two jobs, then...

    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.
