    My Biggest Weakness

    One of my biggest weakness has been my mother. She always knew the words to say to make me feel bad about myself. She knew how to tear me down and made me become hard on myself. We would argue all the time, yet I still love her and want her approval so bad that its costing me my...

    The Ultimatum

    My parents and I haven’t really spoken to each other since I moved back with Corrina. They weren’t too happy about that. With time I thought they’d grown to accept the situation. However, deep down I think they could never approve me being in a lesbian relationship...

    When i was growing up I must of seen my dad hit my mom at least a dozen times from the ages of 5 to 16. These were never full on beatings but the lead up was always an argument that my dad finished with a hitting my mom. Sometimes she was pregnant even. No she never lost a child...
