    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...

    Most People Don't Understand

    What I've noticed is that most people don't understand it when you tell them that you don't want to talk to your parents. I'm almost 30 years old and have had a total of two conversations with them in the last 8+ years. When I lived with my husband's grandmother for awhile she...

    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...

    Pondering On the Current Silent Treatment Towards Parents.

    I've always used a temporary silent treatment in the more serious arguments with my parents. This time I really want to maintain such situation since I'm tired of the lack of balance between happy loving parents and authoritarian/threatening financial controllers. It's...
