    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...

    When I read stories about people that hate family, in many cases there are physical violence involved. It´s definitely not my case. My father was succeeded business man. In my childhood he treated me very well, he NEVER used violence on me. But, when I was a teenager, I fell...

    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...
