    I´m 30, I Hate My Father, But I Think My Case Is The Worse Ever. My Life Is Almost Destroyed.

    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...

    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...
