    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

    I would like to start at the beginning.

    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...

    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...
