    What Happened?

    I'm a sophomore in high school. I have a part-time job, get straight A's, and I always do the chores my mom asks me to do. Life was great, but ever since I got back from Arizona, visiting my dad, things haven't been the same. My mom and my stepdad ignore me, but then turn around...

    I feel like my mom really doesn't understand me.

    I can't open up to her and she makes alot of assumptions about me. I wish we could have the same relationship her and my older sister have 😕

    Not What They Planned For!

    I think my mom and dad made a common mistake when planning to have me:  they expected a perfect little clone of themselves.  Instead they got me.  I may be a lot of things, but a clone of my parents is NOT one of them!!!  Both Mom and Dad are crazy smart and...

    What Did I Do Wrong?

    I love you more than my own life. I thought you loved me. What happened? I grew up with two older sisters and my mom. Dad was ALWAYS at work, so mom raised us girls by herself. That was okay, though. She's the best. It stayed that way for a really long time. Like, until I was...
