    Hard-knock Life

    Things were pretty rough growing up. For as long as I could remember, my parents never had lots of money. We were always financially unstable. There were times we were evicted, had to live with others, and once we had to live in a motel room. I've had to grow up faster than what...

    I really hated being a kid.

    My English is not really good. I apologize for that. I don't really have anyone to tell this that's probably why I'm posting it here. I never met my father. My mom got pregnant in her teens and gave birth to me. She wishes I was never born. I was abused as a kid. At first I...

    You know, growing up wasn't easy.

    It's not easy for a lot of people. My parents kept taking my brother and I in and out of schools like they changed their clothes. We moved constantly due to them owing money to the dealers that fed their addiction. When I was 5, I remember living in this apartment that got...

    I Always Really Denied It.

    From about age 6 to when I left for college I spent my life along side my family living on social programs. I love my parents and don't hold resentment for them just maybe frustration. I can remember my parents smoking weed (yea I know could have been wayyy worse) forever. I don...

    Noone Knows.... Its Time To Let It Out

    Hey everyone out there! I am not typically a whiner nor do I air my proverbial dirty laundry out for other people. I have friends who have known me for years who have no idea what I have been through nor do I want them to. Not because these people are horrible backstabbers or...

    I Want To Tell You A Bit About My Childhood

    Yeah I had a rough childhood then again

    who hasn't? I hate to talk about it or even think about it. My entire life has been affected by my past. I can't have a normal relationship, I can't have sex without remembering what happened in the past, and u can barely focus when I'm in class. I don't know what to do anymore

    I hate when I'm finally about you catch some

    sleep, and the flashbacks start, along with the tears. I haven't cried about this in such a long time, and now it's all coming back to me all at once. I hate them. I hate these tears. I hate it.
