    Hate..hate...hate It

    Before I actually loved family get togethers because I got along with my family. It was so much fun.  But now, my cousins and I are so different. I don't even want to be by them. To add, my family has little feuds going on. It just adds to the tension.  Family...

    My father & his wife really like to have guests

    over at their house, either with my brothers, or her children, or her friends or family members. Before I moved out of their house, I was always forced to attend their get-togethers, and I have always hated them. I am an extremely private person. I get anxiety when I am in...

    Its my grandpa's birthday

    and I'd love to go. He was a good man and always nice to me. I actually live with him so I don't have a choice. It's a rather long and complicated story. The thing that bugs me about it is I know my aunt and uncle will be there. I can't stand them at all. They are completely...

    Is There Anything Worse Than A Black Sheep?

    I am the black sheep. And it's strange because the only thing that sets me apart is my sexual orientation. I never have and don't do drugs, drink, smoke, had unprotected sex, had children. I'm 23 and I'm happily settled down with my partner of 5 years in about a month. So, we...
