    My Story

    My parents are stupid in their way of thinking. They never approved of me having my boyfriend who was from another race. When I got pregnant that was that. They refused to accept me. First, because I was not married. Secondly, because I left University during my last year when I...

    Firstly, I am not writing this to look

    I live with my parents

    because I don't have my own place, I don't have my own place because I can't get a job. I can't get a job because I live in the country with no car. Even though I had no way of getting to a job I'm still applying. But as always the closest town is super small and no one is...

    Whatever I do is never enough.

    So yesterday was Parent-Teacher Day and the last day of school and my last day as a Year 10 student. I was feeling very optimistic about it as my grades have all improved tremendously. The final term was in no way easy as 5/8 of the subjects I took had two exam papers and they...

    Destructive

    My parents have always put me down. My father especially. Back in my middle school years, I became so depressed, I considered suicide. I considered just ending it all. I was called worthless, idiotic, stupid, and many other things. It hurt. I had zero self-confidence. I never...

    My Parents Don't Care About Me

    I honestly believe, after 18 years of experiencing pure hell, that my parents just simply do not care about me. I've always tried so hard to please them, but nothing works. Anything I do or say is turned around onto me. If my mother and I have a disagreement and I try to talk...

    I Can Finally Say That I Hate My Parents

    At this point, I can honestly say I don't love them anymore. I used to. I used to love them and wonder why they didn't love me like other parents loved their children. I used to think they were just so horrible because of me, that my very presence caused them to behave like that...

    I'm starting to lose my mind.

    I hate my mom. Since I've been a little kid that she embarasses me in front of the rest of the family, saying inappropriate things about me. She used to say that I used to compete with her for atention, and she plays the victim all the freaking time. She acts like a kid, sulking...

    My parents unknowingly make my life miserable

    for me. They do many things that cause me grief but the main thing is that they constantly don't trust me to do things myself.. And when they don't let me do things because "they love me enough to say no if it means that'll keep me safe." But it's a freaking lie.. That I hurt...

    Parents and Stupid Justifications!

    I cant stand my parents. I have spent years pushed in the shadows of the anger trying my best to compare to my siblings that got it all, including the ones of no blood relation. I never did anything wrong but be born with a mouth of honesty, to much for my parents to handle. I...

    So much. No matter what Im judged by them.

    Everybody asks me why I have such a low self esteem and Im quite sure its because for my parents I was never good enought. Or they made fun of me for being bullied. ''You're such a **** up, no wonder, you barely have friends.'' - My father.

    My mother is a really mean person.

    She doesnt love me. When i talk about something good that i did i can see the resentment in her eyes. She tells me i'm a bad person and when no one is around she emotionally abuses me. My dad doesnt want to offend her or for her to argue with him so he doesnt defend us.
