I Hate My Parents

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,017 People

    Now, I realize that life with my parents

    for me isn't nearly as bad as some of the stories of abuse and neglection that others suffer through. I probably sound like a total loser and complete wimp for posting this, but I have to. I don't really understand what makes me so bad. I go to one of the most prestigious high...

    My parents seem uncaring of my own wants

    and dreams. Almost as if I'm just a robot to be programmed. They expect high grades in maths and science subjects yet none of them are my passion. My passion is to be a gamer, sure it's not a great passion but doing something I want to do for once is all I can ask for. Since I...

    it's just they make it hard for me. They don't understand how I feel, they don't understand me. I am never going to get married. Never. I refuse. My mom always talk about the future me as a wife and how I am going to be a rude, disrespectful wife/ daughter in law. HOW MANY TIMES...

    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 sometimes feel a little immature about hating my parents. Its so cliched, so ordinary, so.... adolescent. But there is no other way to word it. I've never been an affectionate person and my family is not affectionate to one another, but I never hated them growing up. It was...

    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 want to run away. They have been emotionally

    and verbally, and occasionally physically abusing me for the past two years. They say they love me and I know they do, but I just can't take the stress and pain. I wish I could leave, but I can't because I'm too young and don't want to go into foster care.

    Parents want control,
