    I'm Done

    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...

    I learned from an early age

    that my parents didn't love me, they hated me. Don't misunderstand my parents love her daughter, they just hate every characteristic that makes me... me. And they tell me that every day, every second that I’m with them. They hate the way i dress, all the thing i love 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...

    So before my parents' divorce,

    my dad kind of let me live my own life and didn't interfere unless for something serious. But after my parents' divorce, his new girlfriend seemed to convince him that he needed to be more involved in shaping the kind of person I am. Which, being involved in my life in a...

    What I do not understand,

    is why it's okay to insult your f*cking child and then expect them to respect you, as if you treated them like they f*cking deserved to be. Hell no, I'm not going to admire you as a parent if you make me feel like ****. You're supposed to bring your kid's self esteem up not...

    for me to just let it all out. I probably won't hate my parents for much longer after i write this, if I'm being honest. But I need to. This isn't going to be one of those extreme, abusing stories, but I need to share my pain I guess... Well, it all started when I was in 6th...

    and it really annoys me... They promise and they say one thing and have to break it and never finish what they say. I'm really annoyed and just want to cry and yell.... Freak if annoyed.

    My mom was and still is a drug addict.

    My dad was and still is a drug addict. When they were home they weren't. I grew up in a really bad neighborhood and when I turned 18 I left home. Haven't talked to my parents in years. My mom is currently in prison.
