I Hate My Parents

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,951 People

    They lie and lie and lie to manipulate me.

    When I find out the truth they lie more and emotionally black mail me. When that doesn't work, my mother (who chooses to forget that she lied about something) becomes a saint and brings everyone in the family to chastise me. When that doesn't work she bloody harms herself...

    I Love Them For Only a Few Things

    I love my parents for only a few things, For taking care of me, for paying for my expenses and assetts, and for letting me stay in their house. Everything else about them I feel no love. I hate them. I feel like I was born to be different from them. The way that they think is...

    I can't describe in words how much mental

    violence I've experienced by my parents. It should be forbidden for some people to make children! But to be honest I don't hate them ,I feel sorry for them.

    I'm the parent that my kids hate,

    but guess what: I can't stand my kids! Teens are mean, selfish, and incredibly ignorant about virtually everything! Teens are good at video games, insults and pushing people to get what they want. Teens are fantastic at forgetting and ignoring what their stupid parents do for...

    It all started, when I was born into a world

    I mean i don't really hate my parents.

    I love them. I'm just mad at them. Because they're too controlling. They always choose my friends. I have a bestfriend, and they don't like her, because she had an issue about being pregnant and had an abortion (she's only 16), because she got fat and her body looked like she...

    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...

    My Story

    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 really tried to like my parents,

    but they were determined to make me hate them. My mom was especially bad. She was one who would rather punch you in the head than tell you she thought you did something wrong. She also called herself a Christian, which I found hypocritical.
