I Hate My Parents

    But do I? Should I? My dad shoved me around a

    bit when I was a kid, as I may have already mentioned. He had awful anger issues. While now, being hit doesn't happen as often, I get emotionally abused... I think. I doubt myself. I TRY not to believe that I am stupid, lazy, selfish, and fat. I TRY to believe that I am not...

    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...

    Really don't know if you could call them

    "parents". More like the guy who got the woman pregnant who gave birth to me. Both were and still are drug users and were arrested several times. My "father" was in jail for robbery when I was born. My "mother" is currently in prison for assault on a police officer. Haven't seen...

    I'm becoming depressed.

    Everything I do just isn't enough for my parents. I maintain a 4.0 gpa. I'm on the junior varsity lacrosse team. I babysit my neighbors. I've never done anything bad in my life. My brother smokes weed, he fights in school, he's gotten in school suspension 2 times this year. He...

    Not exactly both but mostly my dad.

    Everything I do is just not up to his standard. It's like I have to learn things the way he do. And honestly, I want to be my own person. I want to make mistakes and learn. And he always discourage everything I like. He forbids me to join competitions I've been dying to join...

    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...

    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...

    It isn't easy to open up to complete strangers

    I hate my parents so much.

    My dad mentally and physically abused my sister and I growing up. He would yell and scream at me if I didn't do something fast enough. Sometimes he would get really drunk and pick fights with me.(keep in mind at this point I was in the 6th grade) he would make things up, and...

    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.
