    Specially My Husband

    He is so demanding, yesterday I told him I am tired of all his orders and bossiness, and I don't have to do any of the things I am doing, and if I am doing anything it's my choice. He said I know, but if you do anything it has to be my way!

    None of them get along

    and I seem to get stuck in the middle quite a bit. It is so hard to maintain relationships with people who refuse to even try to get along.
