    I just don't feel like I have my place in my

    family. Now it's even worse since I live alone when I go to university. When I come back to my parents house, I can't do anything, I don't feel that I have my place here anymore.

    for dinner again, except when both my sister and my cousin goes too. I dont care if it's the best food in the world. There's way too much negativity in the house and what upsets me is that my parents don't even bother try working on their problems.

    Can I just say, parents don't know everything.

    The moment you try and defend yourself, they automatically tell you that you don't know anything. It's ridiculous that parents can yell at us, but we can't yell at them. They don't let us explain why we did something, they just assume.
