    That One Family Member

    Sometimes I think I'm just horrible for hating her so much. I always used to think that she was family and that I'm suppose to love her. One day I realized that I DON'T HAVE TO. I hate her as a person. She whines like child, she is so loud, she is way too quick to judge people...

    Tired Of It All

    I am usually a very patient person, and am very easy to get along with, but my family just seems to take me for granted. You can't have a conversation with them without them getting upset and angry and storming out of the room. And I'm usually not involved in the conversation...

    "get On My Nerves" Is An Understatement, They Make Me Want To Rip My Hair Out And Then Punch Them Right Dead In The Face

    Well let me start this off saying I"m not a violent person, I'm really not. I grew up with my mom being abusive, I seen her get abused by people. My family could and would be abusive towards me and my other family members. So I don't like violence, but as I've gotten older it's...

    Is It Just Me... Or Has Most Moms Lost It These Days?

    I hate when I see my mother most times. She has this really horrible way of insulting you in a nice way and make it sound like a compliment. For example: we just found out I'm 7 weeks pregnant. My folks came to visit me on my birthday last night and the first thing she says to...

    I know I'm probably going to get a lot of hate

    for this, but only because it's so truthful. I hate that stupid saying, "Family First." Oh my god that saying curdles my soul. I have been in a family where there have been, on numerous occasions, times where we can't trust each other. But that's because we are human. I don't...

    for everything...! I read an article in a cut up old cosmo. A girl who admitted she could never be close to her mother. Our experiences with our mom's seemed similar. I'm so glad i have my father.
