    The Holidays

    I love Thanksgiving but have a hard time dealing with extended family. Maybe there's something wrong with me but it totally annoys me that my cousins, uncles, aunts, etc. always expect to come to my house or my parents' house for holiday dinners. They pretty much invite...

    I don't know how much longer I can stand being

    at home. I'm not a whiny brat who cries when I don't get everything I want, I've grown up in an extremely dysfunctional family. My dad cheated on my mom in 2007-2008 I was around 9/10, but she's a 'big Christian' and thinks divorce is wrong no matter what-I mean that literally...

    The Bible Thumper Aunt

    You know that one aunt that tries to force change on you? Well...that's my aunt. It starts off with this: my aunt has a huge influence on the family even though she is not the oldest. How? She uses her religion to control and manipulate her own family. When I was younger, she...

    Mom

    My mom is now 74 years old. She has never been a very happy person and she's getting worse the older she get. She is very negative and likes everyone around her to be miserable too. She is getting very difficult to deal with.

    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.

    My grandfather told me he lost a grandson

    because I told him that I don't want to be religious. He further told me that he would hunt me down and kill me if I ever turned to Islam. I don't know why.. (Okay I do)... But that somewhat bothers me.
