    I have an older sister

    that verbally abuses me daily. I know it's normal for sisters to argue, but I never say anything back. Sometimes some sarcasm but she's just cruel. Calling me worthless and useless and trying to control how much I eat

    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.

    Today, I had to wear a dress.

    Ew. It was for the Easter service at our church. Everyone in my family who saw me in the dress were like: "Oh, you're so adorable!" "You look so cute!" It felt like they were saying: "Wow, you actually CAN be a girly girl!" Needless to say, as my mother, my grandma, and I (my...

    It's official. I want my grandfather to move out

    and get his own apartment again. I can't deal with him here, up my ***, in my business, every single ******* day. He is driving me in sane. we fight every day. And he's always the one who starts it. I think he forgets this isn't his house. He doesn't have a say in anything that...

    My grandmother is so controlling

    and never trust anyone to do anything right. Also very manipulative and talk down to others. I was raised to respect my elders, but it have been a tough battle with her. Just recently I learned to just surrender and let her have it even if she turned black and blue in the face...

    The Holidays

    My mom has no respect

    for my privacy. She doesn't respect my sister's privacy either, and she is 30 years old now. My mom will act like a completely different person around other people and family but I think my sister and I are the only people who know who she really is. I feel that if everybody...

    I feel like I can't have opinions in my family

    because apparently I'm too young and inexperienced to have an opinion. It's like everything I say doesn't matter because I'm just a stupid kid who doesn't understand how the real world works no matter what I do. I can't have my own opinions if they don't match his, because...

    Even though it's an established fact

    that I hate humanity entirely, there is something about certain family members - they who I shall not name - that irks me in a entirely different, and perhaps, more wrath-inducing way. (warning: r-r-r-rant ahead) There is a weird hierarchy within this so-lovely family of mine...

    My dad just never admits he's wrong.

    It can be about education, the road, or even school but no matter how good reasoning I give him he doesn't listen!

    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.
