    Family Issues Forced Me To Grow Up To Fast

    I've never gotten along with most of my family. My mother and I are pretty close but we're just to different to get along all the time. My Dad is an alcoholic and always brings the wrong kind of people home. My sister who is one year older than me always has and still does treat...

    My father's side of grandparents are.

    .. quite a character. They are farmers, but far from 'nice country folks'. They can be really greedy and ignorant, and I was shunned when I was kid because I'm a granddaughter instead of a grandson. (Seriously. What century do they think it is, I do not know.) They were not...

    Who Doesn't?

    There are just times where it feels as though one side of the family is against the other, and I really hate that feeling. I don't like getting tangled up in family drama, so I steer clear of the he-said-she-said messes that some of my relatives leave around.

    I don't have anything resembling a close relationship with any member of my family, but I have the most resentment towards my mother, likely made worse by the fact that I never say when someone's upseting me. People are amazed when I tell them that, at 18 years old, I've never...

    My sister and I are trying to get back what my

    mother stole from us when my dad died. She ruined our family when she did that. We were in his will to get his life insurance, and my mom stole it. Now that we're confronting her for what she did wrong she's saying that we ruined our family and she's heartbroken. So messed up.

    My main problem at the moment's with my dad.

    It's not a prevalent one since I don't really talk about it. But his political views are too drastic for me and it irritates me when he says things like "They deserve to die" or "They're 100% guilty" when there isn't enough evidence to back it up. It just doesn't make any...
