    It Can Always Get Worst!

    So it it just a few days before Christmas. I haven't had any time off because I don't know how to say No. That's fine. That's me. As if it wasn't bad enough that I am not welcome or included in the Christmas celebration at my parents house. Thanks to XY and Z, now my father has...

    Just Not Good Enough

    I am the eldest sister of four siblings. I have always been protective and my personality is such that I would suffer or do practically anything to keep my sisters safe, if needed. I have always been that way. I also like to be close to my family members. Well, "like" isn't the...

    Learning To Deal

    I come from a very large family. I've never been alone and yet I have been lonely my entire life. For some reason, unknown to me, most of my family has never accepted me. Some of them actually tell others, in the family, that if they associate with me to not bother associating...
