    Do You Feel This Way?

    I do love and respect my family but sometimes they get on my last nerve and I have to get away from them before I kick someone's butt. Do you ever feel this way?

    I absolutely love my family.

    But really, does family put each other down on purpose? My family has a tendency to always pick on me and make jokes, I get it. It's a joke most of the time, but I have feelings and sometimes what they "joke" about really does get to me. For example today a cousin came over, and...

    I'm trying my best and it's not just enough

    for them. Last August 2015, we discovered that my grandmother got diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I wasn't there at a time since I was having work/vacation in japan. The minute I arrived home, they just shoved all her problems unto me. I of course accepted them, since I was the...

    My family has put far too much pressure on me

    that I feel like I am about to explode. I have my parents and 2 siblings (17) and they can not see eye to eye. My parents are immigrants from Eastern Europe so they have a completely different view of the western world in comparison to my siblings who were born & raised in...

    I love my family, I really do.

    I have three kids of my own, my fiance has a daughter. Here's the problem. I love to death, but I have a extremely hard time with his daughter. She's 7 and both parents admit she's a sociopath. We've been working on her mother to get her into therapy. Nothing. She lies...

    They Irk Me to No End, Yet I Am Still the Go to Person In the Family.

    If the family wants something, I am the person without fail that will be there to find the solution. I pride myself on being the one that tries to fix things. I am forever looking out for others. It is my greatest attribute, yet also my biggest bane. It gets me into trouble at...

    I have run away several times.

    The most recent was on Thanksgiving. My mom and brother was over at my place and I was cooking the meal. My mom made one of her nasty soul-crushing comments. So, I had to leave- food cooking on the stove and all. I didn't care; I couldn't function. I was gone till after the sun...

    Ok. So today I met them at the park

    because my sister flys out tonight and I wanted to visit and all that mushy ****. My niece and I were playing Uno and my sister walks over, sits down and kind of whispers "you have a hickey on your neck" and I'm like "I know..?" (I'm married by the way, I'm pretty sure hickeys...
