    Sometimes they're frustrating,

    I don't do drugs, I don't party. So who cares about my past... I learnt my lesson. Please tell me what your except of me. After all I'm a child of cheating parents, who does drugs, who can't keep out of jail (all my dad) and a mother who just doesn't care. But yet my step-dad...

    So one day when I was sixteen,

    a friend and I skipped school and went to the coffee shop in town for a drink. That just happened to the time my dad came into town, and caught me with the "What are you doing downtown during the day?" Fast forward to the age of fifty two, and I am running down to the computer...

    I think my parents think I'm

    either gay or in love with whatever guy friend I have at the time because I don't date. I just really hate most of the guys I meet. It's not my fault that the dating pool sucks where I live.

    No parent is perfect (I know I'm not)

    but I never for a second in my entire life doubted that my parents loved me. Growing up my parents always put their children first and they did make mistakes but even their mistakes came from a place of love. Both my parents came from difficult upbringings and both were abused...

    Unconditional Love

    God created us and couldnt be with us physically to cater to our needs and shower love and affection.So what did he do? He sent a loving woman and a responsible man,to be with us,in place of him.And they are the parents. You must have heard of this many a time. I believe in this...

    I think I just figured out

    why I have such a difficult time accepting compliments. It's probably because of the verbal abuse I suffered as a child that made me feel unworthy of even the smallest of compliments.

    I love you both and feel sorry

    for having to put up with my emotional, stubborn, hateful, ungrateful, uncaring, give me what I want NOW attitude, screaming all day, pre-period self. I hate the way I've acted but dear old I only screamed over 20 times, shattered my phone, and tore the house apart.
