    What Did I Do?

    I feel alienated from my family. We were close growing up and even into adulthood, but for the last couple of years, everyone has moved on with their own lives. I feel that I am excluded from everything. And now, I can't even see most of their posts on FB. My sisters and I were...

    Is Abandonment Genetic?

    Obviously, as children my sister and I rarely got along. I was the youngest. I, of course, did my share of picking. She printed off my diary for my parents, went through my purse, and hacked into my email. We were never the greatest of friends, even when she finally left for...

    They Hate Me And I Don'T Know Why

    Ever since I was a kid, I was always considered to be "the good child" (or goody-two-shoes) by my cousins and later, siblings. I have two younger sisters. As I got older, and I mean late high school and university, I realized that I was tired of being a doormat and saying yes to...
