    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...

    Just Like Me For Me

    I'm a great person and I know that, but I'm nothing like my family. In every other situation in my life I get along with people and they like me but somehow in my family no one does. At family gatherings I try to make conversation and people look at me weird, it feels like just...

    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...

    I came out of the closet four years ago.

    My very large, very religious family couldn't deal. No one has spoken to me since. My mom won't even let me see my little sister who has Down Syndrome. Some days I don't think about them even once. Other days, I am so overwhelmed with loss that I feel like I can't breathe.
