    My father abused me when I was young.

    That's why my parents are divorced. I still can't get over the unhealthy guilt I feel over their divorce. Nor can I undo the trams I've been through.

    Maybe this is just me... When someone tries to hurt or offend me are only the people that are close to me. I don't really care what people say about me when I don't have respect for them. I brush it off fast and move on. When I'm hurt. It may have been something done or said buy...

    I'm really passive and soft. But little things will turn him into this mean raging man. The rest of the time he's super affectionate. Often inappropriately so in public. If I don't feel super kissy because I'm tired or stressed from school or busy working on something, he can...
