Dad: hopeless alcoholic<br />
"Mom": Sociopathic narcissist<br />
Answer: None of the Above
Neither, truly. Both were abusive and neglectful in their own ways. I raised myself and was closest with my younger sister. Now, I am closer to my mother. I found out that during my childhood, she was medicated for schizophrenia, and that many of her delusions/her fantasy life was a byproduct of mental illness. I am attempting to secure for her a safe retirement now.
My father,though he died almost 30 years before my mother - the extra three decades for which she lived,means that the degree of closeness with both my parents,during the different stages of my life,has been high.
Thank you,that's true - unfortunately,we don't always fully appreciate it when we are young and growing up;that realisation comes later.
wow, how interesting,<br />
neither here either, father was abusive and mother allowed it and neither knowed how to show love
it is the generation of awareness that it is abuse ;)
i can't wait to see what our children have to say about our raising of them LOL
thank you, but don't be, i learn a lot early
started my journey younger then most and happy with who i am, and with out my start, i would be me :)
everything happens for a reason.
Mom when we were young but when we grew up Well," Dad; he was always right".
My Dad, had a great Mom too but she had me late in life so when I was a teenager she was going through change of life. Not a good combination.
I was distant to both but in others eyes I have been a good daughter. I have tried my best but I was not emotionally close to my parents.
Hmm, shame on me, until my father passed away I have cried every night that I was not good enough. Live with regret.
No I didnt take it as criticism. Its long story and I live in Asian country where people consider their family and elderly important, I felt sad that I seldom talked with him properly
I am not close to either parent or any of my siblings. The cult and my parents contaminated my ability to get close to anyone. I even haven't been able to give and receive normal hugs to my kids without my whole body going into fight or flight response.
Honestly, none. I spent most of my life away from my family. But I guess my Dad.
There was a point where my own stupidity got me kicked out, but that's not really why.
They both work away in the mines. So I just spent that time with my brother and sister.
I am not particularly fond of either one.
The gap has narrowed considerably but there is still a bit of work to go and it seems to be getting better as time goes on.
Neither. I'm closes to my brother but if I absolutely have to chose I guess my mom
No they did their job they gave me life it was up to me to make it good or bad I just don't really talk to either much
