Can't Take It

It's brutal. All I ever want to do is sit in my room and blare my music, but I'm scared. It could get violent, just like before. Who knows what could happen?! So I sit there and listen, listen to all the name calling, the yelling, the mumbling, my brother crying, my heart beating fast and loud, and then my crying. My brother and I both want them to get a divorce, and we always yell at them to stop. But it seems that they don't even care, maybe afterwords, then they apologize and say that it's going to be okay. But it's all lies, it's going to be the same the next night, and the night after that. And it's always about the stupidest things, about supper or what show is on tv or even not knowing where something is. It has scarred me emotionally so bad, and I can't take anymore.

Mine too. After reading stories in this group I found out a lot of people have the same problem as me. I came to a conclusion that maybe some people just can't stand to look a the face of same person all day for years, or binded by responsibility such as marriage or parenting. Just saying, but if these kind of people didn't get married in the first place, all of the problem of parent fight or abuse wouldn't exist. Be strong and keep in mind that it will eventually end. Anything will.

I am so sorry. I want you to know that my life is the same as you. I don't know what to do. I try not to care about them and relax, but it is not possible for me. Right now they are not talking to each other because they had a fight yesterday.

Ignore them. Or use reverse psycology. Like tell them how much you hate this family and wished you were never born and wished that they divorced. They might feel so that they might try to change. Or just try to talk to them and tell them how much it's affecting you. (just suggestions, might not work though)

My parents argue a lot too. They would argue over the stupidest things. At one time, I felt really depressed about it. All their anger was starting to sink into me. I was very short-tempered. But, slowly, I began to realize there really was nothing I could do. It was their life,not my life. So, I decided not to let their stupid arguments take over my life. I felt happier. If you think your life is bad, others' life are even worse.If you think you are unfortunate, others are more unfortunate than you. Always be grateful.
