A Ticking Time Bomb

There's a ticking time bomb in the house. My siblings including my mom are actually afraid of him to be honest. I wouldn't exactly put it as trembling in fear like how you see them in horror movies, more like afraid of when he's going to 'explode' next.

In the family, he physically abused my mom and I only. Growing up I endured multiple beatings over minor issues. Same goes for my mom. We came to the conclusion that he has lost his way and even attempted to seek relatives for help. We did not enclose too much detailed information to them because most of them wouldn't understand our situation. It is not as simple as it seems. My mom isn't capable enough to support the 3 of us financially; although she is a working mom.

Of course there were times when things got wayyyyyyyyyyy out of hand. We launched a police report before, even contacted a women's rights organisation. It obviously did not do much good because every 'accusation' needs proof, or evidence.

Whenever he "asks" for our opinions, he already has a fixed answer in his head. That isn't the problem, the problem is that he will argue and in worse cases use force just for you to agree with him.

My mom described him as a time bomb because we never know when he might finally lose it. He can come off as irrational at times and his mood changes so quickly sometimes I think he's bipolar. He jumps to conclusions without making any sense. Technically, he is capable of any level of harm if he doesn't control himself. He refuses to see a psychiatrist in fact the thought of it to him is nonsensical. No one would ever have thought the kind of person he is behind closed doors. When he is in a good mood, he would speak with a forked tongue.

I am not exaggerating. His attitude is.

Anyway, I am only stating our condition with all his negative points to make my point, because what he has contributed to the family is nothing compared to the damage he's done.

This is my first post as well as my first time opening up so much on the Net.. so.. thanks for reading.
