Parents Always Put Their Children First... Not My Dad.To start off I am just going to give a short background story:
My mother died when I was 6, and my dad was not in my life really until that point. When I was in 3rd grade he had a physically abusive girlfriend and when I was in 7th he had another girlfriend who was not only mentally abusive but used my dad for his money and stability. When they started getting serious he said (mind you, in front of me), "I will ALWAYS put you first" he said to his girlfriend. Now for the story:
I am 15 years old and in 10th grade. Last year, I was more depressed than ever in my life. I lived with my best friend over the summer and some of the school year. My dad met this new girlfriend, *Alex and at first I hated her, of course, I don't trust women. And so after a while I begin to like her and stuff when my dad lays a bombshell on me. He were being evicted from our apartment (where we stayed on weekends). He said he was moving to Alex's house and said I could come with or stay if it were okay with my friend. I, wanting my father to be happy, went along and realized it was hell. They fought all the time, I had to share a bedroom with her son which was not apart of the agreement and they made me do EVERYTHING besides cook. Otherwise she had nothing to do, my dad had nothing to do (besides work (for both)) and her son didn't have any chores. I had no friends at this new school and to make matters worse i started in at the middle of the year. I had no friends, bad home life and I cut. One day I put a sign on the door saying "no one come in" and my dad comes in and says "This is his room too you can't just Lock yourself in here! If he wants in you have to let him in!" And doesn't even realize the tear stains, or my mood, or how numb I was... I had no one... I thought he was supposed to be there for me... He then later (like 4months) kicked me out. I now live with a drunk *** grandpa who gets pissed a lot and fights me all the time. He also expects me to do things for him! I'm not a ******* maid! Do your own ******* laundry for gosh sakes. My Dad and I now have a strenuous relationship and I don't like his girlfriend for kicking me out either. Yeah, I made a few mistakes but everyone makes mistakes. Life doesn't come with an instruction manual.
