    Not having a car makes so depressed. I hate my family and I'm so tired of being around them "all the time". Not having a car just forces me to not be independent or have any freedom. I just feel so jealous because everyone seems to have a car besides me I still have to go places with my mom. It also makes me put things on hold like having a social life and going to school. Where I live everything is so far away even walking to the bus stop takes like an hour to get there. I just feel so angry like I just wanna die since I hate my stressful situation so much. I just got my licence but I'm not spoiled and dident have a family who rushed and brought me a car it's something I have to wait and get myself but who knows when that will be. I just feel so angry not having a car just makes me hate life so much..I kind of have anixity and having a car would help but I have to be watched all the time and have not space or privacy taking the bus all the time I hate it so much..I just feel like committing suicide..is this a good reason? I have no one to help me or take me anywhere..I have to struggle I hate my life so much

Also if I tell them that all my friends have it, they will counter it By saying that's is our family and this is how we do things. All they want me to do is study (which I already do) till my brain explodes :(

    I have been helping her out lately. She is not biologically my cousin as she was adopted at age 5. Her adopted mother (my aunt) meant well but was not prepared for the psychological effects of a child abused her first 5 years including sexual abuse. The aunt constantly puts her daughter down and praises the other three adopted kids she has (all them were adopted as infants so had no trauma and adjusted fine). So now my cousin is an adult. She is mostly estranged from her adopted mother though sees her once a year at Christmas Week. She has nothing to do with her birthfamily. I have been doing a lot with this cousin since last Christmas. Should I marry her? I am a 31 year old guy and she is a 28 year old woman. We'd be perfect but we're related. We live in Arkansas and so cousin marriage is legal here.

    I'm thirteen, my mum has smoked since before I was born. She doesn't bother to go outside or to even open a window when she's smoking and I'm in the same room. I have asthma, its never been very bad but I think the smoke is starting to mess with it, its harder to breath and when she smoking near me it hurts. She's tried to stop before but failed. Ever since I was little I told her it was bad for me and to at least not smoke when I'm in the room, I'm glad she can't smoke in the car with me anymore though, that was the worse. Doesn't she even care about me? I guess I could just stay in my room all day instead of coming downstairs though, that would solve the problem I guess.

Let her choose what she wants to like and where and tell her she looks nice. I myself Love the color black and white, I have blonde hair, ok blonde gray hair and black and white colors do look good on me, or at least I think. She's coming into herself and feeling the waters, not always great, and sometimes we have to put them back down a notch or two if it gets to far out of hand, like reminding them who is the mom and who is the daughter/son. . Don't take it to heart we mostly all go through this. Goodluck

My parents are very religious, they won t even let me drink they think even a glass of wine will make me a bad person. Are my parents too strict?

She also says I clean too much and make guests uncomfortable when they are at our house because my face looks angry. My mom says once I turn 18 she is kicking me out and I should make other arrangements. I really don't want this kind of relationship with my mom because I love her and I don't want her to hate me because of certain things I do. Please help I don't want my mom to despise me for the rest of my life..

Most of them never replied but it still bothered me, I eventually forgot about it. I deleted some of the chats so that it wouldn t get further. I don t think he even realised that they stop replying because it so freaking weird and it makes him look dumb. Today the same situation happened and I saw he has been doing the same crap. And this really made me angry and I don t know what to do. My dad and I don t have the best relationship, we aren t the ones who would speak about sensitive topics or get into emotional issues. This whole thing gets to me so much because I m the only one who knows about it and my mother does so freaking much for him and it s like he has no shame. I really need help with this, I don t know how to confront him about it.

  • My father started crying when I said that i have a boyfriend?

    Best answer: I'm not sure if it was happiness (for you) or sadness (that the process of one day losing his little girl has begun). Some father's get sentimental. I hope this guy is a strong guy.

    Best answer: I'm not sure if it was happiness (for you) or sadness (that the process of one day losing his little girl has begun). Some father's get sentimental.

    I hope this guy is a strong guy. A strong person has good character (honesty, integrity, trustworthiness), displays a positive attitude (cheerful, caring, friendly, forgiving, helpful, and respectful), fulfills their responsibilities (for handling pains in a positive way, for always trying to make a good choice, for taking care of themselves, for serving others), gives their best effort, and demonstrates self-control (of their body, anger, tongue and money). A strong person isn't overly concerned with what weak mean people say, do, or think.

    My suggestion is that you put in the effort necessary to become a strong person (if you’re not already), break up with this guy in a kind way unless he’s a strong person, and eventually look for this type of guy (otherwise you are setting yourself up for a broken heart). Unfortunately this type of man is difficult to find – but save yourself the heartache and don’t settle for less.

    (Please remember that you eventually want a 50 or 60 year marriage - not a 5 or 10 year marriage.)

    Hope this helps!

    PS The best way to get to know a strong man without dating is to participate in the activities of a community service or a school organization.

    If the child has parents who are cruel to them, are bullied by other kids, and a low self-esteem... does it make them for vulnerable to prey on? I read somewhere that some sex offenders try to find individuals who are unstable. I notice a huge number of children and teens going missing or being assaulted are from dysfunctional environments. These kids don't always lack supervision, they might just be depressed for other reasons.
