    I m 19 years old, and for as long as I can remember, I ve had all sorts of anxieties and depression from a young age. Long story short, the other week, after my mum got married to her new husband, she had a go at me for crying when I dropped my phone on my toe. I thought crying when you ve hurt yourself is a completely normal reaction, but then it continued with her telling me I need to get help and that she s fed up with it. I really don t get how it s gone from hurting my toe, to I need therapy... Whenever I try to talk to her about my personal problems, it always ends up in shouting and arguing. She will now cut me off straight away when I try to open up. She s the only person who has been with me my whole life, and now she doesn t want anything to do with me. This has really affected me badly. And even though I feel I m better, these situations drag me back down again. I don t know what to do anymore. I can t move out, I ve got no one to stay with, I can t even talk to my own parent anymore... I couldn t get any advice online so I ve come here. I m sorry if none of this makes sense, and that it s really long, I m just all over the place about this and need someone to give me advice or their opinions.

  • Should I be angry at her??

    Hey guys, so my girlfriend and I of almost 2 years, are expecting a baby, and while this is normally a happy moment in our lives, it really isn't.

    Hey guys, so my girlfriend and I of almost 2 years, are expecting a baby, and while this is normally a happy moment in our lives, it really isn't. For starters, she has a 3-year-old son from a previous relationship she was in, and when she found out she was pregnant she really told me that she doesn't want the baby. Even asking me about abortion, adoption, and other things. My initial reaction is immediate anger. Not only do I take care of her kid that isn't mine, but when I get a chance to finally have a child of my own, she doesn't want it? She says she's just trying to be honest instead of faking like she's happy about this pregnancy. Which I understand and appreciate her honesty, but I just can't get over the fact that she doesn't want my child. It makes me so angry because for almost 2 years I've been taking care of hers and being a good stepdad. I'm not saying she owes me anything but she knows that I'll be a good dad to the kids. She knows that, but she said she feels like she can't do what she wanted to do in life with 2 kids and I told her that I'd sacrifice time so that she can follow her dreams. But that still isn't enough. She just doesn't want a second baby and It makes me so mad. Why am I so angry at her??? Please help.

  • My father dated women with stripper names. How do I know if my Mom was a stripper?

    Best answer: Bunny used to be a very preppie name among affluent people. I know a Bunny- she's a very proper woman who's been married for decades to a banker.

  • How do I get my 13 year old to stop discussing (and trying to ask) adult stuff in general?

    My daughter wants to know about sexual things and even spoke to a friend about private parts. They’re things that a kid doesn’t need to know until he/she is 18 and in college! She’ll find SOME way to bring it up anyhow. For example, if we’re looking through the jewellery from her aunt’s marriage...she’ll ask... show more

She’ll find SOME way to bring it up anyhow. For example, if we’re looking through the jewellery from her aunt’s marriage...she’ll ask complicated marriage questions and birthing a baby. She was not like this before. Towards the end of 7th grade within the last four months, she’s been like this.

  • How do I politely convince my dad to stop wearing short shorts?

    Best answer: Buy him jeans. Most men hate shopping, and when he wakes up in the morning, there are his shorts! He will re-wear them until they smell funny, then wash them and they are on top in laundry basket so he grabs them and puts them on.

    So I told my mom I wanted to study in Virginia and she freaked out. My boyfriend of 2 years is leaving and I researched the school and it has a better option for what I’m interested in studying.

    So I told my mom I wanted to study in Virginia and she freaked out. My boyfriend of 2 years is leaving and I researched the school and it has a better option for what I’m interested in studying. The associate degree from here in Texas would only allow me to earn around 20k as an assistant but over there it would be double that. She keeps saying that I’m going to suffer and that’s she’s never going to forgive me. She also said if I leave she’s going to hate my boyfriend and they won’t give me a dime. I’m not expecting them to financially support me though and I know my stepdad is going to call me a sl*t. I would probably not be able to come around to see them on holidays because of the awful things they say. I just want to do what’s best for me and what will make me happy. Living here with them probably won’t because they rarely give me “permission” to do anything without them and I get it, it’s their house, their rules. I’d just like an honest opinion about what you would do in my situation.

    Mom don't love my father when they were married. Dad's family abused Mom and non of the family liked the marriage. Now my parents have $42,857(my country don't use dollar so in my home currency, that is alot[60,000,000]) debt to the bank. My parents are going to get divorced after we sell our main business. My mother have a online boy friend for 3 years and my dad can't do anything about it. My mother want to get me into a private school(public school in my country is crap) but can't because money is too tight.Right now I'm getting shouted a lot because they don't have anywhere to let stress out.
    Look, things are bad here but you got to be stronger. Grab earphones and listen music if you want block noises. In the mean time try to get a part time job or something to get In come. Things might more bad like getting beaten up or homeless. Hang in there🌺🌎🌏🌍 🕊

  • What is a liberal?

    I'm 16 and all I do is tell my dad to stop being sexist and racist when he says horrible things, and he scolds me constantly and always calls me a liberal, but I haven't really said anything to him except for that? I don't know what he means, he makes it out like it's a bad thing

    My wife and I are in our mid 20s. We met in college and discovered we had similar childhood experiences.

    My wife and I are in our mid 20s. We met in college and discovered we had similar childhood experiences. Both raised in pretty bad environments with parents and family who were poor, unprofessional, and irresponsible, put drugs or alcohol before their children, and blamed all their problems on everyone else. My wife and I worked our way through college, graduated, we both have good jobs, and we got married. I've tried to limit contact with my family. I don't plan on ever helping my parents, not even when they're old and need it. They didn't help me, so why should I really. Now my wife and I are about to have a daughter, and when my family found out I told them that they weren't going to be allowed to be in her life, because I don't respect them or their behavior. Then a few days ago I got a call from one of my relatives who said I look down my nose at all of them because I have money and they don't, and that I'm just an elitist snob who wants to forget where I came from. The thing is, I haven't forgotten, and that's exactly why I don't want to speak with them. They refuse to take responsibility for the fact that they're losers and improve their lives, so why should I be viewed as a snob for actually being productive, professional, and responsible?

    This is ridiculous l! So my mom just got back from dropping my sister off at college and was gone for a week. Anyway I got off school early today and when I got home she was back so I went to say hi and all that. I found that she was in the bathroom and we said hi which was my indicater that she was just doing her make up and all that. Well I was wrong and she was in the shower and the issue is that the shower is see through but she got mad at me for not knowing she was in the shower. A.) The shower was turned off B.) She never said anything about not coming in C.) The door was unlocked. How can she be mad at me when it’s all her fault. Sure it’s her private business and sure it’s gonna take ages for me to forget what I saw but it was completely accidental and unacceptable.

  • What is my mom's problem. she called me a sneaky witch because I cooked breakfast for my dad and my brothers?

    Best answer: She's upset because your doing something that she should or wants to do, even if doesn't look that way. My mom acts that way, sometimes she says thank you, other times she yells because its something she figures isn't important or she could do better. Its because its her life and her house.

    Best answer: She's upset because your doing something that she should or wants to do, even if doesn't look that way. My mom acts that way, sometimes she says thank you, other times she yells because its something she figures isn't important or she could do better. Its because its her life and her house. My mom makes me insecure all the time. I'm a little younger 23 but I went through a seriously weird year of college pressure and family pressure, this kinda opened my eyes how to deal with my moms temperament, because everybody was the same way around me for two years. When I was younger she use to yell, even if I did something better than her like cleaning, other times shed yell for the one time I forgot the dishes. I use to think be nice hold it in, be kind or try to do what I want even if it makes her angry if I could get it past her. Its not about right or wrong save yourself the emotional pressure and don't do things you know will get her mad. Mostly because its how to protect yourself.

    I have been divorced for almost three years, and have been dating someone for a few months that is turning into a serious relationship. My daughter, my girlfriend, and I are all traveling together to attend a family event. I am not sure how appropriate it is for the three of us to share a hotel room. The daughter is very worldly - she will be a sophomore at DePaul, which is right in the city of Chicago. She has gone on international trips with coed groups. When I have asked her about it she just shrugs and says "It's up to you, Dad." The hotels where we are traveling are somewhat expensive. An extra room for two nights will be at least $400. And obviously we would keep all behavior respectable and above board while sharing a room.

    I feel like crap now. She walked into my room with just bra and panties, and I got super hard. SMH! I swear I do not like her at all. I just couldn't control my erection. Ever since, I can not look at my sister the same way.

  • What causes some girls to be “tomboys”?

    I have seen some female children behave in masculine ways and socialize with mostly boys. Is it their environment, such as having brothers, that causes this? The parenting?? Or just how they are?
