    I'm a 16 year old girl so I'm still living at home. My family and I have always been huge meat eaters and honestly I love meat and find it a struggle to imagine my diet without it. However as I'm getting older I'm starting to come to my own conclusions about things more than just following my parents "just don't think about what you're eating" attitude. Whilst on the computer the other day I found a presentation about how immoral eating meat is, followed by the most repulsive snapshot from an abbatoir. This video paired with my own feelings helped consolidate how I feel about eating meat. I really don't want to eat it any more for moral reason and also for the health benefits. My parents are against me going vegetarian as they think it's just a phase and it's too much hassle to make me separate meals and they believe this diet won't provide me with the necessary nutrients. Can anyone help me out?

  • Despite my success as an entrepreneur, why does my father still love to remind me of the fact that I never finished high school?

    My business has been thriving for the past 11 years, and I'm pulling in a very nice income.

    My business has been thriving for the past 11 years, and I'm pulling in a very nice income. But all that time he's been saying things like: "One day your business will fail and then you'll be flipping burgers" and I've been hearing it for nearly a decade. I don't think my business will EVER fail, but even if it does I have a nest egg that will get me by for 4-5 years even if I don't work at all. I think he resents me because I've been more successful than he has ever been even though he has a degree.

    So I drive a car that my stepdad bought a year ago for himself. He doesn’t really use it because he works and he has his own truck for his job . So my point is the only reason I’m allowed to use it is because I drive to where I work and my mom convinced him to let me use it . I only use it for a couple minutes a day and when he uses it he takes it for more than a hour . So he’s basically using up all the gas . I’m just saying, yeah sure he pays for the car insurance. The car is pretty old cause it’s from 1998 . So he paid it off. I get mad cause when I use it and use up all or half the gas I refill it and he doesn’t seem to care about wasting the gas he leaves it to almost empty. But I mean he is using his car so why have to be mad about refueling your own car . I use it to get to where I need to be and I still will refuel it to use it again. I’m just mad cause he thinks that because I work or earn money, I may have all the money in the world. I don’t know wheather I should confront him or just let it be .

    Best answer: I'm not sure what you're wanting from anybody here. You survive it by finding other things to do in your free time. Also, it will impress your parents a lot if you don't complain about your punishment. The other thing you want to do is stop apologizing. Yes, you needed to do that, but it starts sounding fake if someone says it constantly.

    They're doing the right thing here, because they want to be sure you learn that bad choices have consequences. Adults who never learn this have sucky lives.

    I'm sixteen Two months ago My dad and stepmom grounded for two months because I was late for curfew they didn't even give me a chance to explain what happened. If they had answered the phone when I called I would have told them that my kick me out of the car and left me on the side of the road. I think they was wrong because that was the first time I was ever late for curfew My ex-boyfriend kick me out of the car because wouldn't have sex with him. I had to call my step brother and I asked him to come and get me. a week later after they grounded me my stepmom told me that my step-brother told her what happened. she asked me why I didn't tell them about it I said because y'all didn't give me a chance y'all just jumped conclusions. She did not unground me because cursed at her the night they grounded me. My stepmom is always on my case about everything especially School it aggravates the crap out of me. My stepmom gets upset because I energy drinks all the time like it's any of her business. She is always telling that energy drinks are bad for me . My stepmom thinks she has a right to know if I'm having sex with my boyfriend which I'm not because I'm not ready for the that and it's none of her business. I don't appreciate my stepmother going through my room and throwing my energy drinks and stacker3 away. Sometimes I just want to tell her to mind her own business and to leave me alone and it stay out of my life but I don't want to be rude or hurt her feelings.

    My Father married a woman who in the past had a lot of family who was into witch craft (grandfather was a spiritualist made potions etc for other people; he passed away. I believe her uncles, who are in another country still practice..). My father and his family believe in god and practice Christianity. Presently and for for many years our family has been suffering from what appears to be a chain of bad luck. But recently we have become suspicious that what has been happening is not by accident. (Illnesses; cancer, auto imune diseases, ulcers, loss of jobs, many individuals depressed, discontentment, bad things continue to happen, just seems like too much to just be bad luck. etc..) How can we tell if theres more going on? Or if there is a bad spirit against myself, my family etc? What can we do?

    Best answer: ... Locked up in the bathroom?, confiscated your phone? and told you not to contact with anyone for your safety? first let me say to you, stop being stupid and idiot, why? just as you said "NEW" boyfriend how come he handles you like some kind of a pet that he needs to protect from unwanted predator and not even letting you communicate with your family, do you know the reason why? telling you its for your safety is not a reason but a way to evade your question.

    Even if he has a real reason it is not enough for him to stop you from communicating with your family, you have to clarify things with him "if" you want to continue your relationship or end it but hopefully you choose the latter.

    lastly you should check what happened in the last few days when you are with him, you might not know maybe he got himself in trouble and you don't want to be in it.

    I m 13 years old and my parents have a joint custody but i stay with my dad more. My mom and I went to go to court to fight again for custody but we lost last week. We provided so much evidence about the depression and anxiety I had staying at my dad s and how bad the school is for me and the neighborhood he lives in. I even wrote a letter and did a video to say how I felt. He always talks so bad and says lies about my mom to convince me to hate her. Is there any other way to get me to live with my mom?

    I know that obviously I don't *have* to let her visit, but really what I'm asking is more of a case of if it's moral to just decline her requests. Bit of backstory: I'm 25 and recently married. Husband and I are super happy. He actually cares about me. As for my parents, I was the scapegoat for many years, which gave me lots of mental distress and lowered self esteem. To this day I'm not sure if my parents love me, and I have CPTSD. My mother projected her negative qualities onto me. When I'm around my entire family I often feel like I'm not worth much (although we do have happy moments). I know that I can't blame everything on my parents as I am an adult now, so I'm doing my own therapy to learn healthy behaviors, but since I've moved away to be with my husband I've just been so much better in terms of self esteem. Now my husband and I are living in a new country, a country that my mother has wanted to visit for a long time. She says she wants to visit me to "see how I'm doing" (aka acting like she's concerned for me), but to me I feel like she just wants a free place to stay to see the country and have someone show her around. I don't know what to do. I don't want her to come, because I feel like this is a safe haven away from my toxic family, but I feel a lot of guilt now. I feel like if I push my family away then I won't have a family anymore. I'm fine going to visit them on christmas and stuff, but I just don't want them to bring their energy here. Is that bad?

I’m trying to pay all of my bills, my car note and I take my mom places in my car with no gas money and give my little sister money here and there and top of this have a whole baby mother I just gave like 200 bucks a month for our daughter. Since she says I don’t do sht so I gave her money and I don’t make much only $14 bucks an hour but I feel like I have to do all of this on my own. I feel like I can’t ask anyone for anything. Like I tried asking my older brother for 5 dollars and he says he doesn’t have it. But when he didn’t have a job, there were times when I bought him things without him even asking. I do what I can but whenever I don’t have some money then People will get angry and expect me to have it. I know I’m a 23 year old adult but I’m starting to get irritated and overwhelmed.

I was born when they were moving out so I don't really know them. They have kids and good jobs and I have nothing in common with them other than having the same mom. I'm pretty awkward around people I don't know. And I'm sure they think there is something wrong with me. I hate going because I'm so awkward around them. Would be okay if I just didn't go next year?

    My one sister no longer allows her kids to speak to him. I feel this is cruel. Is it? He is not violent but very moody. How do I handle this? My kids are 4, 7, and 12. The 7 year old has been upset before on two occasions by him saying "get the brat to shut up". The 12 year old is very quiet and 4 year old is too young to notice. We only see him every other month so 5 or 6 times a year. I do not go weekly at all like we do with their other grandparents. Both my parents were alcoholic and my mother already died from it 15 years ago (possible suicide as well).
