Fully Dysfunctional Family.

Today my mom and I got in an argument. I told her growing up was the last thing I wanted to do. In fact I wanted to go back to being a little kid.

Afterwards, I thought about it.

The only reason I want to be a little kid is so I can be ignorant and not know everything that's wrong with my family.

My father left my mom because I was conceived.
He was, and still is, an alcoholic.
Because he was never there, my step-dad became my father figure.
They divorced when I was in third grade because my mom slept with his best friend.
And then she ruined his marriage too.
My mom has very few friends because she only cares about herself.
Her sister talks crap about her behind her back.
Most of the adults in my family smoke weed.
My dad talks to me every day about hating my mother, and my mother doesn't want my dad in the house ever.
If that's not bad enough, I know all this and I'm only thirteen.

I don't know how long I can take my fully dysfunctional family.

  • Bless your heart...focus on goals that will help you be self sufficient and successful. Don't ever self medicate or jump into relationships due to your situation or loneliness. You can and will have a bright future is you start working towards it now. Get good grades, volunteer, and keep your eyes on the future. You can make it!!

  • If it makes you feel any better, most families are dysfunctional. Since you are only 13 you might not know this yet, but it's true... you'll see!

  • You've got them pegged pretty well. Dysfunctional. Be your own guide and use those losers as an example of what you don't want to be. Growing up and getting out is your dream.
