I think about it alot

I wonder what it's like to grow up in a home—a real home. A neighborhood. Not in one apartment after another. With parents that care what happens to you. Parents who save for your college and make sure you go to the dentist and doctor and show up for your school stuff. Who make sure you move on comfortably in life. So that when you move on in life that's what you expect and that's what you get. Not ones who give up so you end up worse off. I wonder what life is like when you have parents like that. I wish I did.

  • I know this feeling all too well. But the life that you were given means that you have to learn to fight for yourself. If no one will be there to catch you, you must be your own safety net when times get tough. It's unfair that some people have to learn to live this way and others don't, but on the bright side, it means you will grow independent and be much more able to care for yourself than some others. I know you can do it. I'm in the same boat.

  • There is nothing you can do about that, can you? Just internalize the thought: your parents are bad parents. But if you work hard, and with a little bit of luck, you get to have anything you need. Just fight for yourself in any way you can.

  • I wish I had parents like you wished for when I grew up. Instead I got one parent who blew his brains out and another who OD'd on crack. We can't choose who are parents are. Just remind yourself that you have a roof over your head. Someone to pay the bills. You are not beaten or sexually abused (I hope you're not). When you grow up you will be that parent that you never had to your own children. Just take it one day at a time.

  • I sincerely wish you did, too, we all deserve that.

    Sadly, we do not all get that, though, so stay strong, learn to look after yourself, and focus on the positive as much as you can.

    I wish you the best of luck.

    James.
