    I am 17 years old. Today I got into my second car crash. I am working at five guys and only have 700 dollars saved up. My parents payed for a crash I caused a year ago. It cost them 1,500 dollars. I know this crash will cost even more. I want to kill myself because I feel terrible for the amount of money my parents are spending because of me. I am an embarrassment to my family. I feel like I am not a part of reality anymore. I want to die. I am a senior and was planning to go to UF, to become a doctor. My tuition is payed for by Bright futures. This, and causing my parents pain because we can’t afford this crash is the two reasons I have to not die. I am doing it tonight. I don’t know what letter to leave. I don’t know. I need help I need to talk to someone I am scared but I am done causing my parents pain.

  • My parents don’t support my political views, what do I do?

    My parents are extremely liberal and believe I’m brainwashing my 3 daughters with “evil” things just because I myself am a republican. My relationship with my parents is strained and at this point my daughters have no relationship with their grandparents. Is there any way I can fix my relationship with my parents?

  • Family doesn’t want me to date him because of his job?

    I’m 24 years old (female), and I come from a middle eastern family. Started recently talking to a guy, and we’ve only been on one date so far, but the chemistry was great. Way too early to tell how it’s going to pan out obviously. Anyways, I was considering going out on a second date with him....but my family... show more
    I’m 24 years old (female), and I come from a middle eastern family. Started recently talking to a guy, and we’ve only been on one date so far, but the chemistry was great. Way too early to tell how it’s going to pan out obviously. Anyways, I was considering going out on a second date with him....but my family found out what he does for a living, and now they are all against me going on any further dates with him because they found out he’s a construction manager. P.s don’t ask me how I know this, but apparently he’s making almost 200k doing what he does. He’s redicolously career oriented. Anywaysss, none of this matters to my family....nor his drive/ambitions or his salary doing what he does. They’re telling me that they would be extremely ashamed to tell our family what he does as a career. And also telling me that I would potentially be setting up a terrible example for my future children, potentially marrying someone who doesn’t even have a bachelors degree. Anyways, all in all, I’m getting MAJOR sh*tfor even considering going out on another date with him. Keep in mind that I come from a family of doctors/engineers/lawyers. The money or drive doesn’t matter to them- they think the title of his career is extremely shameful to potentially bring up to all of our family & relatives in the future. My family has usually given me so much freedom, but for once, I feel like I’m literally trapped & living in a cage. How would you guys have handled the situation?

    I'm 17 and I've been working at my job since August, but I'm going to get fired at this rate. My parents keep making me take days off for stupid stuff. For example, my mom forced me to take today off. To go shopping. For a turkey. I tried to tell my dad this was ludicrous and he backed her up. Not only do I not get paid for days I take off, I'm up to 8 days on the month, and my boss said if I take any more I run the risk of being dismissed. I'm honestly scared that if I get fired I won't be able to get another job because if they contact my current boss he'll say I was fired for missing too much work. Every time I try to explain that I can't just take days off for unimportant stuff (like turkey shopping) they get pissed and threaten to ground me. Please lend some advice, I have no idea what to do about this because I can't get through to my parents.

    My daughter is 15 years old and got arrested for assault. She done this because the girl stole her boyfriend. Right now I have grounded her and taken away her cell phone and computer. I don't know if this enough. She has never had a mother, she died at child birth. She has always been a troublesome kid, but she has never done anything to get arrested. Is my punishment enough? I have tried talking, I have taken her to a therapist, I even had my mother talk to her, today all I got out of her was "That ***** stole my boyfriend dad, I was saving everyone else from that ******* slut and man whore"

I live with my husband and we have a spare bedroom but we don't have the money to take care of them. My mom can't even work. Is it wrong if I don't want them here? How am I supposed to tell her? I told her to sign up for section 8 and stuff but if she lives her she'll get too comfortable and not do anything. Also it's going to affect my marriage my husband already said if they're having to live here he's going to have to live with his grandmother because it's going to be too much and too crowded. Why did this happen? What do I do?

    Basically since I was little, my grandpa would always take me and my grandma to places and he would drive me to school everyday and I would see him almost everyday in 6th grade and see him on the weekends on middle school. And then this year, I just started freshman year and on October 25, my grandpa suffered a sudden heart attack and my grandma drove him straight to emergency but I don’t know why he had a heart attack since he was completely healthy and had no issues in the past. He fell in a coma when he was rushed to the hospital and was put on life support and after a week, his children decided to take him off life support and only have an oxygen tube to breathe through. He survived a week without food and water and died this Tuesday. When he was still in a coma, his eyes were opened and he was able to swallow and wiggle his toes. I can’t believe he’s gone. He would take care of my grandma and they would excwrcise everyday. Every time I go to my grandmas, it feels incomplete.

    My mom lives with my family: my husband, baby and I. She has some difficulties so she moved to live with us. We gave her a nice room and take care of all the expenses. I want to understand if I am wrong: my mom constantly tries to change everything, she hates the wall color so she decided to paint some butterflies, she wants to move furniture, she takes off wall decorations. I asked her not to touch anything because it was my husbands office and I do not think he will love butterflies on the walls that's why I denied her request. Also this morning we got in the argument, every morning we drink tea with candy. My mom hid all the candy for herself (lol) and when I told her that it is selfish and she acts like it is war time she started yelling at me, calling me ungrateful and that she feels like a servant in our house. I never asked her to cook or clean she does it on her own. She embarrasses me and constantly calls me pig or rat in front of the whole family.

  • Why do people always assume we all have been born naturally?

    For example when saying "respect your mom because she got through a lot of pain when giving birth to you", does this mean that those who's mom had a ceasarian birth should not respect their mothers?

    I am 20 years old by the way and live with my parents, I work and attend college. I am the only child, and my dad tends to work a lot. This year my mother’s mom, dad and brother all passed away so it has been hard on all of us especially my mom. I have been considering doing this special school abroad experience that I am very very interested in that would start in February, something I have been considering for a long time. Would it be wrong to leave my mom to do this? She does not really have any family here where we live in the US considering her family is from the Philippines. Just a cousin, and a lot of filipino friends here. She seemed upset when I first mentioned it to her saying something along the lines, “my parents left, my brother and now you would be leaving me.” I don’t know what to do, I mean ofcourse the loss of the family is hard on me too but I know its apart of life and we have to move on. What should I do?

    Best answer: She NEEDS to be on her own. Your mother is an adult woman and she's responsible to take care of HerOwnShit. You' are responsible for ONLY ONE PERSON and that is You.

    Best answer: She NEEDS to be on her own. Your mother is an adult woman and she's responsible to take care of HerOwnShit. You' are responsible for ONLY ONE PERSON and that is You.

    Not sure why you have some strange idea you're responsible for your mother. If she's sick,or has some physical problems, she needs to make her way out into the world and get some professional help. It's what grown up people do.

    Go your own way. Nothing wrong with communicating with Mom, but there is a lot wrong with taking care of her instead of taking care of yourself.
