Very ‘Odd’ Behaviors

I used to get many strange looks for the things I did, like smash a bird on the beach with a rock when I was younger, blow fish up with fireworks, laugh when a rock was thrown at a bird and broke its wing, and I also used to abuse pets a lot as well. I used to beat the dog, I would choke my pet hamster until his eyes started bugging out, stuff...

I feel like I’m in a controlling relationship and I don’t know how to leave without him making a big deal out of it and making me out to be a horrible person.

Worried I Was a Sexual Abuser as a Child

I can remember at least 3 incidents as a child, the main one being when I was around 7-9 (we were the same age). My friend and I used to play many sexual games — these included humping and kissing each other and examining each other. I remember feeling very guilty and sad about this — sometimes when I wouldn’t want to play anymore she would force me — however I was a very bossy...

My Dad Verbally Abuses My Mom

My father has been repeating this cycle for over 20 years now. He first finds the smallest things and blames it on her by throwing a tantrum. He already has high blood pressure and diabetes and therefore uses it as a scapegoat. The worst thing is that even though my mother clearly wants out of the marriage, she still has a baby, my two sisters and I to take care of. However, my mother...

I’m now 23 and my life is beautiful. I have dealt with most of my issues. But one that won’t leave me alone...
