Are We Mutually Abusive?

He was drunk and pulled me outside by my hair and locked me out. Since that...

Why Do I Fantasize about Killing People?

I sometimes think about killing people. Sometimes I have urges. Some of these fantasies are pretty detailed. This has been only been happening of late, when I’m frustrated or depressed. Before, I would want to hurt myself, now it’s mostly directed towards other people. It’s no one in particular, just random people. I just feel the need to cause violence, to destroy. Is this normal? Also, I don’t really have anyone I’m comfortable with...

My Dad Died, But All I Feel Is Relief

My Dad passed away a little over a year ago after a 13-year battle with cancer. Everyone in my family mourns him, but I never grieved and all I feel is relief.

She never worked, and I cared for her the entire time even after we split. I guess I started to resent her bc of it. I became severely depressed in the months leading to the fight...

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized that it had been an unhealthy dependent relationship where she had relied on me to heal her wounds and to be her source of comfort. Part of it was feeling hurt...
