    I'm a 16 year old girl so I'm still living at home. My family and I have always been huge meat eaters and honestly I love meat and find it a struggle to imagine my diet without it. However as I'm getting older I'm starting to come to my own conclusions about things more than just following my parents "just don't think about what you're eating" attitude. Whilst on the computer the other day I found a presentation about how immoral eating meat is, followed by the most repulsive snapshot from an abbatoir. This video paired with my own feelings helped consolidate how I feel about eating meat. I really don't want to eat it any more for moral reason and also for the health benefits. My parents are against me going vegetarian as they think it's just a phase and it's too much hassle to make me separate meals and they believe this diet won't provide me with the necessary nutrients. Can anyone help me out?

    So I drive a car that my stepdad bought a year ago for himself. He doesn’t really use it because he works and he has his own truck for his job . So my point is the only reason I’m allowed to use it is because I drive to where I work and my mom convinced him to let me use it . I only use it for a couple minutes a day and when he uses it he takes it for more than a hour . So he’s basically using up all the gas . I’m just saying, yeah sure he pays for the car insurance. The car is pretty old cause it’s from 1998 . So he paid it off. I get mad cause when I use it and use up all or half the gas I refill it and he doesn’t seem to care about wasting the gas he leaves it to almost empty. But I mean he is using his car so why have to be mad about refueling your own car . I use it to get to where I need to be and I still will refuel it to use it again. I’m just mad cause he thinks that because I work or earn money, I may have all the money in the world. I don’t know wheather I should confront him or just let it be .

    So my new boyfriend stopped letting me talk to any of my family or friends. He took my iPhone away from me and even changed the password on his phone to keep me from using it. When I asked him for my phone back he told me that he sold it. He says that he's just doing it to protect me. He's much older than I am and more experienced in relationships so I want to trust him, but I really miss my mom and my sisters. I was going to sneak out to visit them two days ago but he locked me in the bathroom and braced a chair up against the door so I couldn't leave. I haven't even been to school in like two weeks. I borrowed the neighbor's phone and called my mom to pick me up but I'm really worried about what he's going to do when I eventually go back home to him. Is this normal behavior in a new relationship?

    Best answer: I'm not sure what you're wanting from anybody here. You survive it by finding other things to do in your free time. Also, it will impress your parents a lot if you don't complain about your punishment. The other thing you want to do is stop apologizing. Yes, you needed to do that, but it starts sounding fake if someone says it constantly.

    They're doing the right thing here, because they want to be sure you learn that bad choices have consequences. Adults who never learn this have sucky lives.

    My Father married a woman who in the past had a lot of family who was into witch craft (grandfather was a spiritualist made potions etc for other people; he passed away. I believe her uncles, who are in another country still practice..). My father and his family believe in god and practice Christianity. Presently and for for many years our family has been suffering from what appears to be a chain of bad luck. But recently we have become suspicious that what has been happening is not by accident. (Illnesses; cancer, auto imune diseases, ulcers, loss of jobs, many individuals depressed, discontentment, bad things continue to happen, just seems like too much to just be bad luck. etc..) How can we tell if theres more going on? Or if there is a bad spirit against myself, my family etc? What can we do?

    I know that obviously I don't *have* to let her visit, but really what I'm asking is more of a case of if it's moral to just decline her requests. Bit of backstory: I'm 25 and recently married. Husband and I are super happy. He actually cares about me. As for my parents, I was the scapegoat for many years, which gave me lots of mental distress and lowered self esteem. To this day I'm not sure if my parents love me, and I have CPTSD. My mother projected her negative qualities onto me. When I'm around my entire family I often feel like I'm not worth much (although we do have happy moments). I know that I can't blame everything on my parents as I am an adult now, so I'm doing my own therapy to learn healthy behaviors, but since I've moved away to be with my husband I've just been so much better in terms of self esteem. Now my husband and I are living in a new country, a country that my mother has wanted to visit for a long time. She says she wants to visit me to "see how I'm doing" (aka acting like she's concerned for me), but to me I feel like she just wants a free place to stay to see the country and have someone show her around. I don't know what to do. I don't want her to come, because I feel like this is a safe haven away from my toxic family, but I feel a lot of guilt now. I feel like if I push my family away then I won't have a family anymore. I'm fine going to visit them on christmas and stuff, but I just don't want them to bring their energy here. Is that bad?

I’m trying to pay all of my bills, my car note and I take my mom places in my car with no gas money and give my little sister money here and there and top of this have a whole baby mother I just gave like 200 bucks a month for our daughter. Since she says I don’t do sht so I gave her money and I don’t make much only $14 bucks an hour but I feel like I have to do all of this on my own. I feel like I can’t ask anyone for anything. Like I tried asking my older brother for 5 dollars and he says he doesn’t have it. But when he didn’t have a job, there were times when I bought him things without him even asking. I do what I can but whenever I don’t have some money then People will get angry and expect me to have it. I know I’m a 23 year old adult but I’m starting to get irritated and overwhelmed.

I was born when they were moving out so I don't really know them. They have kids and good jobs and I have nothing in common with them other than having the same mom. I'm pretty awkward around people I don't know. And I'm sure they think there is something wrong with me. I hate going because I'm so awkward around them. Would be okay if I just didn't go next year?

She ran away cause she has long experimented with drugs and been with a bad crowd cause she was bullied in grade school. She ran off when my mother confronted her about a man she was sleeping with. She hasn't gone to school since middle of Junior Year. However, we don't want her to get hurt. We put posters up and everything and she locked us and her friends out of her social media. From what police have found there was some activity in Pasadena in May and no activity on social media since and no debit card use. If she OD's do they always find the body? We don't think she was kidnapped or anything but don't know. We are all the way in Tacoma. Please help, where is she?

    My Mom;s sister is in town and my parents are on bad terms with her. She can be hostile to her siblings and down right mean. I take pride though in keeping up with all the family. I just saw her in July so it is not the end of the world if I don't and her two children are not with her. However, I do feel guilty boycotting someone in the family. So how do I avoid feeling guilt if I boycott this relative? If I see her how do I avoid getting grief from my parents if they find out? I try to keep it a secret from them but they always seem to learn via our grandmother or social media. I don't post anything but the aunt sometimes does. I could ask her not to but that will expose that my parents insist I avoid her for life. I am 27 so not at risk of being punished or anything, but hate conflict and this aunt is not the most precious or anything as she can be hostile to her siblings for some reason.

  • Why did my sister marry a white man?

    I'm so angry at her. In our community, we don't date outside our race. My parents worked so hard to send her to America for an education. Then she ran off with a white man and got married.
