Some of my happiest memories are from holidays in Lanzarote. My parents and I went to the same apartment block thing with their best friends and their two sons. One was two years younger than me and one was two years older... we made a perfect blend I always thought. We had the exact same issue with the swimming pool - absolutely ridiculous. The first time we went was the year after Pokemon Gold and Silver were released. After dinner we would come back and sit on the balcony in the moonlight and play through our adventures. Amazing.
We went every October for 4 years running. The last time was seven years ago and the month of October has just never been the same since.
Ich bin aus Neuseeland, und ich lerne Deutsch seit nur ein Jahr, so ich weiss nicht so viele Woerte :)
Das war ein Tippfehler. 'Labbrig', auf Englisch, ist 'soggy', oder 'damp'. Mögen Sie diese Wort nicht? Schulden Sie Peter Fox.
I clicked on this because German.
Your old life tasted like a what toast now? Was bedeutet 'labrig'?
Or rather, most people are. >___>
It's true what they say. Life really is a bitch.
I guess you really couldn't. Jeeze. I honestly do worry for my own fate when I see how quickly some people become twofaced/change into someone horrible.
I'd say 'I hope I don't make the same mistake', but...well, how can you tell at the time?
It's comparitively very easy for him right now, then. Gosh.
Wow, that's a heck of a reason. :I I got the same thing asking my mum about my dad, except "He wasn't such an ass once". xD
I don't know. He must have the patience of a saint. I suppose it's helped that he's been working away all week every week for as long as I've been getting buses to school (but coming home at the weekend). Then again, that left me home alone with my mother, leaving me to bear the brunt of her selfishness...
Sometimes I do ask him why he married her. The response:
"Because she was cute once."
Jeeze. I honestly can't imagine how angry that would make me, to be honest. It's just backwards. I can understand you being stuck in this situation, but how come your dad endures it?
Thanks. It's nice to know there's someone there to lend an ear. Living with my mother is maddening. It's a wonder I have an ego at all, the way she acts. My father and I have more or less agreed that, through her eyes, the hierarchy at home is something resembling this. From most, down to least, important:
~Her Almighty Lady and Grace The All-Powerful Lady Of The Manor~
-Topical stuff She cares about
-Maternal extended family
-Paternal extended family
-Whatever happens to be in the toilet bowl right now
That's certainly how it feels, anyway.
I'd like to think so. ^^"
Oh, I can understand that in some ways. My dad would manipulate/guilt/scare you into doing whatever he thought you should but undermined all opinions and feelings if they weren't in line with his. I've got three siblings with different parents, too, though not for the same reasons.
Dude, trust me, if you wanna rant at someone about anything, I am here. I may not be good for much, but empathy I can do.
You might be right on the first point. In fact, you probably are.
As far as my mother goes...well, she goes beyond the classic 'I'm the parent; you do as I say' thing. She treats anyone who isn't a cat like that. Even her own husband. She demands respect without giving respect herself. She bitches about other people but can't take the smallest criticism about herself. She's been trying to trip my father up into doing something the courts would consider 'unreasonable behaviour' so she can divorce him like she did with three men before him. Incidentally, my three siblings all have different fathers. But this is all way off the point. I'm just ranting about my personal life now.
I wouldn't go that far. Different people have different susceptibilities and the body is more resilient than most think so long as you're getting exercise and eating enough.
I think most parents think they are some kind of god when it comes to their kids, unfortunately. :I
I know. I'm used to the system. I'm just sick of pointless blogs that are posted mere seconds after (e.g.) my longer posts get to be shown there, on what becomes a social pedestal, simply for being posted a little later than mine (i.e. the longer post gets no time on said pedestal at all). Surely they should be moderated, or something? I mean, come on. Some of us take blogging seriously, while others just post nonsense in capital letters and call it a blog. I don't want to name names, because, as outlined above, that would make me feel like a douchebag.
The featured blog is just the most recent blog, and doesn't promote anything. It's just as visible as any other blog on the main page.
Oh. Well, there goes my prospect of a long, fulfilling life
I've just come out the other end of five gruelling years of commuting twenty miles to school on two buses that rarely run to schedule, and when they do, they don't do so in sync, and now that I'm free of that stress (that, may I point out, has been dogging me since age eleven), I'm met with this. Never mind the emotional embargo I'm forced under at home by my mother who really thinks she's some kind of god...
It's been fun, but I suppose I should prepare to die sometime in my thirties, maybe forties?
...Essentially, yes, since stress impacts the overall health and the immune system. In fact, after my dad left, my pulse alone dropped from the constant high of around 130 to a much healthier 89, and that was just the stress of having such an irritating and inconsiderate person around. :I
