it's a neat idea.

something I thought about doing too, a long time ago.

but, for me, it got really hard writing about my childhood.

so stopped.

I don't think I ever intended to publish it, just do it as a personal project

I find it cathartic. I cry like hell every time I work on it, to the point that I have to stop to breathe and clear my eyes to see. When I'm finished with a part, I look at it and think "wow my life's been messed up severely. Glad I'm past that crappy point"

i think that's ashame

what's sad is so many people's lives have been ****ed up by parents, and I know I can't speak for everyone when I say this,

but I wish I could go back.

wish I could change the past..

No, you don't want to go back and try to change it. Learn from it instead, even if your only lesson is what not to do moving forward. I take care of my parents right now, but I'm spent with it. I really just want to leave and sleep in my car forever instead. I'm only one mean thing said from doing it, and they know it. I've told them they are literally killing me like this and my siblings know they need to help more but they rarely do.

maybe I worded that wrong.

I do want to go back, but, erase everything.

like, what would have happened if I maybe was braught up with diffrent parents, or I didn't witness endless abuse.

that's what I meant, not relive the hell I went through (I need to start being clearer)

but I know it can't happen

this life is not a rehersal.. this is it

Dear parental units (and step maternal unit )

When I said I wanted to die, I meant just that, I wanted to die.

I don't understand why I was never "worth it" to you and why you had to lie to me for more than 20 years. And then more lies.

Why did you have to abuse and neglect me?

It could just be another fiery hell. Just rise from the ashes, majestic phoenix, and burn the skies with your fire

Mom and Dad,
We've had a run of it. I moved back in to help care for you. You're leaving on a vacation next month, and I am leaving on my own vacation too. But, one of us isn't coming back.
