Post Re: dear mom and dad

Dear Mom and Dad, I wish you were more honest about your own mental heath with me and yourselves.
Dear Mom and Dad, I'm sorry but I often I wish you hadn't brought me into this world.
Dear Mom and Dad, I wish you noticed that I was terribly depressed and anxious as a child. (and I wish you did something about it)
Dear Mom and Dad, I wish you hadn't dismissed me when after nearly a decade, I finally summed the courage to tell you how much pain I was in.
Dear Mom and Dad, I hope you don't blame yourself for my mental health.
Dear Mom and Dad, I love you.

as for the restraining order, what do I do.. ring the police and say, hi, I would like a restraining order on such and such because of this?

I really don't know how it works, so if anyone of you do, please let me know
Go to the court house where you live, and tell them you need to file an emergency restraining order. They will help you

If they are sending you abusive texts and emails you have enough digital evidence to get a restraining order. What kinds of things are they saying? If they are threatening any physical violence at all you should be able to get a restraining order easily so that if they continue to contact you they are liable for prosecution. Can your mental health workers help you with this? Have you showed them the things your family are sending you?

Dear Mom and Dad,
I just can't deal with you any more. I've been pushing myself to be what you need, but I keep just falling over instead. I cannot be the guilt-infected child I have been forever, as you wanted when I was little and still want in my 40s. I had a marriage of the same caliber and same results, which I chose end. I'm leaving out tomorrow, and have chosen not to tell you because I can't handle another of your guilt-ridden lectures. You are going on vacation and I'm going on permanent vacation. I am not sorry. May you find peace.
Signed
A liberated child

Dear mom,

Why couldn't you consistently show me your love?

Why did you call me stupid when I couldn't read fast enough or solve math problems quickly enough?

Why did you resort to calling me "child" instead of my actual name whenever you were mad at me?

Why did you talk to me in such condescending tones of voice, use condescending gestures, facial expressions, and words?

Why were you always so overly critical of me?

Why did I seem to get treated a little worse than my brother?

Why did you abandon my brother and I before we were even in high school?

Why did you rely on me for emotional support when you returned, when I was supposed to rely on you?

Why did your partners start becoming more important than me?

Why did you tell dad I had plenty of food to eat when I didn't?

Why did you make me have to hate myself so much?


Dear dad,

Why didn't you help me when mom was unfair to me? Or when my brother was abusing me?

Why did you insist that "you're the parent," do nothing, and allow me to suffer?

Why did you hide in your room all day instead of being there for me?
