Why I distrust all men, cry myself to sleep at night, feel unwelcome in my own home, & would cut my mom slack for anything.more...
He acts like a nice parent when guests are over, or we're in public, but once we're alone, he's a maniac. A bomb always waiting to blow, he snaps at the slightest provocation. My options are to let him get away with his abuse, or to stand up for myself & get the living crap beaten out of me.
We’ve only not kicked him out of the house because my mom was raised by an abusive father herself, so she doesn't know what it is to be treated right, & because she believes that children don't do well in single-parent households.
Every time I give him another chance, he proves me wise for not having been completely open with him since I was 8 years old.
He has failed at giving me the the sole thing I deserve: Unconditional love. Thanks to him, I've had to stay in the closet my entire life. Even when my heart was bursting at the seams with love for the first time, at the age of 13 years old, I couldn't go to my own father for advice.
Thanks to this thorough incompetence, I've basically had to raise myself.
Cherry on top: My family is wealthy, so whenever I drop even the slightest hint that I'm miserable with them, I get called a spoiled, ungrateful brat. I find this to be ironic - you would think that less fortunate people would understand even better than I do that the impact of material items on happiness pales in comparison to being accepted & loved...

|32.||Care Bear Stare|
1. An intense stare fueled by an equally intense emotion, e.g. love, hate, lust, concern.
2. An uncharacteristically long and concentrated stare; from the eponymous "Care Bear Stare," a special ability of Care Bears that allows them to shoot light from their belly symbols.
Jack: Hey man, who's that girl over there giving you the Care Bear Stare?
Ray: Oh, shit! That's the girl from the other night. I hit it then split it, and she's been blowing up my phone ever since. Let's dip before she comes over here.
