How do you talk to your parents about the way you’re feeling when they brush everything off their shoulders pretending nothing is wrong?
For example; while I was in my abusive relationship, both mom and dad KNEW it was happening. They were aware of it 100% and decided to not confront me about it or help me because ‘I’m an adult and have to deal with my own problems’.
When I was 8, I walked into a door and broke my toe in 2 places and my parents didn’t do anything about it until a month later when my tap teacher confronted them saying I NEED to get X-rays done because I was STILL limping.
My mom saw my scars about 2 months ago, asked what they were and when I replied with ‘nothing’, she left it at that.
So, what do I do when I need my mom, but she doesn’t act like a mom? What does a daughter do when she can’t talk to her mommy…? What does a girl do when she needs help and there’s no one there to help her?
Dear Kassy, no one can diminish you but you but yourself. There are a lot of shitty people in the world, but know that there are people out there who love and care about you, and want to see you succeed. You have been hurt, and stepped on. Many of us know this pain, you are not alone. You have a beautiful smile, and a good heart. You just need to have confidence in yourself. Without confidence, people will take advantage. There are people who love you Kass...let them love you.
