I am not the only child. But I feel like one. I feel like one because my father releases his anger and frustrations about my mother. I feel like one because my mother releases her anger and frustrations about my father.
I am not the only child. It’s bad enough I have to hear my father talk all this skewed, rotten things about her, I have to hear that from my mother too. Again I say
I AM NOT THE ONLY CHILD!!!
Don’t make me be that. I feel so pressured when I hear you fight. Then I have to hear each parent rant and rave. I’m being shit upon twice over and let me tell you, maybe I helped you feel better by listening but I don’t want to be your emotional dumping ground.
Hell, I don’t even tell you my real emotional issues, why am I being subjected to hearing your propagandas about each other, as though forcing me to pick a side?
It makes me so angry that I have to shoulder all these fears and insecurities about my parents just because I’m the one who’s at home the most.
I am twenty-one, but that doesn’t make me more adult about issues like my father and my mother. I need you both to be that to me, and not make me your emotional dumping ground the way you would a friend.
I am not your only child, please don’t shit on me so much.
