I remember the comments my dad made when my mom went on business trips: “Why do you have to always go on these business trips when you’re the only woman on the team?” “You’re always surrounded by men.” “You’re probably cheating on me already with these guys.”

Jealousy.

My mom only ever ignored him.

My mom only ever ignored him. No rebuttal. Just a face devoid of emotion. Just like a robot.

She hated him and I’m pretty sure he did too.

She always told me my dad’s the jealous one and that I’m just like him, seeing as he stayed home with me during the day while she worked (he worked nights).

I think she wanted a boy, first off.

They are proof that more people need to make sure they really love the partner they plan on creating life with, and by really love I mean you love the positive and negative traits of said partner without wanting to give up.

If you think it impossible to love the negative parts, you need to find an understanding in compromise.

Because if you don’t really love them, you may end up with two people you love but also despise at the same time.

Because if you don’t really love them, you may end up with two people you love but also despise at the same time. That inner turmoil does no one good.

Years are raised voices, insecurities and communication failures led to addictions.

Years are raised voices, insecurities and communication failures led to addictions. One in particular being an addiction to shopping.

My mom, noticing that I preferred my dad, began buying me anything and everything to buy my love, in a sense.

I only ever wanted their presence,

I only ever wanted their presence, not presents.

The sad thing is, many (especially people I know) would read this and think of me as mean and unappreciative.

I would have to immediately disagree because even if my parents did much worse to our family,

I would have to immediately disagree because even if my parents did much worse to our family, I would still love them.

I think that says a lot about who I am.

I think that says a lot about who I am. Loyalty is everything.

I think that says a lot about who I am. Loyalty is everything. Loyalty and keeping the jealousy at bay, of course.
