I hate them, at least right now, especially my mum. Here's some background info: My mother accidentally came pregnant with me, and when i was a toddler, left my Dad because they always fought. Mum dropped out of school in Year 9, has smoked since 15yrs old, and has little work experience. She's been unemployed ever since she quit at a photography printng business. She only got the job then because my father worked there at the same time. Mum now is unemployed, but cleans her friends houses for like 50 a week or something. She married my now step-dad when I was sixish and now we live all live together with my six year old sister. My step-father is the 'bread-winner', he works full-time as a landscaper. Both my parents smoke very regularly, don't eat very well, and I think they are very consumed by their comfort zones. My mum is a bitch, simply put. She makes me out to be the bad guy in every argument. My step dad always takes her side, but rarely gets involved. Here's an example of a fight we had, this one happened just 15 mins ago: Mum's raging because I havn't put my towel up. I keep telling her to calm down, it's just a towel. She carries on and on until I looked her in the eyes and told her to shutup. I left and went to my room. And she kept raging as told her that she's a horrible person. I implied several times that I was going to put it my towel up in a second. She went outside screaming, saying that she hates "every single one of us" (as in the whole family). She uses the most rude tone of voice, and makes mean remarks. I stand up to her, I don't feel like she should be allowed to act like god just because she's my mum. She says that I don't have the righht to 'back-chat' and raise my voice to her because she's the mother, and I'm the son. One of the things I HATE about my parents is that they don't support my dreams. I want to be a professional footballer, they kkow this very well. I work my ********ing ass off to live my dream. They complain about having to drive me to training/games, they simply won't ever buy me new gear (boots etc.), when I need it they chase up my grandparents for money, stingy as when they have the money. They never say that they are proud of me. I'm on my own in developing my future. Also, in general, they don't give me money for shit. I am trying so hard to get a job, but it's not happening. /end rant. I can't tell if I'm just being a stupid teenager with no real problems or if my parents really are doing me wrong. All comments/advice apreciated.
