  • My Step-Dad Hates Me

    I am a 14 year old male, and haven't had my real dad in my life in 10 years, I went about 9 years fatherless, so obviously i'm not perfect, but my step-dad expects me to be able to anything, and everything correct every time, and if I make a mistake, I'm grounded, and i'm grounded 24/7. He hates me so much I feel like, he repeatedly calls me names such as, "Faggot," "Gay," "Worthless" "Retarded," and it really hurts my feelings, I take a lot of things personal. I try to be perfect a lot, but that just doesn't seem to be the right way to raise a kid. I try talking to my mom about it, but she just switches the topic basically. I know that my situation isn't as bad as a lot of peoples, I really just need someone to talk to. He loves my sister, she never gets grounded, and is a worse kid then I am, I just feel like I can't do anything right, EVER, I can understand why he calls me "worthless."
