    I’m emotionally/psychologically abused by my parents. I’m going to leave a list of their actions here for you to better understand the situation.

    • parent insulted and devalued something really important to me
    • parent deprived me of something that meant the world to me
    • parent yelled and swore at me in anger more than once
    • parent blamed me for things that were out of my control/not my fault
    • parent shamed me for my physical appearance
    • parent trapped me into a room/corner so I couldn’t escape them
    • parent threatened to hit me if I wouldn’t do as they say
    • parent guilt-tripped me for not pleasing them well enough
    • parent regarded me as a burden, shaming me for needing them at all
    • parent insisted I couldn’t take a joke after I got hurt from their insults
    • parent never comforted me/got angry if I reached for comfort
    • parent punished me for crying/showing fear/showing trauma symptoms
    • parent insisted that their harmful acts were all made “out of love”
    • parent subtly let me know that my feelings and my problems don’t matter
    • parent got angry at me for feeling depressed/angry/tired/suicidal
    • parent blamed me for feeling depressed/angry/tired/suicidal
    • parent compared me to cousins/other children to prove how I’m the worst
    • parent decided for me how I feel when it was convenient for them
    • parent told me that I was crazy/delusional/need to be locked away
    • parent threatened me with kicking me out/sending away if I don’t change
    • parent insisted that I was lucky and that I could have had it much worse
    • parent kept pointing out my flaws as proofs that I won’t achieve anything
    • parent called me stupid, incompetent, ignorant, while withholding information that I needed to know in order to complete tasks

    • parent stalked me/distrusted me without any reason/invaded my privacy
    • parent attacked my insecurities and vulnerabilities in any argument
    • parent accused me regularly of behaving the way they did
    • parent always demanded they are right without any proof/explanation
    • parent insisted that they’re a great parent using financial support as proof
    • parent insisted that I should be grateful for how good they are to me
    • parent gas lighted me and tried to make me believe my memories weren’t real if I confronted them with what they did
    • parent insisted since they “pay for my stuff” they have the right to control my behavior and actions
    • parent didn’t notice I suffered from trauma
    • parent didn’t notice I was anxious and stressed
    • parent didn’t notice I was depressed
    • parent didn’t notice I was cutting myself
    • parent didn’t notice I was suicidal
    its very psychologically damaging and I literally can’t take it anymore. I don’t know what to do. I’m an only child so there are no witnesses except for them. I already told the social worker at my school about it, but she is best friends with my parents and said that’s "just how they are". It’s really confusing as they act like this half of the time, but they act "normal" the other half of the time. During their bad moods, they justify their actions constantly with "you could have it worse", and it really makes me believe things they say about me because of the times that they act normal. As in, "they can’t be abusive, they were being nice earlier!"
