  • I hate my stepdad

    My step dad has been treating me like crap ever since I was little. Whenever I was younger I remember getting yelled at all the time by him. Once when I was in kindergarten I won a poster as an award, and my step dad ripped it up after getting angry one day. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Now I don’t remember all of my childhood, because I chose to block it all out due to this trauma. Now i’m 17 and things are still the same. He constantly verbally abuses my mother, and calls her a fat ass, and a ********** and that she’s a disgusting pig I hate this because I know it hurts her, he’s been doing this for a long time too. It makes me hate him even more. However even though he treats her like this she chooses to stay, and act like he doesn’t do any of this. With me, he’ll call me names like a **********, and tell me i’m not worth anything and I need to get the ******** out of his house (even though it’s our family house). His words do hurt, but what hurts even worse is my mom doesn’t do anything about it. I defend my mom every time he’s like this with her, but she yells at me for it. I’m always getting the worst of both ends. Things have gotten physical with my step dad too, one time he got mad at my mom for not getting her cinnamon sticks (a very stupid reason but it’s enough for him to call her names and hurt her. I told him something and he began to push me, my mom this time stepped in, after all of it though she told me to stop getting into her things. This confused me because didn’t she just realize what he had done? I don’t know what to do anymore, my mom doesn’t realize how badly this is affecting me. It hurts me that she’ll always choose his side, and she ignores me even though i try to protect her, she doesn’t do the same for me.
