Is there something wrong with me that even my parents dont say that tehy love me. All my life I cant remember my parents ever saying that they love me, and now at the age of 22 I am depressed and look to my parents but they just call me stupid for being depressed. Is there something wrong with me that they cant even say that they love me.

I'm sorry to hear this. I'm sure there's a good reason for this. How was your childhood overall? Did they buy you things? Some people show emotions in different ways, parents included. They may get you something that you want, but never really make eye contact, you know? You should try talking to them and telling them how you feel. They may not even know that they are hurting you.

There is nothing wrong with you my friend. All parents are like that. parents never tell there children that they love them very much. you can only feel that love but will never hear from your parents that they love. Even if your parents never tell they love you but you will feel the love when you are with them. No matter what your parents say's they love you more then any other thing in the whole world. I knew this this because my parents never told me that they love me. But i feel that love when i am with them. Even in my parents anger i can feel love.
