Lately my family has had too many arguments and I hate it. Somehow I am always brought into the argument out of the blue -.- it is ridiculous how this always happens and when I am involved I am always wrong. I am the youngest of seven brothers and I never get to say what I want to say, it kills me inside. My parents hardly hear me out it is always well what did you do? just let them talk, no that is not wrong i have not once been heard only by my friends and it sucks. They talk all rudely to my parents at times and they let them like are you serious these guys need serious realization that they are so wrong and it is ridiculous how they get away with it. They take advantage of my kindness -.- but one of these days I don't know I am going to loose and tell them off I am sorry this has gone long enough I just want to know if anyone understands me. :/

I used to feel the same way as you do before when I was still living with my parents. I never, share things with them specially personal stuffs and my father hs this attitude that we are not allowed to speak out to reason out. I know it is very rude and I feel so bad about it. But now, I realize that maybe we are also inconsiderate with their feelings because we are too busy mnding our emotions. Try to sit down and reach out. Maybe you just need to think of a different approach to express what you feel.

Yeah that is what I try to do a different approach which is why I haven't blown up on them nor is it what I want. You are right though I see I the inconsideration on my part but it is hard to reach out when they refuse but I will try my best to do so. Thanks dianon

It's not my parents who I am against it's my brothers they take my money I have been working since last year 18 years old and gave half of every paycheck to my parents to help out of course and my brothers still asking me for money and my parents say lend it to them I'll pay you back why do my parents cover for them? I lend it to my brother not them. Also my dad has played me he would ask for more money for a bill or whatever and then gave it to my brother for a getaway to Vegas like what are you serious here I am busting my butt to pay for his little trips he's done it several times to me it is ridiculous how my brothers are when it comes to me asking for money from any of them it's straight up a no. But they use my dad to get money out of me. Because of it now we are all in a tight spot living with relatives crowded in a small house it kills me inside nothing I say matters because I am the youngest.
