Tw: Abuse. What things did your parents do/did to you that passed off as normal for you.


Go to solution Solved by richerez,

Recommended Posts

1) threatening to smack me so hard that I’d be injured, have all my teeth smacked out, etc

2) being slapped in the first place

3) instead of talking or giving reasonable punishments, yelling and increasing punishments when I say anything at all.

4) getting slapped for grades 

5) when they’re mad, saying anything is backtalk 

6) expecting an A in everything all the time or else I’m a failure. A is passing, anything else is not.

 

what about you guys? What passed for normal?

Some of the things you listed above relate to me too, but because i grew up thinking it was normal, i got mad at myself and felt guilty for being mad at them for it. I felt ungrateful and hated myself , like at least i wasn't severely abused. It's gets confusing sometimes and very.. I dont know. Does this make sense? im writing this very haphazardly sorry.

Hello @richerez

I am glad to hear that you told someone in the end and that it's better for you now. Can I ask, do you feel like you're safe at home then? I'm guessing from what you've said that you are, but I just wanted to check.

Hello Naina. Thank you for sharing this with us. I'm going to message you privately if that's ok? I just want to check in and see if you're safe or not and then go from there. Take care. We are here for you.
