    The relationship between me and my mother was never good. Quite the opposite IMO. Nowadays, it's better than before, but far from good.
    My father, however, I never knew him untill my mother threw me out and left me with no choice than to move to my father I hardly knew... We come along, but he hardly know me. That may be because I don't let him into my personal life. And I don't think I make it very easy for him, but I am who I am.
    I got step-family too, and the only one I like, is my step-brother, which is a nice guy. And my step-mother, which is ok.
    The rest of them I dislike, and they know it.

    Currently, the relationship I have with my parents is better than it has ever been.

    Both of my parents are climbing in age and are starting to fall apart. My father has had more surgeries than anyone I know. His heart is almost gone. My mother is falling apart as well. I have devoted my life to having a great relationship with them because I finally realize that they wont be here forever.

    It's funny though. All of the fighting and misery that I had when I was young has just flown completely out of the window. None of that bullshit matters. It never mattered, and I see that now. True maturity is realizing that your parents were not and are not perfect, but that their main priority was YOU!
    As children, we are not capable of understanding that.

    I understand that now, as a parent of two.

    I can't say. Things were bad from the beginning and got worse until they reached a crisis but that didn't fix anything, it only resulted in my losing the ability to live a normal life and so I went on and on and on, falling into traps and holes along the way and occupying myself purely with getting out of these and trying to continue under circumstances that were unbelievably bad and eventually became unbearable. By the age of fourteen I was determined to commit suicide on my sixteenth birthday. I am still here, so I must have got out of that hole as well. I have held the gun in my hand many times. What has stopped me? My animals. The thought of not seeing another sun globe descend into the far mountains and turn the sky red. I have never spoken of what happenend so I can't do so here. It is all still sitting there inside the darkness behind the mask.

    I understand how it is for those who have said certain things here so far. I empathise with you.

    I think the only way to solve these problems is to have a family of your own, if you are able to, and to undo the past through treating your children differently. Being aware of what happenend to you and when these things crop up in your role as parent, changing the past by doing something different. It's like going back in a time machine and altering the future by changing the past except that you will be altering the future by changing the present.

    Your kids won't know what they could have had instead and this will be your greatest triumph over what happenend to you.

    Re: Your relationship with your parents

    Good with mother, also with father. Since I lived with the former after their divorce, the latter has become distant. Our relationships have always been on excellent terms, but it has been unfortunate not to know my father better. Still my mother has more admirable qualities in general, and is a better role model.

    AW: Your relationship with your parents

    The relationship to my parents is not so good. That is due to my National Socialist beliefs; they cannot understand how someone who was raised in tolerant, democratic and humanistic surroundings could become such an evil, cold blooded and anti-democratic person, not putting the health and condition of the individual above everything. It is quite sad that it is this way and that it will probably never change, for I do not consider myself an "evil" person. I also do not think that I am cold blooded or a hater. But my parents do not understand National Socialism, they believe in the propaganda image supplied by the system. I have tried to explain to them that National Socialism is something else for so many times, yet, it feels like talking with walls.

    Nichts kann das zerstören, was auf der Wahrheit aufgebaut ist. Wir sind das reine Gold, das im Schmelztiegel getestet werden kann. Der Schmelztiegel möge glühen und prasseln. Nichts kann uns zerstören. Eines Tages werden wir uns erheben und wieder triumphieren. Hofft und wartet!

    And what is so bad about you that you believe this about yourself? Do you not think that with some hefty self-therapy you could turn what you have experienced into positive wisdom for others? And if you become wise and capable children would be able to learn from you. But, of course, only after you are able to come to terms with yourself and your past. You are right not to dive into making babies when you are still wearing the wounds of your own past.

    But these can be healed. You have a right to be reasonably happy about yourself. Sometimes other people who are carrying their own wounds still unhealed make war on others. This circuit can be stopped. It requires that some of us step out of the cycle and agree that it will not continue and that we shall use what we know to make the world a better place for all children and make those constantly bleeding wounds dry up and become just battle scars from conflicts of long ago.

    I would advise you to give this a go before you give up on a life for yourself through a family of your own. You are here, for a start. This means you are looking for something. That is the first step on the ladder to recovery. What happens next is whether or not you can find anything that will help you climb.

    I hope you can. There is no reason why you should have to be made unhappy by circumstances beyond your control. They will cause strife while you are under their influence, but you have the power to turn things around.

    You must get this power and this wisdom for yourself out of what you know and what you can do. You will slowly shed that old skin and emerge in a new strong skin, with battle scars, it's true, but also with new weapons, new tools and a new road to travel on. Because you will make that road out of the raw materials you select along the way. Always make sensible choices and discard without hesitation all the things, and people, that will only hurt you more.

    Bon voyage. It's a longish road but the only way to get onto it is to take that first step.

    I have made steps to try patch things up with my mother of late as i miss her but little changes and things just dont feel right when im with her.Everything feels fake and forced for some reason.My relationship with my father is at a very low level now can not relate to someone who is drunk all the time.My mother has started to come around my house now to help (force as seems more like whats going on) my father to redecorate the house it would seem like she is setting up a back up plan for when her crazy lifestyle dies down she can just walk back into the house so there is a lot of confusion right now.
