I grew up thinking that this was normal, because suggesting otherwise was taboo. My parents are always fighting and being cruel to each other. The very thought of them being affectionate is weird and makes me cringe.
They are still married. My dad works abroad though, so I imagine that they are not divorced yet for the sake of convenience. He is coming to visit us soon and my mum has prepared the sofa for him to sleep on. He doesn't know that he will be sleeping on the sofa yet though, so it's going to be one hell of an ugly fight.
I'm stuck here until I finish paying off a debt, but I hate it. The environment is so toxic that I just wish that they would get the divorce that Mum keeps banging on about already. Has anyone here lived through a dysfunctional family situation? How do you cope with it without going insane?
Have you done any of these?
