Teenage AdviceWhat is a "dysfunctional family"?

Dysfunctional and functional describe ways that families communicate and deal with problems. Dysfunctional families usually don't have the skills to handle stressful events or problems, and they can't always make the best choices for coping with life's challenges.

 

In dysfunctional families, parents may deny problems within the family, insist that the children keep secrets (about alcoholism or violence at home, for example), and discourage children from developing relationships outside the family circle.

 

Teenage AdviceWhat is "emotional abuse"?

Emotional abuse is usually defined as verbal attacks like put-downs, accusations, and criticism. People who are targets of emotional abuse begin to think it's their fault, and their self-esteem suffers. Emotional abuse in relationships often develops into physical abuse.

I have been emotionally abused by family and been blamed for almost everything and even my uncle's wife (she doesn't deserve to be called my aunt cause she is a backstabbing gold digger using my uncle for his hard earned money) she talked bad about me and my aunt ( like a mother) and my cousin( like a sister ) but my aunt and cousin was to my face but then I told them cause I thought they deserved to know the truth about what she truly is and then as soon as I told them the whole truth next thing you know she is talking about me and saying insulting things about me saying low blows that NO ONE in my family would ever say and since then I will not forgive her she is dead to me

Sometimes i feel emotionally abused especially when someone blames everything on me instead of finding out how the problem started.

Sometimes I feel emotionally abused from my mother. She insults me, puts me down, sometimes I lock myself in the bathroom and cry for an hour because I know I'll never bee my little sister, my parents little princess and they will never notice what goes on with me. Sometimes I wish I was either dead or never born. I will never be the girly girl they want me to be . I will always be me just a tomboy

Dear girls, There's something very important to understand here, when people insult you and you feel hurt, and your self-esteem is lowered, who are you thinking about? Yourself of course. When you feel bad about yourself, and you have that low self-esteem, people won't want to be your friend as much because you're only thinking about yourself. Instead of thinking of yourself so much, why not try to think of and help others? Don't talk to your friends about how ugly or stupid you are,friends hate that. They have to try and console you over and over again and it gets annoying. Instead ask about their lives and get to know them better.

@gabby67767 That depends on what you mean by "look better". Do you honestly think you should be with him because you two would "look good together"? Think about your crush, not yourself. If he's happy, you should be too. You shouldn't try to sabotage his relationship because you're feeling jealous, if it's not meant to be, they will break up, be patient. A good thing to do would be to be a good friend, someone he can talk to. Then when they break up you'll be a good candidate for a girlfriend. Give him time though, and don't force yourself on him.

I definitely have a dysfunctional family, my twin brother lives in a whole other seperate house while my dad takes care of him part time because he can not get along with my mom. It's annoying as HELL. #Be happy if your family is together !

Green Day & Music is how I keep my confidence. I can connect or agree with every Green Day song I've ever heard. That means that I have somebody who understands me. As long as there is somebody out there. I feel like I'm unloveable but their music changed that opinion of myself. If your going through something theres a song out there that will touch your heart and soul and connect with you. You will feel that somebody understands even if you will never meet them :)
