    not all variations are listed or even anticipated in the one way conversation i just read. our parents sexual behavior that we observe as we grow.we learn by example far more than we do by instruction.parents that sexually abuse their children also choose their children’s friends. parents that have substance problems sexual perversions consenting adults having affairs and we haven’t begun to address sexual gender or parents forcing a child into religion.children have no rights answer this one if all political candidates are approved by gov’t and one of them will win how can you make a mistake in voting ? and yet adults think they need to guide me. parents have to much latitude is the beginning of the problem that i could write about for days. adults are allowed to create a life without it’s permission and have control of it and children see they are also allowed to do this. i see the world that is before me and i don’t create the world i inherit.

    hi. im 21 years old, female. im at an all time low with depression. i’ve been alone most of my life. the last time i had a friend was third grade. i could not make any friends and nobody was willing to talk to me. so i could only talk to myself and my imaginary friends. living as a human is very hard. i never learned how to tie my shoes my grades are below average. im so lost. i’ve been to therapy since i started middle school. i cant read maps and im hideous. i still live at home and draw in coloring books. i just started exercising a little bit and eating a little better 4 days ago. i still have a long ways to go on learning how to dress and manage my hair.
