    I come from a divorced family. I have hateful parents, not towards me, but towards each other. I can’t stand it, the way they look at each other, the way they talk or act towards each other just irks me. I don’t blame my mother for ditching my father, who could? He was a dirty old, good-for-nothing, scumbag. Since he has left us, he hasn’t even given my mother and I a second thought. Since the divorce, I usually go to my father’s apartment on the weekend.

My so called friends would disown me and spread horrible rumors about me and my parents. They would tell everyone that my mother was a lady of pleasure and that was how she had lured my father. My “friends” also spread the word that I was just like my mother.…
