I used to think that it was normal when parents didn't kiss often or say I love you often or fight often. And then one day when I was 9 or 10 my best friend came over to my house for a sleepover. She asked me why my parents always fought, and if they loved each other. I had never really noticed before then that my parents weren't very normal. From then on I realized that my sister had taken care of me most of my life because my parents were always too busy being at each other's throats. I became so jealous of other kids whenever I saw them having a perfect family life. My dad is Catholic and it's really against his religion to get a divorce. I guess that's why I hate religion now. My mom needs the money my dad makes as an accountant so that's why she sticks around. Also, her parents got divorced multiple times and she didn't want me and my sister to go through the "same trauma". But in all honesty, it only makes matters worse. My sister now has an apartment and is going to college out of state, so it's like I'm an only child. It was okay before because I had her, but now I have no one. Especially now in quarantine, there's no escape out of the house. I can't wait until I can leave and live on my own. I'm so sick of this.
