In response to a confession. Also, everything has an aftermath and consequences, and you can't predict what's going to happen until it does. You cannot take one situation and apply it to everything. I had to cut my family off because they raised me in an abusive, borderline culty religious home and it caused my mother to develop a drinking problem. Did I feel guilt, pain and trauma over that? Absolutely I did. Were there longterm consequences? Yes, there was. And there would've been consequences if I'd stayed. That doesn't mean the fact that you feel the choice you made was wrong applies to every other unhappy family dynamic out there. And I don't think someone being described as an "aggressive bully" is a "minor inconvenience." Honestly that sounds like gaslighting.

In response to a confession. You're still talking about YOUR situation, which is irrelevant here. Here's a different situation for you. A friend of mine ended up dead because she didn't cut an abuser out of her life, and he was not even violent to her or physically abusive, just extremely controlling and verbal/emotionally abusive until he was and he decided to kill her. It's really irresponsible to tell someone they should stay in someone's life when you have no idea what the situation is. It doesn't sound to me like a "minor inconvenience" it sounds to me like she has an abusive relationship with her father. She could literally end up dead. Your comments are irresponsible.

In response to a confession. Respectfully, I disagree. I think we're more than willing to cut people off for even the most minor of inconveniences. We're even praised for doing so. But nobody wants to talk about the aftermath and consequences of cutting people out of your life. My mental health is no better than it was before, and my mom was abusive and did cause me to be suicidal. Everything she did to me affects my every day decisions even when I don't want it to. Obviously, everyone experiences things differently, but it's important to highlight the bad parts as well as the good.

In response to a confession. Sorry about your dad, but you have no idea what the situation is. The word "aggressive" could mean many things, including physical. What if this is making her suicidal? What if he's physically aggressive? It's not appropriate to make suggestions like that without knowing the situation. Expecting someone to stay in an abusive relationship for the sake of someone else is not appropriate. if the other party loves you, then they will come around a lot of the time, it might also make them wise up and realise they deserve more than than a "nasty, aggressive bully" as a partner.

In response to a confession. As miserable as it may be, stick to them. My biggest regret is that I cut out my abusive mom and it broke my dad. He died a year later. I lost an entire year with him because I wasn't willing to put up with her shit any longer. I regret that more than any other wrong thing I've done in my entire life.

I want to cut my dad out of my life because he's a nasty, aggressive bully. Unfortunately he's still married to my mom and it would crush her, and I don't think I can get her to understand. It fucking sucks.

I have had an all around horrendous day. Started a migraine in the middle of car line, 1st kid was late to pickup bc he was "talking", which caused us to be late for 2nd kid and late for 2nd kids doc appt. Then we had to grocery shop, H couldn't be bothered to help, and I get home and H has a WHOLE PERSON at the house. So I'm unloading all the shit, helping the kids, trying not to panic. My house is 1ksqft. I haven't been home all day, its a mess, I have a migraine, and they're expecting dinner. So i do that and now they're hanging out at fucking 9pm making a racket and drunk. But when I pitch a fit tomorrow, which I will be doing, I'm going to be the bad guy. I fucking hate how clueless and self absorbed he is when he's drunk. It's got to stop. I can't do it anymore.

I am right on track to become a bitter old lady. I should probably choose my favourite cat breed now so I can stock up.

We don't have leash laws here and I'm glad, I have no problem with people who can successfully control their dogs off leash having them off leash. But there are so many Covidiots who bought a dog because they were bored and have no fucking clue what they are doing running around now, and my dog hates being approached by other dogs. A cheeky bitch actually said to me she wouldn't walk hers on the leash because he pulls her. Great, so you're telling me you can't control him on the leash or off. Good job, Brenda, maybe you should buy a fucking succulent next time. Also, I just love that everybody else has to deal with your dog's problems because you can't be bothered to train him to walk on a lead properly.

Today I had lunch with someone who was my best friend 20 years ago. Life happened, I moved away, etc. After six years of not seeing each other we decided to make time. She looks SO bad! She walks with a cane, can hardly move, has a myriad of medical problems, an ex-con son who lives with her and his puppy who has chewed through her furniture and clothes. We had an awesome 2 1/2 hours together and I walked away making a promise that I will not complain about sore knees or neuropathy again.
