Mom: Stays with my toxic dad, always says that she's gonna leave when they fight, does not understand my feelings most of the time, forgave my dad even after she witnessed me get hurt verbally by him, asks me to forgive my dad when he has said vial things to her and I, and is stubborn. Dad: Toxic, accuses my mom of cheating when he was the only one to have cheat throughout the whole marriage, chooses his friends over his kids, make promises but never keeps them, invalidates my feelings, doesn't take accountability for his actions, doesn't work despite having 4 kids and bills to pay, has said "fuck you" to me when I told him how he makes me feel, sexualizes me, thinks my mom is teaching me how to be a slut if she allows me to go to my boy best friends house often (the only place I feel happy), wonders why I dont go to him when he does and says a lot of toxic things, has a smoking problem, says sorry continuously but chooses to make the same mistakes, is stupid, and failed as a parent. Moral of the Story: The one thing I WILL accomplish in life is being the best parent I could be and will be better parents than my parents ever could be to me. I will never make them feel unwanted or unappreciated. I will never slut shame or sexualize my child. I will never invalidate their feelings. I will never make them grow up in a toxic household or a household where they feel unsafe. I will leave their dad and take them with me if he can't do his job as a parent. I will never choose my friends over them. I will never make them feel as if they need to hide things from me. I will be understanding and adaptable with them. And I will love them and make them feel the love I have for them.
