when I was younger, I would get some money from my relatives on my b-day. I don't know why, but my mother always took them from me. When I got older, she stopped doing it, but it was a bit unpleasant. Though I think she just used them to buy something useful for me, otherwise I would spend them on candies or toys

My father was discussing something with other members of the family and I wanted to say something about it. He cut me off and said: you better shut up, your opinion is worthless. And I have another one: I studied in a private and expensive school well above our means but I was always the best of my class so we never had to pay tuition fees, except one year in which I was the second of the class and my father had to pay half of the tuition (which we could afford). He barely spoke to me for a month and when I told him that a second place was not a bad thing he answered: I don't care: second is as bad as last, only being first matter. Trying to keep up to that expectation for the following years gave me an ulcer and made me deal very badly with frustration and failure. Took me almost 20 years to learn that losing is just a lesson to be better, not the end of the world.

I use to write and when I was in the 4th grade I was one of the few chosen ones selected to visit some prestigious universities about writing etc. The selected ones were told to write and submit their best material and I did. My teacher gave one of mine back to me and said I could not submit this because I copied it from somewhere else. I didn't understand what she was talking about. I asked her who or where I copied it from and she said she didnt know but there was no way what I wrote I wrote on my own so I had to have copied it from somewhere. I told my parents and I dont even think they heard a word I said. They dismissed it or ignored it. Idk. But after that I stopped writing. What was the point if the stuff I wrote was going to bring about accusations of plagiarism and it really turned off that part of any creativity. I have 3 kids and they know I have their back. I make sure they know. If your own parents wont stick up for you who will? I never forgot it and I make damn sure my kids know I will always fight for them no matter what.

Last year, I asked my mom for money very frequently. So one day when I asked my mom for giving me some money for going on a trip. She told my father that, "After few days, Your daughter will be asking for money to hangout with her boyfriend." That seriously broke my heart. That my own mom doesn't trusts me then how would other people trust me?

The poetry one was so relatable I started writing when I was 12 ,I was ashamed to show it to anyone except my best friend ,I always have had a bit of anixety and I used to think I don't write good enough or my work is probably shitty but my bestie used to always scold me for thinking of myslef like that and once she said to show it to my mom who is a teacher but when I showed it to her she just read it and started ignoring me.when I asked her how is it?she would not even look at me and say it's fine.idid it 2-3 times her response and actions were sameafter that I stopped writing too
