I remember having an anxiety attack when I was 18 and my mom trying to give me an Ativan. No thanks, I don’t want to become a prescription drug addict like you.

Sorry not sorry, I am suspicious of a teacher who is failing more than half her students, and then offers tutoring to those students for $30/hour.

I hate the assumption people have that, because I'm a mom, I like kids. I don't. I love my babies but most other kids drive me nuts.

Sometimes, I like hearing from my exH, because I like the chance to tell him off for the 80 millionth time. I never initiate contact, but if he chooses to, he can deal with my wrath.

My friend lies about the severity of her illness so she can get free things.

Really want to know what people think of you, or what kind of people they truly are- elope. Not one single congratulations, just a lot of bitter/pissed of family members and friends who're giving us shit and the cold shoulder. We made the right choice.

Literally the day after moving in with SO I knew it was a mistake. This is his place we just live here. I don’t know how I’ve lasted this long. But I’ll tell y'all. This is the last. I can’t do this. I don’t want this &I don’t care what he does anymore.

I've been in a drunken stupor for the better part of a year....realizing how out of control my house, cars, children have gotten now that I've been sober for a week. Never go back to that crap.

Have a friend that calls me daily. In 10 years she has NEVER said a kind word when I tell her good news. Not a "congratulations" or a "way to go" or even a "that's nice". Just uncomfortable silence until I change the subject. I really want to ghost her.

I'm so glad i spent 5 hours of my only day off cooking for H, for him to come home in a foul mood and pick a fight with me before he even sat down to the table. Do all husbands sabotage nice family dinners?? The asshole can make himself cereal next time.

Got a pedicure at a nail salon today. When I went to pay there was a man in front of me paying for his wife's nails. I felt a twinge of jealousy & sadness. My DH would never do that for me.

Honestly thought SAHM’s should keep everything spotless/have dinner waiting. I’m not that old fashioned, thought it fair since the other partner is commuting & working 8 hours. Haha dumb bitch. Joke is on me... SAHM for 4 years. Didn’t factor in the kids.

One thing I've learned is to drop those friends that aren't TRULY happy for you when you have good news. We all have those friends that pretend to be happy but are passive aggressive, make barbed comments & are only happy when bad shit happens. DROP EM!

I enjoy sex and it feels nice enough, but I can't relate to the "I'm so horny I'll do anything" feeling.

H says I never listen to him when he needs to vent. Really? Who listens to me? Certainly not h because no matter what I say he turns out back around to talking about himself and his perceived problems. I need to vent too

I fucking hate being a mom. Mainly the bullshit about non stop appointments and obligations, resolving petty ass arguments and trying to make EVERYTHING fuckin fair

I find it off when women I work with say they think SAHMs should do everything around the house. I can't even imagine thinking about asking my kids nanny to do everything and I pay her well. She would laugh, smack me, laugh and then send me to work.

I'm not sure if my throat hurts more from being sick, or from my husband choking me out on the ground in front of our kids the past night. What's wrong with me?

I feel guilty for wanting to divorce DH. He's done nothing wrong, and other women would think he's a great catch (they'd be right), but I just fell out of love w/him. Now that the kids are gone, I just want to be with a lover - not a friend and roommate

I hate people with perfect memory. I've known 3 of them, and each was a pain in the ass because she expected everyone else to remember EVERY detail of EVERY event - forever. If you're not, you're condescended to as if you're both stupid and lazy.

Had a friend who, before I was a mom, got divorced and pretty much handed her kids over to her exH and didn't come around much. Didn't understand how she could do that @ the time, but 2 kids later I completely understand.

Had a crying, mental breakdown today, in public, with my DC 1 & 3. Is parenting ever less overwhelming? This is the life ive dreamed about since I was a kid, yet I'm fucking miserable...

ExH only wants me when it’s beneficial for him and makes it his life’s work to make me feel lesser than. Jokes on him, I’m dating and fucking more now than ever before. Your loss asshole.

I'm so confused by my husband, a few months ago he was ready to try for baby number 3 (I wasn't ready yet) and now that I have finally decided I'm ready he says "I'm not ready yet"... Seriously how are you all the sudden not ready....

A health scare made me decide to record videos to my future grandkids. The usual "Happy Birthday!" messages, but mostly "life's truths" advice I wish I'd listened to growing up. Stuff like "The rules DO apply to you" and "You're not fooling anyone"

My life has been nothing but trauma and heartache and pain the last several years that my face is in a permanent frown. I don’t even know how to smile anymore.

I wish I knew what is so unlikable about me. I want to improve but I don't know what to work on. Wish I had the funds to hire an image consultant because they would be straightforward about it.

the best thing I have come to realize, is that I only have to do right by myself and I end up being a better mom and a better partner. Call it selfishness or whatever you want but it makes me happier .So much power in a life that you live as you want

I am surprised when some of my friends feel being a SAHM is a right. I don't think it is, and I think it's okay to marry a man who doesn't make enough to support an entire household on his own. But that fucker had better do housework and childcare!
