Am I just "too sensitive" like my parents claim?

They often times make "jokes" about how I need to talk less, ask if I have an off button, my stepmom has referred to me as my dad's "scamming daughter", my dad has told me I'm easy to make fun of and my stepmom has told me before that she can't blame all the families issues on me anymore because there were still arguments despite me not living with them anymore. She makes "jokes" also saying to go play in traffic or about locking me in a closet with duct tape on my mouth but when I get upset they tell me all parents make jokes like that, that I'm too sensitive and need to lighten up and stop taking things so seriously. They also claim I'm mentally ill if I get mad at them yet they also think I "subconsciously fake" issues. I don't know how to feel about this because I've heard this is emotional abuse. Are they right though? #pleaseanswer #EmotionalAbuse #Parents #sensitivity #personal


How do you stop caring about what your parents think of you?

Some of my family members can be emotionally abusive, namely my dad and stepmom. I've been asking myself for at least the past few months if I should stop talking to them and it's been recommended to me that I distance myself from them. But my dad is willing to go to family therapy with me. I get so confused with them and half the time I don't trust my own perceptions. I end up taking their opinions more seriously than my own and I'm tired of feeling like I can't trust myself. #Parents #EmotionalAbuse #confused #pleaseanswer #helpneeded #Relationships

I'm 21 and have no idea what to do with my life. I thought I wouldn't even be alive this long honestly. How do you live a life you didn't want?
