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
