I grew up with a mother and a father who always provided for me and my sibling's. Anything i wanted i always got i guess u can say i was spoiled. One thing that i never had from them was love, my family never showed any affection we never say that we loved each other. My Mother was a very private person never really showed her emotions unless she was mad, but other then that you would think that she's a very strong women. My father was a hard working man but he cheated on my mother for yrs, as i grew older and wanted to go to experience things like other teens would like hanging out with friends sleepover and such but i couldn't. My father selterd me and never let me go anywhere. I was always in the house, my friend would often ask why i couldnt come over her house or spend the night or just go to a park. To him i was always doing something i wasn't supposed to. My older sister got pregnate at 17 an she was also treated the same way. It sucks because i feel like ive missed out on alot of things and life experices. I am 20 now and it feels like i am just now experiencing life. Ive never had a boyfrind part of it is my own insercurites because i feel like i wouldnt know how to love someone because no one ever showed me love i've never felt love from my family, so how can i love someone if i've never felt loved?
