To My Lying, Cheating Stepfather: We're Better Off Without You

The days of abuse are over.

To My Lying, Cheating Stepfather: We're Better Off Without You

Dear Narcissist,

Your time is coming to a close. After all the years of abuse and torment, your reign of terror will soon be over.

No longer will you be allowed to control every aspect of our lives.

No longer will you be able to make us feel like lesser human beings.

No longer will people think you are the victim.

It's over.

They will see you for what you really are, not for what you pretend to be. A control freak, an abuser, a liar, an all around mean person. Your behavior over the years will not go unnoticed, no matter how hard you've worked to turn it around on us. I must say, you have done a fantastic job of wearing the good father, great husband mask; but not everyone is as naive as those of which you have poisoned against us.

Think of all the memories you have destroyed for us by the way you acted. Every vacation, family outing, day trip, and school function ruined because of your meaningless arguments that seemed to just never end. Think of all the bonding you could have done with your daughter if you were just a nice person. Guess what? She is old enough now to realize that is not normal behavior. She sees through you like a pair of binoculars. She sees how you treat her mother, she hears the nasty words you call her as if it's normal to talk like that in front of a child or to a woman. She sees the emails and text messages. She sees it all. She knows.

All of the taunts, threats, arguments, humiliation, and degradation will come to the light. The days of threatening to leave us cold in the streets are over. We don't need you, we have each other. We have family who loves us and would never let us be without shelter. What do you have? Nothing. Your own family avoids you. I don't blame them.

The people who are on your side will soon realize how much of a lying cheat you are. They will see that you are the problem, they will see a side you would never dare to make public. Everything you say will lose all credibility. You will have nothing but the haunting echo of your own thoughts slowly eating away at you to the point where you will want to rip your hair out and scream. That's what you have to look forward to, a life with no meaning.

You would rather have "friends" and money than be there for your family, and that's sad. Friends are temporary, but family is forever. You will realize this when you're on your deathbed and looking around at an empty room. Your daughter won't be there--nobody will be there. And that's what you deserve. Be ready for what you have coming to you, because karma is sneaky, and she will surprise you when you are least expecting it. Enjoy spending eternity in hell, because that's where you're going. Have a nice life, loser.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
