Rant it out.

I hate that my family treats my children different. They get less money on birthdays and just generally miss out on the free things like spending time with them and taking them to the park. What is your rant?

I hate my husbands depression. I hate his whole family has issues and just drains from us. While my family set us up in ways most people would dream of.

Some days I'm tired of being selfless to his depression and I just wanna scream ITS ABOUT ME TODAY

I hate myself for staying with my husband after his affair! I want to so badly pack up and leave, I am sick of the self blame and hate that I put on myself daily while he seems to be completely fine. I'm so angry and mad that I can't trust him anymore, I just wish he was upfront about it. I only know of one person, it kills and hurts me to think of how many others there were.
And this bit is the real kicker, some of them were men as well.

I want a divorce! I am so over "sticking it out" for the kids! I have no friends left to talk to, because since they all found out they have run for the hills. Frigging hate life!

 You've had the wrong friends then. If you were my friend you'd be furniture at my place (not leaving until you can smile again!).

 Well think of it this way, your kids grow up watching their mothers misery and goes knows how it ends. Maybe not staying is better in the long run and honesty when they're older?
Just an opinion.

I hate short people that drive big cars like the lady that nearly hit me at school pick up. Driving a giant Prado and couldn't see over the steering wheel.

Going to get shot for this but...
I'm over hearing about how hard my sister has it with her kid who act like a complete asshole all the time. She went to 7 Drs before one would diagnois ADHD. We're the first 6 all wrong or could it actually be a result of her constant half assed parenting. The kid is 8 and she allows him to have the mouth of a sailor! She gets carers, respite, all the help in the bloody world and never stops complaining. Our youngest was diagnosed with a serious heart defect yearlier this year. We have visited the Childrens hospital over 3hrs away 64 times this year and get no assistance! I just want to tell her to pull her head out of her a*s and be grateful for the help she gets because some people are dealing with a lot more on their own.

 Hugs to your little one

I hate that I have reasonably good dental hygiene. I brush i use mouth wash sometimes i even floss. Yet I'm the one curled on in pain when others who don't brush never seem to have a problem

I am tired of always having to be the "bigger person". I just want to be a bitch for once. Tell people what I truly think of them. None of these people were friends to begin with, but ones a "family" member and the other is a wife of my husband's good friend. Even though when I talk to these people, when no one is around they talk to me like a piece of shit. Treat me like I'm insignificant. But I'm suppose to just smile and get over it.

I hate how you can't have a proud moment of your child because they have done something early. I don't push my children but one is very smart, I'm not allowed to celebrate that because your kid is average or a little behind. I am so angry that I can't just be proud of my child for every achievement and why I can't brag about it but you can because yours is average or behind.

 I'd brag anyway lol. My daughter is lazy. 7 months and she's only just got the hang of rolling properly. She can't sit herself up, but if I sit her up she'll stay upright for ages lol. Brag away, as a person with a slow child I give you permission :)

 ^ I agree! Talk about poor me I'm so sick of not being able to brag because of shit that goes on in my head that I think is my reality.

 Other people brag about how good their kids are at sport so why not when your kid is good at academics? Seriously. Just talk about it. Bugger them. My niece reads at a year 9 level but she is in grade 3. She was told not to tell her friends. Again, I say bugger them. This is what she is good at and that can't be undone and should not be hidden.

 I think there is a difference between being proud and bragging. Bragging is when you go on and on.

 And people that brag do not acknowledge the achievements of others. They just talk about themselves.

I'm sick of my husbands attitude about money. Whenever he whinges we have none, I tighten our spending at home (he works away). But then he goes and spends heaps himself! Earlier this year he absolutely berated me on the phone because money went missing from our savings account. Money I told him was for a) bills and b) mothers day. His mother had an amazing gift from us (all expenses paid salon trip). Meanwhile all my mum got was breakfast in bed (I had all the shit delivered so my little sister could deliver it). And he went off his rocker thinking I'd used all that money on myself. I didn't even get a mothers day present. Like no pal, unlike yourself I don't go out and spend money on myself. I don't get new clothes (and when I do I get yelled at!), I don't go out and get haircuts or flights to the other side of the country, or tattoos, or even spend $7 a day on protein shakes after a workout. No, I get a set amount each week for groceries, and if I want to buy myself something, that's where it comes from! Even buying my newspaper once a week stopped because he chucked a tanty over the kids not eating enough fresh produce (excuse me our kids eat a f**k tonne of fruit and salad stuff, I'm not going to waste money on buying organic vegetables so they can waste them, they can waste the frozen stuff)

 Every you just said is so unhealthy for our body and mind. I hope it works out for you.

 What?

 I do a big shop one week and a small one the next so I can spend money on stuff I need.
helpful (0) 
 Thanks for the tip, I've started buying some items in bulk like baby wipes and nappies and spaghetti and stuff. But every time I get a little bit of money left over and think yeah okay I can spend this on myself, something always comes up. Like miss 4 needed new school shoes, or mr 3 had a growth spurt and needed new shirts. It's just a matter of patience I guess. Patience that even though my hubby can be a bastard, that's not how he is all the time. Patience to keep buying in bulk until I have a bit left over one week and can spend it on me.

I'm over my FIL and his depressive, attention seeking, immature, toxic attitude. I hate how he treats my husband. I hate that he's my husband's only living parent so my husband feels like he needs to keep him in his life. I hate his woes-me drama. I wish he would grow up!

Why are all the answers disappearing???
