(Maybe) I'm Back, I guess - June 3rd 2018, 02:57 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I was here a few years ago with some guilt and some insecurities. I left and had forgotten my username, so here I am with a new name...
Call me Ari I guess.
Basically, I've come to the realization that my dad was emotionally abusive to me and my sister, and occasionally my papa.
My story is long, so I'll condense it a bit.
I am from the US, but I moved to Mexico when I was about 9, I think. And soon after, my parents started to fight in front of us, usually as a result of my actions. I was an attention-seeking kid. Still am frankly. And as a result of that, I acted out a lot, so my dad would easily be able to throw the blame on me.
There's a whole story that branches from that situation, but that's for another time. What ended up happening, is my dads split up and we moved to two different houses. Ever since then, we've been going between the houses, it's been stressful and dramatic and last year I essentially dropped out of school.
I've been (poorly) homeschooling myself using educational sites on my computer, the only thing I've done that helped me accomplish anything, was a drastic shift in attitude and improvement in my art.
I am returning this upcoming school year, but a grade behind, in my little sister's class.
She's highly competitive and has better grades than me. I guess I mainly fear that kids won't include me and that I'll be cast into her shadow.
I wasn't expecting to write this much... but, there's more to tell, so, you'll be hearing from me again soon.
That's the main reason I'm here...
Introduction non-emotional-wise. I'm Ari (Not my real name, though I prefer it To be honest) I'm a messed up teenager who hates drama, fears nearly everything and can't stand fighting. I like to do art and I do love my extended family, I just can't tolerate my dads, step-dads or my sister.
Phew, that seems longer than It probably is...

We break fast, cause we are glass.

I hope I can become friends with you guys, and eventually, get the help I need from whomever is willing to. And maybe eventually tell my parents what's going on too.
