What can I do in this family hating situation?

I’m 15 and I wish my family would vanish, I’ve had at least 50 fantasies in which they are all killed. It’s kindof like in the book “Vernon God Little” (a must read) except I would rather my family died. I really really hate them but I cannot run away or anything stupid like that, so what can I do?

Answer #1

That all depends on exactly why you hate your family…and that is for you to understand and nobody else. One thing your do have to realize is that no matter how much it sucks and how much you think you hate them now, things do get better. Just wait until you move out! Your probably thinking that you cant wait huh? well its not all fun and games and one day you are going to wish that your had your family to provide for you again. and another thing…we all go through what we perceive as a horrible time but trust me…when you dont have to see them everyday…its much easier to get along with them. I know its hard but just honestly try to think about things from their perspective. even if its hard to understand. Friends really do come and go and no matter how much you may not get along with your family, they are always there and will never disappear.

Answer #2

if you hate them that much (for what ever reason) I think you should just stay as far away from them as possible. join a club or go somewhere other than home

Answer #3


Grow up. You never know what you have until its gone. Just because things dont go your way , that doesnt mean you have to wish death upon your family, the people who provide for you.

If your going thru any physical or mental abuse contact a school teacher and let them know whats going on.

Answer #4

why do you hate them? have they done anything to you? made you feel alienated, abused you, neglected you?

if not, then I suggest you ind reasons why you love your family. they put a roof over your head, feed you, clothe you. they must care about you.

maybe you should get counseling. your fantasies of your family dying could be a result of a fear or anxiety, and your brain is just processing fear as something awful- your family dying.

get help, even just from school. its confidential and could really help you.
