All my life my parents have said things that have hurt me. Mostly it's my dad, little brother, and younger sister, but my mom says things occasionaly too. I expect to be picked on by my younger siblings, but it hurts me when people in my family call me fat (which I am not), ugly, stupid, dumb, ect. I have tried telling them multiple time how much this HURTS me, but they always seem to laugh it off and lay off on the name calling for a bit, then start right back up. I already have a low self esteem and their words cause me to sink even lower every time. I've gotten very physical with my little brother and sister, and it makes me feel bad for being so mean to them. How can I get my parents to listen to me and understand how much their words hurt me?
