This is a question Family codes and rituals

Freddy Woo writes, "as a child we used to have a 'whoever cuts doesn't choose the slice' rule with cake. It worked brilliantly, but it's left me completely anal about dividing up food - my wife just takes the piss as I ritually compare all the slice sizes."

What codes and rituals does your family have?

Awww, I feelz for ya
I went through some pretty bad shit as a kid, along the same sort of lines.
The one person who was there for me was my nanna, and when I was feeling worthless and horrible (around the age of 12) she said something that will always stick with me, 'out of the worst smelling shit grow the finest roses' and went on to tell me that the best revenge I could get on all those who had contrived to fuck up my life as best they could to that point was to do well, not let the bitterness eat me up and go on to be a better person than they could dream of.

Over the years hearing that has given me the strength to continue dealing with the cunts that made my childhood hell, and I now have a decent job, and a 7 year old daughter that makes me glad to be alive every day.

Good luck you two, and don't let the bastards grind you down. :)

Happy endings FTW
