Preferably for reasons that don't involve sexual orientation. Just that you've never been able to see eye to eye with your parents. You dislike one of you parents or vice versa. Lack of trust, bond, respect etc. I come from a single parent home.My parents are divorced but Im resigned to the fact that my mother and I will never even have a decent relationship. It'll just be bad at best. Overbearing, a control freak, untrustworthy, lacks emotion. Can't tell her anything without fear of retaliation (I did go off her once which led to me being kicked out of her house for 6 months and us not speaking for that time). At two separate points since I turned 18 have we not talked up periods of 6 months or longer. And I would be gone already if I felt I was capable of sufficiently supporting myself which I'm in reality far from it. I have a better relationship with my Dad but still my own personal issues and my relationship with my Mom have hampered that relationship. To the point where I really am avoidant of anybody who represents authority in some capacity. I just really can't tell her anything important with my life, my basic needs and wants, and things threat are happening with me. And I'm at the point where I realize just doing that is going to make it worse. So I just isolate myself when home. A habit that carries over into a lot of other aspects of life. I don't blame my mom really for things that I go through be because its really not her fault and circumstance (I suffer from a developmental/social disorder and severe depression [if you haven't noticed vets of this forum]). My life is hard enough with the inordinate amount of personal and emotional stress I put on myself but the support has never been there and it's like being here its like a constant state where I'm drowning in a constant state of negativity.
