  • im so grateful to have nice parents who give me what i need, but sometimes it feels like IM not enough. i do everything i can, im an honor student, i do extra curriculars, i do house work, and they always find a way to make it all seem like its worth nothing. as if its all gone to the trash. thank u for a beautiful song kenzie ❤️ i love u endlessly, u make me feel as if everything i do is not trash
  • this song is as beautiful as you are 😻
  • I ate my grandma's ashes because I ran out of pepper😔
  • my biological dad never made me his first priority. ever. he missed out so much on my life and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know anything about me. his mom passed away last year and ever since then he wants to grow a bond with me. as much as I want to I feel like I can’t because it’s to late. it’s awkward and it’s not the same as I was a little girl. he was never there so why be there now.
  • I relate to this song so much because I never really had a close relationship with my dad. As I was growing up I remember him fighting with my grandparents a lot because he’d constantly ask them for money, which they knew he’d spend on drugs. He was in and out of prison a few times as I was growing up too. As I got older I started to resent him because I didn’t like the way he treated my grandparents and because of other things he’s done. He’s tried to connect with me but it’s hard to build a relationship with someone that was supposed to be there for me my whole life and wasn’t. I feel like he just hasn’t consistently been in my life enough to really know me and be there for me when I needed to have a dad.
  • Hi I’m a big fan of Kenzie and dance moms I have recently been diagnosed with scoliosis, I’m 14 and going into freshman year of highschool. I was diagnosed April of 2023 I believe and it’s been really hard for me to find clothes that hide my hip because one is higher than the other and we don’t have enough money to fix me yet, but I have faith! I will not be saying my name just in case my friends find my story and I’m not ready to tell everyone I have scoliosis yet and I’ve only told a few people I love you so much Kenzie !!
  • I got a letter in the mail from him he sent to the courts detailing how much he hated me. My mom let me read it. I don’t know whose worse.
  • Mi papá nos abandonó a mi y a mi mamá cuando yo tenía solo 2 años y mi mamá había recién cumplido 25. Mi mamá lo obligaba a estar presente pero el nunca cumplía y siempre me dejaba abandonada esperando y mirando a la ventana, con las ganas de que llegara a buscarme, nunca llegaba, siempre le importo más su otra familia y hasta el día de hoy no a abandonado el alcohol ni las drogas. Estoy a meses de cumplir 18 y voy a entrar a estudiar medicina. Recién este año intento contactar conmigo. Me da vergüenza decir que soy su hija y ojalá no volviera a hablarme nunca más. Al verlo lo único que me acuerdo es del daño que nos hizo a mi y mi mamá. Los golpes los moretones y el olor a alcohol de mis primeros años de vida. Ojalá que si alguien lee esto sepa que no están solos. Que se puede salir adelante y que todo está en uno. Si tienen un sueño sepan que son capaces de cumplirlo y que siempre llega algo mejor. Sólo esperen y viendo menos lo esperen llegará <3.
  • my dad left when i was little my mom had to go to rehab they were both addicted to drugs. i had to move and live with my aunt while i lived with her she wasn’t abusive but they had their own kids they had so much more than me and my sibling yes we had our rooms but they had their own we have to share sometimes 4 to a room i feel selfish but watching them get to play sports all the time and getting to have so much makes me so envious
  • Never knew my dad, I found his name and add him in Facebook, met him in person twice and we stop sending messages a year after that, I was 18. And this year I just realize he didn’t care about me and had zero interesting on knowing me, I’m his only daughter, he has 3 boys that didn’t even know that I exist, and Ot hurt cause little me always wish for a dad and not any dad, my Dad. But I have my mom and I know I’ll be okay
  • My dads in Jail and i don’t remember much of him before. The only memories that i have with him is over the phone or through a window. I miss him so much but i don’t know what to miss because i don’t know him.
  • Thank you, firstly for this song. Secondly, this literally hits home for me. It has been healing to listen to since it came out. I resonate because of this song. I grew up with a deadbeat "dad" and it has caused me a lot of emotional pain. He's got issues with alcohol, etc. & he basically never wanted to really be mine or my sister's dad since we were born. It still hurts a little, despite coping with it daily. I have to accept the worst reality for the rest of my life, which is having a deadbeat "dad" not being in my life, while still existing, which is very hard to admit. This song is healing for me & I am so grateful for it. Thank you for this song, so that lots of people, like me can find comfort in & resonate with this song.🥹❤️‍🩹
  • So basically I know this is anonymous but I really wanna share my name, it’s Lydia! And I’ve kinda been going through a rough time in my life since I’m only 15😅, umm well I’m just kind feeling myself bc of insecurity and stuff and “I’m not pretty enough” or “I’m not good enough” and it makes me look down on myself. I worship the Lord everyday bc I know he’s watching me and guiding me but I really love your music! Hope you stay well and stay safe
  • my dad had only cared for my other siblings cause they were more interested into sports and stuff while I wasn’t and it made me feel like I
  • what the sigma
  • Hey Kenzie I really love this song so much it reminds me of a lot of things I really needed a song like this
  • My dad follows a constant pattern of leaving his kids first my older sister than me and now he’s had another kid which I assume he’ll l continue his habit with. Everytime he has a new kid he seems to forget the other ones. He broken three families now including what used to be mine. He’s never stayed with the mother of his children. Today marks a year since I’ve seen him and I can only imagine it’ll go on for many more. He last told my aunt (his sister) that he just wants to be an asshole now and he’s tired of caring. So me and my brother are stuck in his demented loop. My sister got visited by him when he traveled to her state, but waited for the last day of his stay to go visit her. He doesn’t care about us and I have to learn not to care about him, but I can’t see my little brother without seeing him. I miss him and he’s my only little sibling. He turned 4 yesterday
  • Just before covid hit I discovered that my dad was an alcoholic. It hit me pretty hard and it was very rough. I never new what would happen that or the next day. If he was a little bit drunk, ok drunk, or over the top drunk. It really scared the crab out of me. And because of that and incidences with my "friends" I started to trust no one anymore. So the line "trust issues, I'm soaking tissues Livingstone to my sister like I never miss you say you'll visit, empty promise god, I wish that for once you'd be honest" hit really hard for me because that litterly was and still is my life. To this day it is still very hard because ever since that day I found out he had been in and out of detox facilities but nothing really worked. Now he started to smoke and smells really bad. His depression is also that bad that he sometimes is really angry and upset with me, my mum and my sister just because we have don't have time for him 24/7 because of school stuff or things around the house.
  • my dad left me due to addiction. he chose heroin over his own family and left me with childhood traumas. i was left with feeling i'm never good enough and i ruined the relationship i had with my first love. i realised this after a few years and proceeded to apologise to him. thank u for this song kenz, it really hits close to home. ❤️
  • this song made me teared up
  • my father left me when i was very young and my mother has never shown me love growing up and ever since then i have never felt worthy of being loved by anyone. growing up without love in my life made me feel worthless and like no one cared about me at all. years later, 2023, my father passed away. i miss him, even when he barely knew about me. the thought, the dream of one day being able to meet him and create this relationship with me to help heal me. i never thought i would have to grow up so fast and become independent so young. i miss him everyday and to this day, still crave the love i deserve. it gets hard, but i am slowly making it by. slowly but surely.
  • I relate to this song and the feelings so much! The grief, maybe linked to some form of unwanted missing, even the nose thing. Thank you for sharing it and expressing your feelings and thoughts while at the same time making others feel understood.🫶🏻✨
  • ik this song is about dads but this brings what i needed about my sister.
  • I understand exactly what your going through even when my dad is present he’s basically no help it makes me sad that I grew up without him it was been so many times we’re he was just dropped me and my brother off in the middle of the street I used to love him but I have realized how much of a manipulative person he is whenever I ask him for something I always get my hopes high and he never does it it always hurt my feelings but of course he didn’t care the only person he cares about is himself he never listens to anybody and he never thinks about how other people feel especially his own children I understand.
  • my dad has a lot of issues that as a child i had to witness. he abused my step mother and i had to watch as she turned into someone she wasn’t. i was emotionally manipulated into loving him and believing he was the best thing for me. my mum wanted me to stop seeing them but she never had it in her to take my dad away from me. last year, there was an incident that has really impacted my life, and i cut him off. i’m 16, and constantly afraid he will come to my house. afraid my family hate me. and upset i don’t have my father. despite the awful person he is, i miss him so much but it is so much better for me to not be around him. this song is amazing kenz and i know my story doesn’t entirely resonate with the meaning but this a safe space <3
  • Don’t get me wrong my dad still reaches out to me, and maybe still cares about me. But it’s hard when he’s not here. I see everyone around me having an amazing relationship with their father, and it just makes me feel left out. He cheated and he doesn’t pay child support. But for some reason I still care about him. I don’t want anything bad to happen to him and it just confuses me why I feel that way. It’s also hard since my mom has this big forever grudge on my dad and always compares my siblings and I to him whenever we do something that upsets her. It’s like I am in the middle of things and it’s hard to get used to. Thank you Kenz for making this song, it really brings out the words I cannot say. I love you ❤️
  • i always lived with my mum growing up. not knowing much about my dad however because of the way things was at her house i moved to my dads in high school. i spoke up about my mum’s boyfriend sexually assaulted me and my mum never gave me any help when speaking out i got diagnosed with ptsd, anxiety and i’m getting an autism assessment soon. she never really spoke to me after that. after many suicidal attempts, hospital visits i finally got myself in a better place with my dad by my side and my mum just watching from the sidelines. She never knew me at all. all at the age of 13. Thanks for reading my story
  • I cried my eyes out to this song because I see myself. I hear myself. I was adopted by my aunt and grew up with my abusive cousins, after my mother passed. They never told me I was adopted, so I spent my whole entire life living as somebody, I truly wasn't. It was all a lie. I was heartbroken and still am heartbroken and I don't know what hurts more, being denied the right to know what happened between my birth parents or the fact that I found my birth Dad and he actually knows of me, but never made the effort to reach out to me. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, made up so many excuses but, I guess I was wrong. So now I'm left to my own devices and now it's my duty to figure out who I really am. Without him. Thank you sharing your story, Kenzie 💗
  • thank you for this song. i felt every word, i resonate so deeply with this yet i never found the right words to depict how i felt. thank you and i’m sorry you had to endure this pain as well <3
  • my mom walked out on me and my sister and my dad took us in. then when she came back a few years later he left. now i only know the new version of my mom and im trying to grasp onto what i have left of my dad.

  • I relate to this song so much, thank you for sharing it with the world! My parents got divorced when I was 4, my dad moved out and I went over to his apartment sometimes for a few years. I don’t have many memories of him but I felt like I had a lot in common with him: math and sports and loved playing catch. The visits became less frequent. When I was 7 we went on a road trip to Disney world with him, I was violently Ill which I will never forget because I had pneumonia and was so grumpy and sick. It makes me so upset that it was one of the last times I saw him since they weren’t good memories. He left when I was 8, no explanation, his mom came over my moms house to tell us he isn’t coming back. His family never explained why. I never heard from him after that. He stopped paying child support. When I was 20, I stumbled on his current address accidentally& tracked him down to confront him but I’m not confrontational. Got no closure, he didn’t want a relationship, I am 30 now & it hurts.
  • This song is so good Ik she worked really hard on her songs this is my favorite song ever keep up tho good work WERE SO PROUD OF YOU KENZIE LOVE YOU💗
  • first i want to send all my love to you and i wish you well on your journey to healing. it’s been so hard having an emotionally and physically distant dad especially when there’s no one to relate. my family is very broken and we all live very different lives, i also have an older sister but i honestly feel like an only child and that i only have my mom. she’s been both mom and dad for me and she has made a lot of mistakes and has hurt me but she has also held me as a teenager while i bawled my eyes out wondering why my dad couldn’t love me like normal dads love their daughters. we deserve that love, and it’s hard to accept that they’ll never change. my relationship with my dad is only improving because i’m taking control and all i’ve wanted since i was younger was for him to make the effort. it’s hard but the inner child in me wants to believe he will. none of that responsibility should be on us but it will always feel like a weight only we have to bear.
  • Had a close relationship with my dad when I was younger but after my parents separated he went ghost would say he would see us but make excuses I always had my hopes up I just wanted to see my dad it felt like I didn’t matter to him he didn’t care about me it would hurt me after a while I never got ready when he said he would see us I lost hope he lied and lied never owned up now he’s a stranger to me I don’t know him to me he’s just a man but not my dad to me I don’t understand why he did this but it hurts me I haven’t had contact with him for three years I hate that I still care about him but he hurt me and my sister so much I say I don’t miss him but I do and it rips me apart. He said so many promises but never kept them. I love this song and I relate to it so much it describes what I feel and what i have gone through. Thank You for this song I don’t feel alone :)
  • i started listening to kenzie starting from teamwork and i found her music really relatable. thank you so so much for another song i can relate to, i love you so much!!
  • my sister SAd me and i wish i didn’t tell anyone
  • i lost one of my best friends to cancer last year, and i’m still processing his passing to this day. i’ll probably never heal fully, but this song is a great comfort. the lyrics are incredible.
  • I feel like my boyfriend of almost a year lost feeling but is just with me because grew nice and then theirs time where were really good and evening is fine and then theirs just some off days and I feel crazy like maybe I’m just in my head but what if I’m not I just hope this is just a weird rough patch
  • I have an horrible friend. She absolutely destroyed me and she’s the worst. She manipulates me And i am actually really scared of her. She flirts with my crush all the time and when i read they’re Chat I started crying because of how terrible it was. I hope she will stop our friendship because I cannot so I hope that she will. Love you Kenzie 🩷
  • my parents divorced when i was three and so i never really knew what it was like to have a father in the home. right after the divorce, i would still get to see my dad every couple weeks but as i got older it became every couple months and recently its been every couple years. i spent so much of my childhood wondering why he stopped coming to visit, why he didn’t miss me, why i wasn’t good enough. i turned eighteen two weeks ago and somehow becoming a young adult has made come realize how much my fathers absence impacted my childhood. thanks so much for this song kenzie, it puts words to emotions ive been trying to describe my whole life💕
  • I HAVE BEEN LOVING THIS SONG SO MUCH AS ITS SO RELATABLE FOR ME AND ALSO MEANS SO MUCH TO ME I DO ALSO CRY TO THIS EVERY WEEK BUT IM BEGGING YOU TO RELEASE THIS IN A CD FORM BECAUSE I WOULD BUY EVERY COPY <3
  • He called my mom on a Saturday night Wanting to speak to me To meet your family that I don’t even know Faked a smile like everything is alright Don’t know why now? Hi DAD! if that’s what I should call you You pop up here and there Once in awhile Just to meet up with me and mom When you feel like it I ask myself why now? All this time has passed I see you try Like when mom invited you To my prom pictures and graduation Bring me flowers to make me smile Holding me as if we have this close bond Faked a smile like everything is alright Mom asked me how I felt about you I said Idk You show up to see me but I have no loving feelings towards you I see you try but that’s not enough Delvon dad has always been a great dad to me He gets the dad title for treating me as his own daughter You get Mr.Man because I don’t have that feeling of calling you dad You call and say we should hang out when you get back as if we are so close You haven’t called me back since As if I don’t exist
  • Haven’t cried to a song in so long but Kenzie has had my heart since dance moms season one and this song had me balling my eyes out I literally love this song and i have a great relationship with my father so idk what it was that touched my heart, really proud of Kenzie since day one love you so so so much and always remember to chase your dreams and never give up🤍🤍🤍🤍
  • my parents got a divorce when i was 5. it wasn’t too hard to not see my dad as often bc he was always traveling when i was growing up. after the divorce my younger brother and i would go and visit him a couple weekends a month. after a while i started to realize that my dad has an alcohol problem. it would get to the point where i’m scared he’s about to physically hurt me. so many nights i would be cooking dinner or cleaning the apartment when i’m only 10 because he is passed out from drinking so much. i even remember on some holidays i would have to lock my brother and i in a room so he wouldn’t hurt us because he was so drunk. eventually when i was 16 he drove drunk with me and my brother in the car. when we called him later that night to tell him we wouldn’t go and see him til he got help he refused and i didn’t see him for probably a year. he still won’t admit to the problem he has and continues to pretend like he didn’t make me grow up into an adult at the age of 10.
  • my dad growing up was in my life. he was emotionally not there though, he would drink constantly and when he was drunk he would be going on and on about how he loves us. a part of me loved when my dad was drunk talking cus that's the only time i heard him say he loves me. he was very abusive to my brothers and would constantly be yelling. i never heard his actual tone when talking normally til i was about 15. im now 19 and after my parents having more and more kids together (that i had to raise) he ended up having a heart attack and was told to stop drinking. ever since my heart wanted to forgive him, i guess that's my inner child talking. i now have my own baby and he's very loving to her. it heals my inner child but yet again scares me for my own daughter. ive only spent 2 christmas' with him since he decided to go to mexico every year during it for his other family he created there as he was creating the one we have. anyways, it's still complicated.
  • This isn’t about my dad but I realised after listening to this multiple times that this was how my grandma treated me. She’d make so many empty promises to my brother and parents and she begged my mother to have children yet was only in our lives a lot when we were younger now that we’re teenagers we never see her. She skips our birthdays now and she cares more about her partners grandkids and family than mine and I have to tell everybody that I’m fine with it because she’s family but now I realise what she’s doing is wrong. Thank you so much kenzie I honestly feel a weight being lifted off my shoulders and I feel happier Ik this doesn’t compare to a lot of ur stories but it’s still a lot and there’s so much more I can’t write.
  • It’s difficult growing up without a parent. I felt this song way too hard. This was beautiful, Kenzie! Thank you for being vulnerable. You’re so talented💗💗
  • My dad has always been an alcoholic. When I was younger he would always get so mad about everything and that would make me and my brother never want to go to his house. As we got older he started to become a better person, but not a better dad. He is very immature. He always tries to guilt trip me for not wanting to go over to his house or not calling him when I work, play sports, and go to school. He acts like everything is my fault even though I am a child and he is an adult. Every time I come home from his house I feel emotionally drained. I’m so sick of always having to be the mature one, the one who plans everything because he doesn’t know how, the one who calls him when he never does. I’m also sick of everything always being my fault with him. I will always love my dad, but I don’t think I like him as a person. I know that sounds awful, but it’s the truth.
  • Thank you for giving us this present Kenzie, is literally a work of art, I'm so proud of you, you were my inspiration since baby and you will always be that inspiration for me, love you so much 😘
  • I truly hate him. My parents divorced 5 years ago and yet he still cause us troubles, just for fun. He doesn't have a relationship with us daughters (3) and still pretends to dictate the rules of the world. It would be better if he just walks away forever. No one is going to miss him cause he never was a nice person. I no longer want to have him in our lives.
  • My dad made me feel felt out . He care more about education than how I was as a person . He was once drunk and sexually assaulted me . Till this day I never told anyone and im scared to be in a room alone with him
  • Hi kenzie how do you feel about this btw this is really sad
  • would do anything in the entire world to just have a dad…

  • I can relate to this. My fam doesn’t want anything to do with me but she acts like does. And my dad almost died in a car crash which made me paranoid of EVERYTHING. Ilysm and I love your song sooo sooo much!.
  • my mom and i’s relationship was never healthy and i finally cut all ties with her this past fall. this song means the world to me and more. i’ve never had the ability to relate to a song the way i am with anatomy now and i’m so grateful for this. so proud of you kenz.
  • 3 years ago my mom took me and my siblings and separated from my dad because he was abusive. he's trying to rebuild a relationship with me but I really don't know if it's because he genuinely cares and loves me or if it's out of spite because of my mom. my brothers, sisters, and I have limited contact with him (visits, texts, etc.). we have some weeks where everything seems fine and I think I might be able to have a relationship with him and others where even the thought of having a relationship with him seems impossible. I've put up with so much from him the past 3 years and I genuinely don't know how much more I can take
  • My dad left me when I was little and always used to vist him during holidays but now I never do and no one really gets it or understands it. I have lost so many tears to him and I fell like I missing something. People tell me to get over myself but they don't get it. But only some people do and have been were I've been. I always wonder what it would be like having a dad and just wanna know

  • My dad used to abuse my mom in front me until we moved different places. He loves my siblings more than me and never calls for birthdays or holidays. Growing up I’ve realized my mom manipulated me my entire childhood and now. She’s currently out of the state for her boyfriend of 4 months and is getting married to him. She’s thinking of leaving me and brother here and she stays. If only can have a parent that cares. yk?
  • This whole song hits close to me cause I was adopted and everyone always asked about my “real parents” cause anatomy *giant eye roll*
  • I’m from MN. I relate to this song so deeply. I was 12 when my dad left my mom and two sisters. I really connect with this song because I have been feeling the same way. I struggle with trying to not be like my dad. Any part of me that is like him makes me feel disgusted. I haven’t spoken to him in years, and he hasn’t tried speaking to me. I wish that he missed me, and I wish that I could’ve been good enough for him to want me, to love me. Thank you for making this song, Kenzie. It describes everything I’ve been feeling and I feel so relieved that someone else feels this way and that I’m not alone in this.
  • my dad cheated on my mom and left me and my siblings to go be an “actor” in LA. He would constantly talk about how he’ll move back, come visit, and after 14 or so years we’ve learned that he will never grow up and change. I hope he had fun using LA to boost his ego without actually doing the work and having missed all of his kids growing up.
  • this song was so special to listen to because my dad recently just left so i related to everything that was said
  • it’s always only been me & my mom. my dad chose drugs and crime over me.
  • i love this song! it’s very healing and helps me to accept reality better. i recently dropped all contact with a stepparent who i had been very close to for most of my life, due to choices they made that completely blindsided me. this song helps me realize that it’s okay to not have people in your life anymore, even if their impact on the person you are feels huge.
  • Hi Kenzie, thanks for sharing this space to vent. lately my life is literally a roller coaster of emotions, I want to finish my college but I can't afford it, I asked my dad for help years ago, and he always disappoints me and that was constant. I feel lost, I just wish he was present. But, not with gifts, money or material goods, but as a present father, do you understand me?
  • My parents divorced when I was really young. My dad was never the father I needed him to be, yet he was there for my brother all the time. I didn’t understand why I was so different. I just accepted it for what it was. And now, he’s trying to be in my life again. But I’ve built my walls up too high to let him in, but there is always a part of me that wonders if he will actually be the person I need him to be if I let him in
  • i grew up with my father but as soon as i hit double didgets i meant nothing to him, this song healed a part of me that i didnt think could be healed. so thankyou kenz. i love you.
  • even though my parents got divorced when i was just a couple months old, my dad was always in my life. he was there cheering me on at dance competitions, watching tv with me late at night, putting me to sleep, giving me whatever i wanted, i was his precious baby girl. it was when i was 13 years old that i finally discovered his true colors and cut him out of my life for good. not a day goes by where i don’t think about it. does it ever get any easier?
  • My dad left, and disowned me at the age of 4. My adoptive dad made sure to be the best father he could ever be. I could never understand all those feelings about how he left. He (and my adoptive dad by only a week of a difference) passed away, but with reconnecting with that family, they said he missed me, but never fully looked for me. This song Kenzie, helps me put all those feelings to words, to words I can’t tell him, but will always wish I could. While I don’t know what to do with my biological family, thank you Kenzie, for not making me feel alone, in a world where I felt I couldn’t relate to anyone. 🤍
  • My dad left my mom and sisters just few months before I was born and then refused to believe that I was his child. Now 20 years later he wants to get to know me and my sisters but I can't forgive the things he has done.
  • My story with a happy end. It's started from my childhood. My dad was happy with alcohol and he came to home just for sleeping, eating and fighting with my mom. I still remember this horrible time when I tried to doesn't let my father to hurt her again. When I was little I asked to myself "why day is always perfect and the night it's the worst". I saw the violence every night. I came to school with tears on my eyes. I was 8 years old. A few years passed, and in 2015 ( when I was 14 teen) my dad came to home and he said that now he starts a new life. He started to read Bible and he stopped drink. When I was teenager he took my phone for a months. He tried to control people which I talked to, to my Instagram account my private life, my books which I read, songs which I listened... I was the worst for him... Everything he waited for it's for reading Bible with me. Also he didn't like me clothes, he didn't let me to wear that I want. I moved in France, I don't see him. I forgive him...
  • My parents got divorced when I was a baby. He cheated on my mom with my now step mom. I have grown up with him in my life but it has almost felt like he hasn’t been in it. I have always resented him for the burden he has put on my life. I have no emotional connection to him and it feels like a forced relationship. He has been the one to say “the phone goes both ways” to me now and as a child and has always tried to buy my happiness. As a child and even now, I have no desire to have more than a surface level relationship with him. I much rather keep my feelings to myself then be vulnerable with a narcissist that put blame for the lack of a relationship with his child. When I first heard the clip Kenzie posted on tiktok a few months ago, I knew this song would perfectly describe how I feel. Thank you for being vulnerable and allowing so many to find their voice within this song. 🫶🏼
  • my parents aren't divorced, but they might as well be. they aren't abusive, but they've hurt me in ways that i don't know if i'll ever heal from. sometimes i wish they weren't my parents. sometimes i wonder if i'd be better off without parents at all. i really do hate that they're half of me. thank you kenzie for this song. i've cried myself to sleep listening to anatomy too many times to count 💔
  • this song
  • A few weeks before my 11th birthday me and my sister came out to our mum that our fathers stepson tried to do things to my sister. Our mother was appalled that our father let this happen and when he was told he told us that we were lying for attention. He chose the side of this monster that he had known for only a few months over his blood. It has been 5 years since this and he only started talking to me again because he got divorced . I don’t think that I will ever be able to forgive him for what he did and I don’t think that he is sorry because he hardly makes any effort to talk and I only hear from him once every 4-5 months saying “hey what’s up?” Every time I see these messages it brings back the horrible memories of the person that I was supposed to be able to trust betray me so bad.
  • This song hit like no other. My relationship with my father hasn’t always been the best but ever since I moved out it got worse and I haven’t spoken to him in over a year. I’ve tried to make the relationship better but I can’t do it all myself. He didn’t call me for my bday and just so many things that hurt me so I chose to heal on my own and even though I was so hurt by everything he’s done I had to forgive him for me. Thank you for bringing this song to us. I love you <33
  • this song hit me in the mom issues kinda way. luckily my dad is supportive, and since my mother has been on meds shes been better, but its so tough to heal my inner child from the scars shes left. i feel so guilty thinking of her in a bad way because of how far shes come, but it still hurts to remember my childhood. im in therapy for the abusive trauma now, and i do feel like im slowly progressing, but man does this song still hit. for me, its not exactly that she doesnt miss me, but its how she doesnt even ACKNOWLEDGE the damage shes done to my siblings and i. its like, im trying to heal from it, why arent you? why dont you care as much as i do about how you treated me? do you think ive just brushed it off? anyway, kenzie, i love your music. its so beautiful every time. never stop.
  • Congrats Kenzie! Love you keep working hard! You’re an inspiration and I love to see you sing and dance ☀️🫶🏼
  • late to tell my story but im here now. my parents were high school sweethearts & don’t really care about anyone but each other. their involvement with me would swing violently & rapidly between overbearingly involved to me essentially raising myself & my sister on my own. when came to anything outside the house, they were suffocating. i was not allowed to have a friend unless they approved. but when we were at home, it was like i didn’t even have parents. i did all the cooking & the cleaning. i was “given the gift” essentially raising of my sister. they were only there to inspect and berate. when i was able to start working at 15, i had to start paying for everything for myself & sometimes for them too. when i would stand up for myself, they would always say “why are you acting like this? we didn’t raise you like this. this isn’t you.” I’m acting like this because of you. you didn’t raise me, i raised myself. you can’t say this isn’t me, you dont even know me.
  • kenz this song is so beautiful and i’m so proud of you and all of your accomplishments! i inspire to be like you one day ❤️
  • every word of this song hits home for me. my father was terrible to my mother and wasn’t ever there for me. it was always my mom and i against the world. i was relieved when my parents divorced and we could leave. i still come to his home but he’s never taken the time to get to know me. his only child. he’s a narcissist and only cares about himself and whay benefits him it’s heartbreaking to see him go run off with his new girlfriend who has never treated me kindly because it’s “in my head” that she doesn’t like me and i never make time for her when she blatantly ignores me. thank you Kenzie for anatomy it’s a song i didn’t know how much i needed
  • dont go.
  • I love so much Kenzie I’m so proud of you 🫶🫶🫶you’re doing great <3
  • I’m depressed I think
  • Idk if this really relates but, 2 of my very bestfriends like the same boy that i like. I have liked this kid since 2nd grade and they both knew. I don’t wanna ruin our friendship just because of a guy but I like him so much. I have a really good friendship with him so I’m scared to confess bc it might ruin things and make stuff awkward. I’ll also be seen as a jerk by my whole friend group if I ever do confess bc the other 2 girls like him. Cons of being in a small school ig.
  • I'm 25 and my mother is a narcissist, she's always been present in my life but we are the total opposites. Not alike in any sense. No relationship. Never did she ever want to empathize or understand anything in life, no connection, no growth. I'm ashamed to be half of her, part of her, related to her. We're so far apart from each other in every aspect except physically. We talk every day but we are strangers. I long for that connection. She may be my mother, I may be ashamed of it. She doesn't know me, she never did, never will. She isn't a safe space and this melody brings the emotion out no matter how different our stories may be. Well done Kenzie & thank you.
  • my dad only gets in contact when it suits him. i hate that he feels he can come in and out of my life as he pleases. i used to want him to make more of an effort but now i just wish he’d just stay gone. he doesn’t know me and he doesn’t deserve to know me.
  • When I was growing up my dad was always absent, he would call to make plans. I would wait all day for him just to never show up. Without a call or text. When I was younger I just wanted to feel loved I couldn’t understand what was wrong with me. Why my dad didn’t care about me
  • kenzie, your song anatomy means so much to me, me and my brother grew up mostly without our dad in our lifes because our parents were always fighting and then reuniting. my father is an alcoholic. we grew up poor because our father always left us with no money but my mom always found a solution and tried her best and is still doing it. honestly i am jealous of my brother. he is a troublemaker and even when it's not the good spotlight it always affects me. the way that my parents always talk about him affects me, he is mentioned in my talks with mom. i live with my grandma because my mom flew to Switzerland to work and my brother is after a horrible accident but he's living with my dad at the moment. i know that they want the best for us and they care but i feel like i am just an outcast for them. my father cares a little bit about me but not that much as any other father of my friends. i mean at least he cares. i am currently 14 years old and i suffer from depression and social phobia.
  • I remember being 5 years old and waking up to the sound of my parents screaming at each other. My dad was waving a gun around and he told my mom to shoot him so he’d be out of her life for good. That’s all she ever wanted. That’s all any of us ever wanted. But of course she didn’t. He’s still in my life to this day and I just wish they would’ve gotten divorced. My life is miserable with him in it, but he just never leaves. So I’m leaving. I’m going off to college to finally get away from him. I feel bad leaving my siblings, but I can’t stand my father. I wish he could leave my life entirely. He’s the reason I have trust issues. Some days he’ll treat me like his “little princess” but most days he’ll hit me, talk over me, and pretend I don’t exists. He doesn’t treat anyone in my family right, and I really wish he’d leave.
  • I’m posting this so late but wanted to share. My biological dad was an abusive alcoholic who was horrible to me and my mum, after one awful night in particular where my mum went to the hospital due to her injuries she was finally let free after police were called and my mum and me were safely living with another family member. Due to his behaviour he landed himself in jail a few times for drunk related incidents and it wasn’t until I was 5 that he began trying to gain some custody of me. He didn’t actually want a relationship though, you could tell. Every court visit, psychological appointment, etc you could tell he just wanted the power over my mum. My mum won custody as his alcohol addiction got severely worse. in 2014 my biological dad passed away in our local hospice due his alcoholism at 31 years old, I was 9. Whilst i was so young that moment took a massive toll on me and it wasn’t until recently I began to not feel guilty and heal.
  • My dad cheated on my mum earlier this year and it has been so so hard got me to try to see him as the person he once was. This song has really helped me to realise I am not alone in all of this so thank you Kenzie x
  • I really can relate to this song so much, all the things you said were just so accurate to hear, it’s honestly such a beautiful song.
  • I wouldn’t say I grew up in a healthy house. My father was abusive, he mistreated my mom and most of my childhood was fear. But after my parents split & my dad grew up too, things were suddenly changed into something so much more healthier. Even though this is everything I want now, the damage has been done because he destroyed every evidence of my childhood. No pictures no nothing. He never wanted a daughter so he made sure of it. I can’t help but wonder sometimes if he loves me for me or because I suddenly made a name for myself.
  • my mom left when I was 12. she tried to kill herself first but it didn’t work and instead she voluntary gave custody to my dad. there’s so much that seems normal when you’re growing up until you’re older and look back on it. I hate that she’s half of me all the time, and worry that I’ll become her eventually. But I choose to end the cycle of family hardship by investing in myself, therapy, choosing new family and friends, and living a life free of the guilt and sadness of not having a mom. Sometimes life can be beautiful and sad at the same time, and it’s taken a long time for me to come to terms with that. Ultimately it’s her loss and I will forever be a better and stronger person because of her. Doesn’t mean it still sucks sometimes
  • My boyfriend cheated on me and used to abuse me a lot and I was pregnant when he left me, I had to raise a kid on my own this song is so special and very relatable for my situation
  • You did nothing wrong!!! Your dads issues are with himself and his selfish ways! You were only a child!!! His job was to love you and nurture you and BE THERE FOR YOU!!!!!
