A family might have lots of issues – fighting or just not getting along. Some would call it dysfunctional but that, to many, is ‘normal’. Who can define what a dysfunctional family is if you can’t define what normal is?

this dog is dysfunctional like my life andmy family and all the female influences I’ve ever had. I don’t know how to keep a real functional relationship because all the men I’ve ever been around are horrible no good lazy assholes who fuck around and drink too much. It makes for a teenage life of hell

We’re dysfunctional. We know that. It’s hard not to know it, when you’re as messed up as we are. Dad’s always gone and mum’s always getting drunk. My brother practically raised me. Now that I’m old enough to care for myself he’s always out with friends too. I’m raising myself, and i’m only 14. Thats dysfunctional, for sure.

Who is to say what’s dysfunctional? If i have a car that’s been sitting in my driveway because it doesn’t run, that’s non-functioning. But as to applying this similar word to families — I don’t think so. There are grades and gradations and levels and everyone is different. Everyone. Is different.

My family is dysfunctional. We don’t talk, and when those rare occasions we do, we fight about anything and everything. My sister is dysfunctional, she is never happy

who i am does not matter
my family is it’s definition
my life is the definition

A family. The first thing that one can imagine as dysfunctional is a family.
How dysfunctional must this world be, that the first thing one can imagine as non-functioning is a family.
What about an old machine part?
Perhaps it’s because it’s what matters most . . . that’s why we care if it functions.

He had the bark and I had the bite
He was the storm that tore through my night
It ripped me apart but I relished the pain
Because he showed me light while bringing the rain.

There’s something wrong with you. You can’t do anything right. Doesn’t work well. Relationships. Families. DAnger.

families are dysfunctional. there seems to be nothing worse than being born and raised in one. dysfunctional families however do manage to make for great television or superb literature.

It had never occurred to me to check in their room. I thought we were the perfect family. Why would Nat need a gun? Why would she be the one to shoot the theater? Why?

She couldn’t take it, clawing at her hair, the tears of frustration streaking down her face, she could practically feel herself caving in as she watched him turn away, the confusion at her unspoken cries too draining.

A society craves for naught. Anything more is less; feed the people, kill the people.
Sheep. Electric or otherwise.
A society is blemished, tarred and crisped on the heels of men.
Future has never been more like this.

dysfunctional. a word that can pertain to a lot of things: relationships, academics, and what not; but it is truly only one. It is something that troubles, a concept that bothers. It is purely chaos

He was standing alone by the stairs. This could be it. This could be the end. All was perfect. Now all was gone. It was his fault. Nor his family. Well not entirely. It was their blame to take. He is part of it. He is part of a dysfunctional family. And he loves it.

μικρη λυπημενη μου θαλασσα
χωρις στερια και αλμυρα
θυμαμε πως καποτε ανταλλαξα
ενα κοσμο να σε εχω για μοιρα
θα περασουν τα συννεφα
διπλα μου προχωρα χωρα αθανατη
των μεγαλων οι θανατοι
μοιρα δοξασμενοι μοιρα αιωνια χαραγμενη

The whole thing seemed dysfunctional. From the red tape and authorizations, the tests, the letter from your husband authorizing that it was “OK” to have a driver’s license.

my family is completely dysfunctional nobody gets along unless they are forced to but then again what family does ? does yours?

My brain is a vice and it pressures me to the point of breaking, my mind is fractured, splintered, and through the fractals I see, with clarity, what insanity has wrought of me. I need to calm down.

This mechanical being has seen many things that man would shun. It has witnessed the end of a star along with the passage to an alternate dimension. It withers away–alone in a building.Travelers come by to hear its stories. They do not believe them and call the being “Dysfunctional. Crazy.”. However, this being is but a few that that went beyond the road that many were afraid to take.

I’m dysfunctional in a normal way. Just like you.

They were something of a dysfunctional family, if one really thought about it. On the outside, they looked simple and sweet: a pair of working parents, two twins, a younger brother, and a younger sister. But as Mark noticed, he and his twin sister were reincarnations of past kings. His brother was the sex-god of the school – which was probably due to the deal he had made with the dead that his first-born child would die instead of himself. Little Sidney was really the only normal one. He prayed that it wouldn’t change.

I don’t mind being dysfunctional. Actually, what I like about it is the surprise in your eyes, the surprise in other eyes – sometimes there is disapproval, sometimes I earn a smile and I feel I made my day…

I’m thinking I’m not the one, but you are dysfunctional. I liked the idea to write on one word and wanted more, but there you are again… dysfunctional, eh ? You tell me.
I constantly lose focus even when i concentrate with all my might. the day starts fading into night and then BANG i’m at it again and so is everyone else, it’s all i can focus on i realise. But i hate every second of this. We all do I don’t even know why i continue, but something tells me I must.

Most relationships these days, or does it seem so through the lens of my own? Just as pregnant women suddenly see pregnant women everywhere, so too do the little strains or the giant problems become more visible in couples everywhere when your own dealings are strained. And in a mirror image, the happiness of others is magnified and shines back on you with the bright light of envy.

Have you ever met anyone like her? i really thought I had seen them all – but Elsie sure took the cake. A more dysfunctional human being had never set foot across my office door. And I rued the day I ever approached her across the parkway.

Dysfunctional. That brings up so many memories of home. I can’t understand why broken homes happen; but they really do put a toll on the family. Maybe because everyone wants a perfect life? Of course they do. Who wouldn’t? I mean, I do. But isn’t it awful how some grow up not caring either way.

Crazy. Insane. Life.
We are all on a path that wanders and zig-zags, it goes in a circle and there is no way out. We try to work like well oiled machines, but problems always arise. Perfect plans in theory never work as well in real life.

When a person or object fails to complete or endure a given task or goal, fails to live up to expectations.
