Anxiety and Depression Support

unsupportive Family

My Family are really not at all supportive in any aspect of my life :( & seem to resent anything I have or do for myself! Which isn"t much! All they do is put me down & never say well done or I"m proud of you when I do some thing good! Nothing I seem to do is ever good enough for them! My sisters who are very selfish seem to get all the praise! & are nasty to me all the time! But say anything & i am the one in the wrong! It really gets me down :(

Sounds like a different environment may do some good. Familiarity brings contempt. Your family may need to miss you in order to appreciate you. My little sister was always putting me down and spreading rumors about me when I was in college. It took years for me to realize and accept that she was jealous. I moved away from my family and she began to miss me. Now she speaks very highly of me. Don’t let them get you down.

Sorry just make more friends that are supportive... You can pick them..so pick good ones and let the whiners go..maybe your sisters will.grow out of the sibling rivalry... Take pride in yourself and the good choices you make write in a journal get those thoughts and feelings out..

I know how you feel and to be honest it sucks. I’m learning how to cope with it as well. My mom is one of my biggest triggers of my anxiety and she treats my little brother like he’s everything and I’m left to feel the same way you do, sad. Sometimes what helps me is to do something I enjoy doing and trying to forget about it for a little while or talk to someone about it like a close friend or significant other.

Hi Abby! Don`t blame them, may be they don`t understand, and probably they are supportive, but not the why you would like them to be. It is paradoxically, I believe that sometimes the strong people around us need more help than us. I am experiencing a depression and I joined the group, because I feel alone, although I have a family. Anyone who need to speak with somebody can send me a messagе :)

My mum & brother are the only ones who are :) But as for my sisters they don"t give a dam about me! They are a really nasty pair! All they ever do is put me down! & make me feel rubbish about myself! They are nothing but a pair of bullies :( I hate myself for feeling like that about them! but it"s true! I have spent my whole life trying to be what they want me to be, well not anymore! Time after time they have hurt me & let me down :( & they have never been there for me! & I have always tried to be there for them! if they wern"t my sisters they would not be in my life! but I can"t do that as I do feel a strange kind of loyalty towards them!
