I feel like giving up soon


My mom evens seems better without me in her sight, and my sister is always disgusted with everything I have to say and my dad ignores me, he only cares what I have to say unless it involves my work, school or money. Nobody in this family cares about how I feel or bothers to make me feel better. They just ignore me and look at me with mad eyes. I get jealous whenever my friends parents hug them or talk to them or give them advice or reassures them with love because none of my parents ever done that to me.

I'm sorry for this, apulla14. Everyone needs love and support. I saw you seem to have a caring boyfriend. Do you have anyone else around you supporting you? I'm glad you're posting here!

Hi - being ignored is a bitter pill to swallow. However, if you are sure you are not giving offense, then another way to look at this situation is that it is their loss not to be engaging with you.

Build up your independence and try and just be comfortable with yourself. Real friends will soon be on the way.

Smart of you to reach out and post here, apulla14. It's hard to believe in ourselves when those around us do not seem to care or understand. Take care of yourself (physically, emotionally, etc) the best you can and reach out for support. It gets better!

Hi apulla14,

I’m sorry you feel this way & that those you should feel love & trust from aren’t able to communicate that to you.

I know it feels like it is but the rejection & ostracism you’ve been experiencing is not the time to give up. It’s a time to explore you. No matter the age you are, there is something special to discover.

Family structure has been given to us with an expectation that it would provide a good & healthy foundation for us to start out in this world in. Unfortunately, for many that is not always the case. But that is no sign to give up. It’s actually a sign that you have something about you that’s quite special that most don’t understand & can’t seem to handle. And, there are many like you who have become great contributors to society because they’re not “like” everyone else.

You’re still here for a reason. So don’t give up, even if you find you seem to be alone in this season of life. There’s a way you can begin to grow into the best of who you are, and cultivate an inner circle of people who are assets to your blooming into the best you can be, and some may not be “family” in the physical sense at all.

If you have any questions, please feel free to DM me, and I’ll help further where I can.

Please don’t give up. Your life has so much purpose that you haven’t discovered yet, is just getting started!

I’m so sorry that you are going through such a difficult time. Unfortunately, not all parents are the loving, nurturing type. However, just because your family isn’t loving, doesn’t mean that life would be better without you. Do you know why your family is so hostile toward you? I would strongly suggest that you talk with someone, perhaps, even a professional counselor. If you need help, here is a list of professional counselors in the US: bit.ly/2bYaQqv.You may find that even having one person in your corner can make your life feel a little less lonely. I sympathize with you. I suffer from depression and when I’m in an episode, I tend to focus mainly on the negatives in my life. I allow them to be bigger issues in my head than they should be. Please don’t misunderstand. I am in NO way trivializing the issues you are facing. But sometimes, when we’re sad or upset, all we can see is the bad. We forget about the good in our lives, no matter how big or small it is. Please don’t give up. Find someone to confide in, stay strong, and you’ll start to see the hope and goodness right around the corner. I’ll be praying for you.
