Hello folks. I gotta tell you families, sometimes, can make you feel lower than anything. I am now on my own, and have been for a few years, but my family can still make me feel like I am a piece of crap. I have done some growing here, the very hard way of reality hitting me in the face more than a few times. They say they have seen me grow and stuff, but they sure don’t know how to show it. When I am with them I feel like I am supposed to wait my turn and be a “good little boy” and just sit there like a lamp shade until they feel like I am worth their time to talk to. I know I have to regain their trust in me for a lot of crap I have done over the years, but you would thing that I would at least warrant some respect for being one of them. Sufficed to say there are trust issues that run both ways in this part of my life. I tell you I wonder about that sometimes with them. there are times when I just feel like telling most of them to go to hell for how I am treated. I feel like my opinions don’t mean a damn thing to them no matter what I say. I could be dead right and made to feel like I am somehow in the wrong for even speaking. I am trying to get better at expressing my feelings to them, but it doesn’t seem like the right time half the damn time, cause I only see them, for the most part, during family gatherings that I don’t want to be the downer for the whole thing. I have written to them in the past and I think I will, again, in the future to get some of these things straightened out, hopefully, but there are no guarantees that will happen or that they will even listen to what I have to say. I just wonder, sometimes, if I shouldn’t just cut all ties with my family and just leave them alone and vice versa. Families you can’t live with them and you can’t live without them.

     I'm the youngest in my family and it feels like no one takes my opinion in. It's as if they still see me as a little girl. The only time they do enjoy talking to me, is complaining about me and the things I do.

    My family doesn't believe in depression I may have told you that so when I'm around them I have to pretend to have a happy face and if I sit and don't say anything they attack me with 50 questions on how come I'm not talking to them.  I answered them last weekend that I won't be around to bother them I'm looking for a way out and another place to live maybe in another state.  I know how hard families can be and I hope yours realizes you are trying to make things better and cut out the bullshit.
