Usually i don't post in this forum. And in the past, my topics never really took off... for some reason. So i am really, REALLY hoping that this time will be different and i will get responses. Let's please discuss this, ok?
Here's the deal. My heart is aching over the way that my family has fallen apart. ( Those of you who have closeknit, loving and supportive families have no idea how very blessed you are! I long so much for this. )
Here's my history: My family has been dysfunctional for as long as I can remember. Even so, there were happy times and sweet memories along the way. Both in the family I grew up in and the married ( longtime now divorced ) ones.
However, each year all family members are drifting farther and farther apart. It is like an avalanche! There seems no way to stop it... Can anyone out there share their own experiences with this family disconnect and how to cope?
I am weary of daily crying and questioning why I was born into such a self absorbed, distant and even mean family. I've tried reaching out to them in caring ways. But nothing works..
I hate feeling unloved every day. :sad030:Satan even tells me this is a reason to end my life...and how nobody would miss me anyhow. Seriously, sometimes that sounds so very believable, you know?
Any compassionate uplifting discussion on this senstive subject of family rejection would be much appreciated. Thanks.
