  5. Never Good Enough

    Yep. So many people in my life have reiterated that. It's gotten to the point where I don't depend on anyone so I don't get let down. I've been dragging my feet about cutting them off.
  6. New here

    I am new(ish) - not sure when I become "not new!". I am finding my way around the site and there is a lot of support here. It has taken me a while to get to grips with things and read through stuff, but the more I do the more I realise how helpful this forum is (will be). One thing I notice is that some people say "my stuff isn't as bad as other peoples". I think everyone's is different but equally bad, because it is THEIR experience and you can't compare it to anyone else. It may not SEEM as bad as other people, but it is bad to you or you wouldn't be here. Don't underestimate the trauma you have been through. I think that we (as a group) probably underestimate our own trauma because it doesn't seem as bad. Sorry, I am going off tangent here. Thing is - there is lots of ways we can have been hurt, and have been, and all our stories are different, but just as significant. I am very glad to have found this site and and glad I am growing in confidence to use it. My first post was a bit OTT, all guns blazing, and it got moved (too much info). You will be glad you found the site too and will find buckets of support. xx

    I've noticed that the whole way a family system functions is by power imbalance. I'm in charge you aren't. People don't get a lot of power in life so if you come to someone with a problem where there is a power imbalance between you they will just demonstrate their rank. If you find people where there isn't a big power imbalance, they will treat you better. That's why many survivors don't speak to family.

    Still crying.. can't get over it.... and i'm trying my best to forget it.. to move on.. Still think about suicide.. how to end it all...how to get rid of this feelings.. But somehow still manage to smile .. laugh... jokes with others.. While at 3 a.m .. 😭😭 I'm all alone.. 😢 and think.... i don't wanna live anymore.. this isn't fair.. why no one get it?? Why people put blame on me?? It's not like i wanna get that things happen to me! Why no one ever considered it.. never ask me how i feel..how i ever survive this depression anxiety all this things... I don't care how many years its gonna take.. but why.. no one believe me... it's not my fault.. i don't want all of this things to happen.. i don't want.. I wanna dissapear.. i want to forget all of this.. 😢 Sorry for my broken english.. 😭😭
  11. That's hurt me

    Hye.. sorry to ask.. why?
  12. Never Good Enough

    Told I didn't matter. By my father no less. This is an old memory, I don't know why I still remember it. He told me once that if he and my mother had only had ten kids. Then, it wouldn't have mattered if I ran away. It wouldn't matter if I fucked up royally since they'd have ten, precious children who wouldn't have done the things I did. I'll never be good enough for them, will I? I'll never be good enough for anyone and maybe that's okay. I'll be alone, with a revolving door for people to come in and go out. Perhaps I like it better that way. I never want to hear someone say those words again. "you're not good enough".

    Thank you ❤
  14. I am good about giving other people advice and putting a smile on their face including in this forum. I guess it is because I been through so much and don’t want to see others hurt like I have. Sometimes I wish I would listen to my own advice when life throws me up against a brick wall like today when my ex mother in law wants my life to evolve around her and control me. I get so sick of it. Sometimes I want to give up because of what all is against me, but I have to keep going for my kiddos who I do love dearly. My kiddos are the ones who keep me going besides my personal beliefs in this life. :(

    Hi catmom, From one cat mom to another, welcome! I am very sorry for what you went thru 3 years ago and the struggles that you still face. You will find much support here tho, with many understanding and kind members. It is hard to have supportive people in your life, yet they really don't know what to say or how to help. I am glad you decided to reach out here, it is a big step to take. I wish you many more forward steps as you walk down this path of healing. Mary
