why does my family treat me so poorly?
Honestly, I don't know how to feel and if my family is treating me very poorly and abnormally.
my mother is always yelling at me for instance when
they both scream at me my brother uses the excuse that oh
addition to this my mother always complains to me about how she can't afford anything and how she has a headache and lastly
Welcome to the BB forums, and sorry to hear that you're going through a rough time with your family. I imagine it must be very hard on you to be treated this way by your family.
I have a few questions so I can understand the situation better, but feel free to answer as much or as little as you want to. 🙂
Firstly, I'm curious to know how old you are? I don't think being constantly yelled at at any age is ok, but knowing how old you are might help me (and others) to guide you to more relevant places for help.
You said that you're very nice and kind like your dad; does he live with your mum, brother and you? And if so, does he ever step in and ask your mum or your brother why they treat you that way?
Do you have another family member that you can talk to about this? Maybe a grandparents, or an aunt/uncle/cousin? And do you currently see a professional in regards to your depression?
I don't think that being in that sort of environment is good for your wellbeing at all so hopefully we can help you out.
Stay strong x
thank you so much for taking time out of your day and honestly
So sorry I didn’t responsed to you earlier, I’ve just had a ridiculously busy week.
My advice would be to try and reach out to the school counsellor, or maybe even a GP who can connect you with another health professional. I think having someone to talk to is important for you.
Also, health professionals will be able to explain to your family (with your permission of course) how you feel about how you’re being treated. I think sometimes as much as you may try to explain to someone that you don’t need like how they’re treating you or what they’re doing, it sometimes takes an external person to really get them to understand.
