I Don't Love My Family

    I'm sure when I was little,

    I loved my mum, dad and sister a lot. But as I've grown up, and especially now that I've got a boyfriend and am getting closer to all my friends, I don't feel any connection to them at all. Sure, I care if something goes wrong with them (if they're sick or hurt) but I just don't...

    How does it feel when your family doesn't

    love/care? It's a cycle of hope/ wishful thinking and then grieving process again and again... An uncle, cousin or sister that forgot about you... Wrapped up in their own lives...you wonder what you did wrong to deserve that kind of treatment... A mother who never thought you...

    I Don't Love My Family

    I  don't know whether it's normal or not not to love your family members, most of them at least. From the time i could 1st remember, i never felt any bond or any type of closeness with them, and the feeling was mutual on both sides. They went on about their business...

    I Don't Love Them; I Just Need Them.

    What brought me here is the realization that I don't care how my eventual suicide might affect my family. People often use the phrase "loved ones" to refer to family and friends, and say that they wouldn't want to commit suicide because their loved ones would be devastated. Well...

    Is it normal? I mean,

    I love my mom, my dad and one of my cousins (he is like a brother to me, we were raised together and he was the only one who truly cared about me) but I really hate the rest of them (well, there is a aunt I do like but, she is the only one), I mean they are always trying to...

    Growing Up Unwanted In A Family

    I'm seventeen years old and I've grown up with a childhood that can only be described with the understatement "dysfunctional". When I was six, my parents divorced after years of bitter, violent arguments that went on throughout the night. When they did finally divorce, I had to...

    I'm not sure if i love my family is this normal?

    I've never felt any kind of a connection with any of them and I genuinely could care less if we never spoke again. Not because i hate them or because they're awful i just cant seem to make myself give a crap about having a relationship with any of them. Maybe the problem is...

    I Don't Love My Family
