    It happened again. I can't share a story of any

    im a very outgoing person normally.

    .. around my family now all i feel comfortable talking about is work or making jokes about whatever bs is on tv. I think i need to move out once this opportunity comes to fruition. I'm at the point where i cant really stand them anymore.

    They would just make anything I'm going through

    10 times worse. I've found its better to suffer in silence. And, you know, weed helps.

    When I talk to them about something,

    they will later throw it back in my face as if I deserve it. I tried to make my sister feel better by telling her that mom didn't mean to offend her then she basically said I should forgive my boss ( BC I had shared a concern about my boss the day prior). I tried to make her...

    because she doesn't understand and I have no way to explain things to her. she is my only parental figure but I would like to say the most she did was give me food clothes and a place to stay. that's fine and all and don't think I'm taking it for granted, but emotional support...

    I can't say I like Disney

    because they would say grow out of it, stop being childish. I can't speak my interest in crime stories because of my slight interest in law cause they would think I am a creep who likes blood or stuff like that. I can't say a joke or tell a small story cause they would say I...

    My brother is almost ALWAYS too busy to talk,

    studying French, doing homework... And the few times I can, he always says his opinion is invalid. I do talk to my mom, but if it's about my problems, she only says it'll get better. She's been doing this for six months now. If it's about private life, she makes it all awkward...

    My family is so hypocritical.

    I talk about something and they are just so annoying about it among other things. I get frustrated at them because they act like they know everything and think they actually do.

    It's kinda sad actually,

    but I don't really feel like I can talk to anyone in my family about things that are bothering me. My mom and dad have always been kind of cold towards me and not as loving toward me, their only daughter, as they should be. It seems that they favor my younger brother over me and...

    At the risk of exposing myself

    as a woman with the mind of an angsty teenager, my family is driving me crazy. I just made my mom cry, ran into the room and locked the door. I just opted out of dealing with the guilt. It wasn't intentional, it never is. I just let her down a lot. It hurts every time, and...

    My family is really self absorbed.

    Every time I try to talk to them about how I'm feeling and what's going on in my life they always try to turn it into something about them or change the subject. I just get really down. My sister broke my window and now my room is cold and I just wanted to vent to my mom but she...

    People always think that they have to say

    something to someone, or give advice when something is up. They say stuff that comes off as dismissive or whatever. I know they mean well, but it's frustrating. So I just don't bother with them. It never makes things better anyway.

    It's really hard to talk to my parents about

    anything. They love to gossip to my other family members about my personal life. I tell them to keep it between us, and they go and tell every family member there is. That's why I just decided not to share anything with them anymore. It's hard though, I have some troubles and I...

    I learned a long time ago

    that I couldn't be myself around my family. I learned that there were things I could not say. Things I could not expect to receive from them. I no longer allow them to hurt me.
