Story...not a question.
A TEC 9 SHOULD CLEAR UP ANY REMAINNG HOSTILTY YOU HAVE TOWARDS YOUR FAMILY
Awe, sweetie im so so sorry!!! I some similarities in my childhood also. Trust me i know how badly it hurts to be lied too, or not told the truth about what's really going on...Wow though, your so strong to be handling all the unfair responsibilities that's being put on you. Damn...i have no advice. I jus wish i could hug you, or cry w/you. Just know that im behind you 100%...you sound like you really have your head together...Please DONT give up your dream of becoming a nurse. Do whatever it takes. Do it for you!!! I wish you the very best of everything!
How is your adoptive mom now? You're 20 now, I say demand a little attention in the sense that you want to do things for yourself. Let them know that as much as you love the kids(even though you don't, lol) you want to find a job, to get money to support yourself. They're being so selfish and inconsiderate, I dislike people like that regardless if they are family or not. When I empathize, I can tell its very uncomfortable, so I say work on getting out of there.
I was also thinking, you could, apply to some university and board there. idk. I'm just throwing out possible ideas. :-)
Regardless of anything though, never forget that YOU comes first.
I am sorry that you have had to go through that. And your sharing seems very measured, and that is a sign of your strength in putting up with the cards that life has dealt with you.
Thank you for being open and sharing. It is the first step to resolving it - acknowledgement. And congratulations on shedding light on it and not letting it fester.
In any case, remain strong and persevere and push through. Cliched I know, but tough times don't last, tough Mrstulips do. :D Push through, it will make you stronger. And it seems it has already has.
And God forbid! Please don't ever see yourself as a burden. Not even if they have told you that. You need to have more self worth, and it has to come from within. Love yourself!
I'm glad to hear that! Don't let nobody pull you down!
