There, But Not.

I love my family. I love seeing them. I love spending time with them. However there are times when I am there with them, but I have to put on the mask. I do not feel allowed to let myelf go with how I am really feeling with them. So, for the time I am there, all is well, but it isn't.

I know exactly how you feel;-( Sorry! It is the same with MY "family".

It can be exhausting! The last time I tried to open up to them, they shot me down and told me basically to get a grip, so I have stopped trying. I just smile and nod.
