Don't Mind Them, They Can't Hurt You.


I have a family whom love me so much. But when I dropped out from a good university because of mental depressions, they started to turn their back on me.

Even my own mother ignores my presence in this house. Ironically, they never asked me why I dropped out from the university in the first place. They never ask me what's wrong, what's the problems, what's going on in your life? They just silently let me float around this house like I'm a ghost they can't see.

I tried to talk to them about my problems, but they prefer to folds their arms and just let me be. Sometime I felt confused because I'd always had my back supported by my family. It makes my depression became worse than before and I started to slit my wrist every time I felt the urge to suicide.

But today I woke up and see outside the window; the sun shine so brightly I'm almost blinded by it. I shed a tear of grateful that I'm still alive and can feel the warmth of the sun. Now I thought to myself; "why bother mourning about people who doesn't need you, when you have to do your best for what YOU NEED in your life." I smiled and jump out of my bed to face the future.

My future are still unknown, but its MY decision on who I want to be, not anyone's decisions to treat me like a ghost or ignore me like a trash. My family will forever be my family. It doesn't matter if they don't want me anymore, what matter most is what I want in my own life right now. I'll take baby steps if it's difficult and I'll run like crazy if its there in front of my eyes.

Rejoice myself, and rejoice my friends, you can make yourself even more precious than the sun if you want to. Just believe in yourself, cast away those unwanted or those not wanting you, step forward and make your own life beautiful!

I can relate to this story, you do need to put a little space between yourself and your family.<br />
<br />
Unfortunately, as much as we love our parents, and they love us back, there is always a generation gap between us.<br />
<br />
They can't understand us, and we can't understand them.<br />
<br />
There is a time that we should accept the fact that we are grownups and can decide for ourselves, even if this decision doesn't seem right to our parents.<br />
<br />
Great decision, you do need a bit of support.
