My little sister hates me, and my parents think I'm lazy and ungrateful, I really need to clean out my closet and I spent yesterday crying uncontrollably. I feel like 💩 because my dog can tell when I'm frustrated and it's not his fault he's exited to play, my bf is really pissed at me *sigh* I've spent my summer stressing that's what I did stress out everyday, but not once did I mess up and self harm as much as I wanted and or want to I haven't I'm really looking forward to this year but at the same time I'm scared

It's possible they are stepping all over you, I have allways felt really bad about people not liking me or something I did, but I recently thought to myself that it's ok for me to be angry or sad or be the guy someone is mad at for awhile. It's so awesome how you didn't give in to hurting yourself!! You sound like a good person and people should be giving you a break every one in awhile and understanding and compassion. My advice would to assertively ( but not angry or agressive) and fairly voice your feelings and needs ( preferably when whoever you're talking to is in a good mood so they will be more receptive) also use as many "I" statements as possible and try not to point fingers, but get what you need to say out. Try to speak in a way where the person listening doesn't have any reason to get defensive or angry, these things have worked well for me:)

Thank you, I'll give it a try :3
