These days I have been feeling really low because I am having troubles with my parents and I do not have any siblings to share my feelings with. You see my father has always been both emotionally and physically abusive and last October I had to cut ties with him because he went too far. My mother has stayed with him through thick and thin because she is completely dependent on him for her daily needs and appearances matter a whole lot to her so divorce would be out of the question. Over the years, my father has come to treat my mother very cruely and she seems to just take it and take it. It really hurts to see her believe she needs to stay with him.
Anyway, I have tried to seek support from my one of my aunt's, who I believed cared for me, and it turned she completely shot me down and chose not to believe a word I said. She basically destroyed my confidence and trust in her and now I really do not like her anymore.
To make a long story short: I feel very alone now because my father has been able to turn the tables on me and make me look the bad person for cutting ties with him. Even though, a lot of my relatives know about my father's temper. absolutely no one has reached out to me to offer any ounce of support. So not only do I not have any siblings, but also I do not have any aunts, uncles or cousins who care about me.
I promise that I am a really good person; it's just that in my family no one really reaches out to each other.
So I am wondering if I am the only one who comes from such a family? It seems like everyone has a sister, brother, or cousin that they have known all of their lives. I feel totally out of place since I have no one like that.
Sorry if I have repeated what I have said before, but I really needed to share my story again to let you know how I was feeling.
Thanks for listening.
