3. "this is my biggest fear" In response to Reply # 0
my mom and i have the worst relationship ever it got really bad the last couple of years- i told her i wasnt willing to take the (emotional) abuse anymore which means i limit the amount of contact we have (and spent almost two years not talking - so this is progress) but she's also my only parent my biggest fear is something happens before we are able to resolve our issues or that we are never able to resolve our issues the way things are going, it is the latter its not up to me at this point
so... i dont really have any advice- i do empathise would like to hear from others as well, so hopefully this (becomes) a good post
btw,im sure it will get better. my condolensces

To keep going doesn't mean you have to suck it up. It doesn't mean it's possible to just suck it up either. Unfortunately abuse and hurt leaves the victims with the duty to process and cope. You're smart and if you're finding this tough I believe that's because you're in a difficult situation.
Right now and going forward you don't have to do anything except make sure you're okay. Me and I bet a bunch of others here are around if you ever need to be reminded.

i'm praying for your peace in this.

that's good that you tried to do that. hopefully that leaves you with no unresolved feelings. you at least made the effort. that says a lot about your maturity.

fam. we right HERE > < on that. for different reasons though. but i got a funeral to go to this week and i do. not. want. to. go. and that's an odd space to be in.
it doesn't get encompassed by the typical, "sorry for your loss, i'm praying for your peace and comfort" response. you have some element of grief and a lot more going on inside. i really feel bad about that. do folk you know irl know your backstory and how you are really feeling?
>i want to just shake it off and keep it moving like i normally >do. > >but when i try to shake it off >all i feel is more pain and anger and saddness and >loneliness.
no shortcuts to this process, unfortunately. you gonna just have to go through it to get to the other side.

you don't. > >I usually get through by saying everyone has it rough and you >just suck it up and keep going. > > >but when i try to suck it up >i just don't feel lik anything is left in the reserves. > >it feels like i am out of fight. >none of the distractions are working. > >i can't analyze my way out of this one. > > >it all just sucks. >i don't even feel bad for feeling sorry for myself. > >just fuck the entire situation.
main thing is that you got valid reasons to feel how you do. i'm sorry that it has been like this but i am praying that, if not your father's passing, then at least time will give you some closure.
ultimately, for whatever was lacking in your upbringing, you can resolve to be the opposite of that, and i pray that you have the strength and wisdom to do so.

She had an abusive mother and she made the mistake of staying very close to her. Total confusion, disorientation, frustration. It was tough and also for her siblings, though I mostly steered clear of the at the time. Looking back, I think the ones who saw her death as an opportunity to just move the fuck on did the best.
And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
> >i don't even feel bad for feeling sorry for myself. >
don't feel bad about it seems like you've come a long way despite the hardship and sometimes it's just too much. it's ok to be down and allow yourself to be down. just not forever. take your time, be good to yourself so you can heal/build some of the strength you've lost dealing with all of this. whatever you need to do. just know this isn't forever, it's just a bad time right now.

You don't have anything to prove to anyone. Feel what you need to feel. That may include mourning for the relationship that never was, but you always wanted. I'm sure it's a melange of fucked up emotions. They're yours and you don't have to bury them for anyone.
It will undoubtedly be fucked up for a minute, but I wish you peace and enlightenment on the other side of that journey.
