Home Doesn't Feel The Same
I been having a lot of trouble. Sometimes I want to just die my family has problems, and it hurts to see my family falling apart. My dad cheated on my mom. It hurt a lot because he cheated on her with my aunt. He has a daughter and it seems he loves her more then me. He blames me for everything, and when I told my school social worker.
She called my parents down. He seemed to think I just wanted attention it's not true. I have been going through a lot. I sometimes lock myself in my room, and every time I do my dad always yells at me. Home doesn't feel like home anymore
Thanks for writing in. When families are in crisis it is difficult to find that comfort and security that you used to feel at home. Sometimes as things settle down and some normalcy is restored, so will your feeling of safety and comfort. It will never be the way it used to be, just because things cannot go backwards. What may happen as a result is that you will find things to comfort you that perhaps you hadn't found comforting in the past.
Perhaps reading a good novel while listening to your favorite music in your room will give you a sense of comfort. Maybe baking cookies for the family will warm the kitchen, fill the air with a wonderful smell and bring you a sense of comfort. Look for those opportunities.
Please know that there are things that you have no control over in your life and when you try to control them, the frustration you feel can be overwhelming. Recognize what those things are and just pray that they turn out the way they should.
