Just need to get it out
Old 11-28-2021, 08:32 AM

Sorry. I just need a somewhat kinda private place to get this out. I am so disappointed in my family. My husband is just an absolute a-hole and our kids are often selfish and disrespectful. And I am becoming more angry and bitter about it all. I look at the mess I've allowed my life to become and feel helpless to recover to anything I want it to be. I am very lonely and very unhappy. Sundays seem to be the worst days. Tomorrow will be better and things won't seem quite so bad. And eventually I will gain the strength to take more control of my life. But today is tears and self pity and anger.

Life certainly isn't often a Hallmark card is it? I'm so sorry that you've found yourself in a somewhat hopeless place. I'm sending good thoughts for you to find a clearer path to happiness for yourself. Perhaps the universe will put a stepping stone before you to find a some rest and vision. You deserve a peaceful life. Hugs to you, Crazy.

Thanks everyone! It has been a little better this afternoon. And it's not a coincidence that DH has been outside all afternoon

Amiga, thank you! It seems to take too much effort to get here these days. I'm in the Facebook group, but haven't officially connected my PT name and my real name.

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I know how aggravating families can be. My husband can sometimes drive me crazy. Start doing something just for you that can make you feel better or just go out by yourself for some space from them. You're right tomorrow will be better. And my dad used to tell me when I was depressed, "It's always darkest before dawn." Prayers for things to improve.

Sorry your life is a mess right now....but you're smart to come here and vent. You're not going to change those folks overnight. Here's hoping better days are ahead. Kids can go through times with nasty attitudes and still grow up to be nice, decent people. Hang in there and take care of yourself. Do something good for yourself every day, even if it's just a 10 minute walk or a phone call to a friend. Hugs and know we're thinking of you.

My DH isnít a jerk but we just donít have a great marriage anymore. My son and I had a come to Jesus talk (again) about him making selfish decisions at times too.

I lose sleep over these things and worry all the time.

Youíre not alone!

Divorced, now 14 years out I can tell you I MAKE THE GRASS GREEN. The happiness I experience is me. One can do this while married but it doesn't come easy. I read somewhere that the key to a deep, fulfilling, and lasting marriage is to put the other first
If both parties did this you would experience magic. You deserve magic. Feel better.

I would pm you but I don't know if that is still working. I could have written your post. Feel free to fiind me in the Facebook group and message me on FB for support, commiseration, or to have a shoulder to lean on. I think you can probably search my username in the FB group and find me.
