Totally unsupportive family
#21
Unfortunately, sometimes you are related to Not Nice people. However, at 30, you should be away from this type of thing. Have you moved on with your life away from them?

It appears that OP is working on that now?

@dd11, It is not always easy to break free. Your family either depend on you, or you feel like you cant just abandon them, or you are emotionally too stuck because of guilt or some sort of love that is hard to shake away from.

It's not easy from many positions. Emotional side is important as well, as it's hard to just get rid of people who were around you for 30 years.

And my situation is even more difficult, as not long ago I had another big failure in life, lost results of two years of hard work, and all investments due to failure of my project. So I had to temporarily return to apartments which are 50% mine and 50% their, and now I need to get money first to rent something else; it takes time, as prices here are high, and salaries are low.

I know. I didn't say it was easy. Just asking at what point the OP was in the process.

At point of temporary having to live together with them after long time on another part of the globe :-)

If you are living with them, then they are not "totally unsupportive" then? I mean, part of the issues that we all sometimes have is talking about life in catastrophic language. Or the language of All/Never, etc. Not saying they are kind or pleasant, but if you are at least living together is that not at least a modicum of support?

Not trying to speak for anyone, but from what I got this thread was a bit more about the emotional side of things.

I live with my family but the lack of morals, respect and the amount of ignorance that I have to endure while doing so hardly make it easier for me to think of them as supportive or caring.

Well, we can take the OP at his word that he is suffering at the hands of his family. Or, we can nitpick him with semantic debates intended to further alienate him. The former would be a good faith effort to understand and to help. The latter would simply be destructive on a variety of levels.

I am trying to be helpful. I may be way off base. I don't know the details, only the OP does. Sometimes perspective can make a situation more tolerable.
