Exclamation Don't know what to do! - September 4th 2012, 08:53 PM

I just got back from my fiance's place last night and as soon as I walked in, the trouble with my family kicked off again, their words really hurt me and they never apologise for what they said even when they know it was wrong of them. They say stuff like you are a scruff and you don't belong here. I just wish I had a job to get my own place because I just can't stand much more of this. Another thing my parents said really hurt me, when they said I was a scruff and had no personal hygiene (which none of that is true because I do) they said I don't see why your fiance is with you. The truth is they don't know my fiance at all and I know they don't like him. He came over mine today to support me and they just kept blanking him when he said hello. We just kept in my room out of the way.

But their cruel words that they have said all these years are hurting me deep inside and I feel like I am going mental. What should I do? Please, someone help!

Move out? I mean, that seems like the obvious choice to me, since you're already engaged and will eventually move out anyway. Sometimes, you have to make a major life transition like that before you can work toward salvaging relationships with family members. That was the case for me with my mom - it took me a few years, but eventually, we started to feel more comfortable around each other. We really just needed space from each other, and moving out allowed us to get that space, reassess our relationship, and begin to treat one another with more respect.

Hi Robin, we don't have jobs at the moment so we can't afford a place of our own as the government is stopping financial help with rent and such. I have tried talking to them and I have tried explaining that their words hurt me. All I want is for us all to get on, my parents havs always treat me like dirt but I have learned to ignore most of what they say. But I couldn't ignore what they said the other night. These words hurt me more than any nasty thing they have ever said to me.
