does anybody else have this type of family? - June 2nd 2010, 05:18 AM

by family i mean my grandparents/aunts. they've basically half raised me since ive been over there every weekend for my entire life. Well my grandmother is the most supportive however my aunt and grandfather it seems NOTHING is ever good enough for these people. I'm afraid to make choices that i want to make because THEY wont approve. my work has this whole issue going on where the manager is trying to sabotage my weekly sales goal so i cant achieve them and then she can fire me (its been proven shes trying to do that) and im afraid to quit because the second i quit..im suddenly not a part of the family anymore.

im not even kidding, once i got hired at my current job and i informed my family about it they literally said "aw we missed you"...i was like wtf is this? its like i was being welcomed back to the family because i have a job. they blame anything bad that happens in my life on me. i HATE it. ive done NOTHING wrong at my current job and yet because i was accused of something, suddenly they all hate me. i dont know how i'm supposed to find another job i'm screwed. their negative attitude impacts my college too, i get so stressed with work and family that i do TERRIBLE in school. i hate life.

most of my aunts and uncles are the same, they like to butt in my life.

my mother never likes any thing i do. and to be honest, the moment i stopped worrying about pleasing every body else and started pleasing my self , i started being happy even when i screw up because i knew this time i was strong enough to make that decision........besides none of them is gonna be happy what ever you do , so why to bother doing ANY THING but the best for u, trust me my life is still hell.......but a hell that i can put my head up in , and it is good enough for me.
right now, i am making choices that are best for me, and when it works out it does, once it does it does not nothing changes..........every thing is still the same /the way i am treated...........etc/ but i am less affected by it.
besides, once you make YOUR own choices and it works out, ur self esteem increases.
once they do not , your strength and ability to face hard situation increases.
Both cases, you win, and once you start arranging ur life, stop worrying about them and once they SENSE that, trust me u'll feel better, and they'll respect u more because u'll no more need them as much.
as for the job, I am looking for one my self, and some times Freelance pays off well /especially if ur fluent with another lang or got web design skills/.
