Why? - December 1st 2018, 03:54 AM

So my flipping parents are yelling at me about money, wth? I feel like crap as it is losing my job and now they're getting on me about my freaking bills. I am beyond ticked off and depressed, so much so my thoughts are terribly negative. I see my psychiatrist tomorrow too, hopefully she can prescribe me something that will knock my butt out at night so I can get some sleep. I've only slept 5 hours in the last 2 days. I'm trying as hard as I can to find another job but it isn't going to be an instant thing so why the hell can't they get off of my back?!


I can do it
I'll get through it
But I知 only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I知 only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I知 only human, yeah

I am so sorry you lost your job. That is tough especially around the holidays. You need to be upfront with your parents and say you either are going to be supportive of me in my pursuit of getting another job or say nothing because it is making things worse on me.

Well, I kind of exploded towards them and yelled and cursed Let's just say I think that they got the point, they haven't mentioned money since. I probably could have been calmer but I was at a breaking point.

Maybe that is what they needed. I don't like exploding at my parents but if the point gets made then well that is a good thing.

Hey there,

I am sorry you lost your job. I imagine that cannot be easy. It must not be easy to have your parents treating you the way you did. I think it's great you were able to get them to back off even if it meant you had to yell. I know yelling doesn't always feel great but sometimes we have to do it.

I hope that you are doing a bit better. I'm here if you need anything.

I'm so sorry to hear this is happening to you, Court. Your parents should be more considerate and understanding because you just lost your job. It's going to take more time to save up money for bills now that you don't have a steady income. This is not your fault, remember that.

I hope things improve for you soon.

Hi Court,

I am so sorry that you are having a hard time right now and I hope that you will be okay soon. Sending you hugs. I am truly sorry for what has happened with your job. I send you good thoughts so that you are able to find another one. This one is going to be amazing.

Would you be able to talk with your parents about all of this and how you are having trouble paying some of your bills now and see if they would be able to help you out with this for a little bit. Or can you ask one of your siblings or friends if you can borrow some money from them and then you have the money you will be able to pay them back so that you can pay the bills and not get behind.
I know that sometimes it is hard to ask someone for help when we are going through something. Maybe they would be able to help you out with this and so that you will be okay soon. Would you also be able to talk to your parents and let them know how this has been affecting you and that is why you were asking them for help because you are not sure what else to do or where else to go. See what they say back to you, maybe you can write down on paper that you need help if you do not want to talk to them face-to-face and have them read the paper. This may be easier for them to read so that they can understand everything that you are going through, then ask if all of you can sit down together and talk calmly about this.

Would you be able to talk to your parents about how when they are yelling at you that you do not like it and how it is making you feel. Then all of you can talk about this and other things calmly together.

When you are talking calmly with your parents and they are talking calmly back, you can say everything that you need to say to them and then they are able to say something back to help you out. Sometimes when everyone is getting upset or one person is getting upset about something and then they will not always listen and then it is hard to talk to them. Say what is going on with you because they do not want to listen. So if they are able to listen to you and are calm about it, then it can go a lot better. No matter how old we are our parents should not just start yelling at us because we are going through something. It is ok to always sit down and talk about this and they can help us out. But it is not right to just yell. Would you be able to also tell your parents that you are doing the best to get another job and you do not need them adding the stress to you about this. I really hope that you will be okay and that you are able to find another job. If you can Google jobs that are around you and see if you can go and apply for some of them and see what happens.

When you are getting upset about this, try to get your mind off of this for a while if you can. Try going for a walk or putting on a funny TV show or movie or drawing or reading or anything else that you enjoy doing to help you out for a while. Sending you hugs to help you.
