My Mother Is Going Crazy

I’m not talking about hearing voices in the head because thankfully she’s not that crazy, but recently she has some major belief issues. She recently got sucked into this whole “4 dimensions,” she truly and legitimately believes that her “soul wavelength” is equal to that of a god, and that god lives in the 4D or something. I of course am not really believing in that sort of ridiculous comment, so I try to...

Child Sexual Abuse Sprouting into Other Problems

I was sexually abused several times as a child growing up by family members. I have notified my parents and am seeking help now. I was recently diagnosed with PTSD and moderate depression, and while I feel better just by finally receiving help, I can’t shake off the feeling that it’s worthless. I can’t bring myself to care about not only about myself, but about family, friends, future. Or my little sister. I was...

Recently she started telling me she doesn’t love her stepdad who has been in her life for 3 years now and who she’s been calling dad for just as long. Is this normal feelings? How can I help her through this transition better? I make sure to ask her all...

Wife Is Hurt by My Sister and Can’t Get Over It

My mother and sisters have long interfered with my life. Now that I have my own family (wife and daughter) I want to create our own experiences. They have always blamed my wife for us not seeing them as much as they want. We live 4 hours away and were expected to do all the traveling. In the spring, my one sister lost it on my wife and started yelling at her for something...

Emotional Infidelity

From the : I have been with my husband for 8 years, and married 3 months. Recently I discovered he has been sending emotional emails to another woman — talking about loving her and being with her. My husband maintains that no physical cheating occurred, but I am still broken hearted over the emotional words that he shared with someone else. I want to forgive him and work through this, how do I look...

My Dad Died, But All I Feel Is Relief

My Dad passed away a little over a year ago after a 13-year battle with cancer. Everyone in my family mourns him, but I never grieved and all I feel is relief. It doesn’t hurt me the way it does my siblings…it really doesn’t hurt me at all. I’ve never been that close to my Dad and even though everyone said he loved me dearly it rarely ever showed once I passed a certain...

My Fiancé’s Grown Daughters Still Live with Him

My fiancé and I are waiting for his daughters (35 and 36 years old) to get to a place where they can financially afford to move out! But one of them spends her money on things such as a nose job and botox and doesn’t seem to be concerned about moving out. She at least works. The other daughter doesn’t work. She has a 5-year-old son and has bipolar. She has very little work skills...

I always feel bad and I think of hurting myself a lot, I’m always depressed and I cry for no reason, I’m always tired and I don’t enjoy doing what I did before. I’ve tried telling my parents about the problem but they laugh it off and at this point I’m too...

Mother’s Validation Needed?

Do I move on from needing validation from my mother or risk upsetting her by confronting her again? I became very close to my mother after my parents’ divorce when I was 12. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized that it had been an unhealthy dependent relationship where she had relied on me to heal her wounds and to be her source of comfort. Part of it was feeling hurt...

My Parents & Siblings Consistently Call Me the Wrong Name

I feel this is a boundary and respect issue. A friend of mine disagrees. When I married, I never changed my last name. Professionally and socially I continued to use my maiden name. My parents and siblings completely tune this out. When I inform them, they tell me I am wrong. When my mother was signing her car over to me, my father tried to “correct” my name. Christmas cards, when family members sent...
