Sorry for the rant...

Just putting this out there...

I am 26 years old and still stuck living at home with my parents because i don't make enough money at my job (that I love) to move out. I am the oldest of 4 children and my entire life I have been treated differently (in a bad way.) I wish I knew why. I live my life for my parents' approval and I'm never going to get it. I think the worst part is that I'm not allowed to have any real feelings about my raising/childhood because my parents mock me and act like they never did anything wrong. It's infuriating that they won't just admit it.

I am absolutely miserable here. I can't even believe that I'm still stuck here and still cutting at 26. I hate my life here. I am trying to hard to work on myself and be a happier person but I will never succeed as long as I am living here. There ARE people in this world who love and appreciate me, unfortunately, none of them are my relatives.

Suppose to start with things more on the positive end- it's really good you love your job so much, even though it doesn't pay very well. I think that's what really matters in a job. Also great that you know that you're loved and appreciated :) Hopefully there's comfort in those thoughts.

I'm sorry that things aren't so great where you are now. Knowing you'll never get a parent's approval is tough; though in the long run, it doesn't really matter. It's sad that you've been mocked and whatnot due to your emotions. Do you have any way of expressing how you feel? Maybe not necessarily around your parents, but just something that allows you to get it out.

Are there any changes you can make in your life? Just something to make it a little more tolerable? Probably wouldn't even need to be anything too drastic. Just little things to make the days more pleasant.

Hope you're doing alright, and that you'll be happier soon. Hang in there. *hugs*
