Anonymous asked: I was just thinking because I felt bad about distancing myself
I’m not sure if you’re having issues or not with the ask button but you’ve sent in like ten of this ask :P
I don’t think you should feel bad but at the same time I can relate to how it feels. I go through times still (I cut my mother out in early November) where it’s hard to cope with the decision I made, particularly because it’s affected how easy it is to stay in contact with my younger brother (who still lives with them) and my Dad.
It’s also hard sometimes because family members will ask or kind of hint that they want us to work things out which is really hard on me because it’s not like I don’t want to work it out. I tried to work it out before it got to this point and it just wasn’t happening. And the stipulations I sent to my mother where ones that my counsellor confirmed where healthy and necessary so it’s not like I’m doing this to be malicious or anything. Gah, I’ve got really bad feels about this lately… I kind of alternate between being really depressed about it or really frustrated/angry.
Do you want to talk about your situation at all? Or anything else? You can keep messaging me anonymously or you can email me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org
I just find that sometimes talking these situations out with another party can be really helpful in one way or another :)
