Please, don’t give up hope, you can make new friends and find a new boyfriend, but first of all you need to work on your self worth. (http://www.stevenaitchison.co.uk/blog/29-ways-to-increase-your-feeling-of-self-worth/)
If you have some interests or like playing some sports, join some clubs, you will meet new people and make friends. There is always someone here who you can talk to.

It is understandable that you feel hurt and upset about your mother’s reactions which are wrong! You don’t deserve to be treated like that and you are doing the right thing looking for help. I hope you will find some counsellor or someone to talk to. There are many charitable organisations which provide help or advise. You are a bright person, you can get through this, it will make you stronger, but please seek only a non-violent solutions! Good luck

2012-02-26 01:45:53 on Im 39 and worthless !
We all doubt our ability in certain areas of our lives, but a deep-rooted sense of worthlessness comes from believing that somehow we are not as valuable as others. If this sounds familiar, b> it’s important to understand that feeling worthy isn’t something given to us by others, but something we have to build ourselves. /b>
Turn things around:
- Accept we all come with our own unique talents that we have to take pride in to believe we are worthy people.
- While it’s fine to think highly of others, it’s irrational to translate this as meaning they are better than you. Admire others’ traits, but not at the expense of your own.
- b> Be aware that we teach others how to treat us. /b> Practice projecting yourself as someone whose opinions are just as valid as others, and your sense of self-worth will begin to rise.
Hope you can turn your life around, good luck!

hi, you have a lot to deal with, both your parents having issues (mental, physical), and not having time or energy to take a proper care of you. it is their responsibility and they are failing you. please, try to talk to them about your problems, and if they don’t listen, seek out a help from a (depression) helpline. there might be even someone at your school who you can talk to (a school nurse, or your teacher).
your memory loss is a cause of your stress, it will improve once you deal with your depression. and once your life improves, hopefully your envy disappears, too.
2011-10-09 04:58:19 on I was beat up by my brother last night, and today I woke up with sore ribs on my right side.
my brother used to beat me up my whole childhood. and if i tried to fight back, he would destroy my things, or beat my dog when i wasn’t around. my mother never did anything about it. i still have many psychological problems because of that. no matter in what country you are in, do find some help for yourself. there are many child helplines whether related to parent or sibling abuse. please, seek out help for both physical and psychological side, it is not right what is your brother doing to you and that your parents are not protecting you!

her sister is not interested in changing the situation at all. but thank you for your replies, Araz!
2011-10-09 04:45:07 on stuck, sad..Is being myself going to hurt me?
Hi, sorry for my late reply. Great that your husband realized you needed his support! How is going now? Hope it’s getting better! It would be good if you could move somewhere where your in laws would not have or had just a little influence on your husband.
2011-10-04 16:08:49 on sibling rivalry.
she’s done it, they said they were too busy (with her sister child). so, you see, it is hopeless..
2011-09-25 08:08:46 on stuck, sad..Is being myself going to hurt me?
hi, so from what you describe your in-laws are basically bullies who envy you, and that’s why they treat you this bad. unless you become some ugly beast, i don’t think they will stop.
what makes your situation even sadder is that your own folks would not support you leaving! no doubt that you are still young to start a new, better life; you do deserve better! i am afraid it will have to be you who will have to make a choice about leaving.
there are plenty of resources about dealing with bullies/difficult people/in-laws, but the important fact is that you will not be able to change your in-laws! you can only change yourself.. and you either become what your in-laws want you to become thus accepting you, or you choose a new life and leave, which would also leave you entirely alone without your family’s support.
to me you seem as a strong person, and i have no doubt that you can succeed in life and start from the beginning. i have seen many, many ladies wasting their lives in unhappy marriages, but also can understand that a leap into an unknown where you will stay all by yourself is difficult. saying that, you can always come here and find some support! ;)
best wishes, and God bless you!
2011-09-22 07:26:13 on stuck, sad..Is being myself going to hurt me?
oh dear, oh dear, what a situation! i am sorry you are having all these problems with your in-laws. your husband is not supportive at all and your family and friends are far away. i’d say that you should talk to your husband how serious the issue is for you and how it is making you feel, and if he cares about you, he needs to understand and support you, and talk to his parents. You may wish to search for some articles online how to deal with in-laws. Good luck!
