Even though i am an adult and live far from my parents, they make me very nervous and confuse about my life goal. The memory of childhood always come back to me, they abuse and beat me.
I have my dream, however they think i can't get it and my dream just a day dream. Every date with my mom, she shame me for grant. I have several times discuss about the problem, which seems don't work at all. But as the same time, they help me find my job(which they don't like now), and buy my a little apartment.
I decide to cut off connection for a while, but I discover my heart still nervous and painful, I can't get power form almost everything. I can't really relax, I feel tired and imagine the ways to kill myself (however I don't wanna die totally, don't worry).
Things like that always come and return for years, i wanna a happy and peaceful life, I wanna have great power to do my work and my hobbits, I don't wanna always share bad things with my friends. And I read a book:《COMPLEX PTSD: FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING》 Pete Walker , which mentions that a group is helpful, finally i find this great forums.

Family relationships can be so complicated. Hopefully you can start to build your own support network that doesn’t rely on your parents so much, and find can find acceptance and validation elsewhere.

In the meantime, welcome to the forum!
 
hello click. welcome to the forum.

as the fifth of eleven children, i don't believe my parents noticed when i moved 1800 miles away and didn't bother to send a forwarding address. they pretty much left me. and vice versa, but i still didn't manage to escape their influence, not even now that they have both been dead for nearly a decade. the harder i work to reject that influence, the more it seems to dominate.

i seek my own balance in taking what works for me and leaving the rest. when i acknowledge their strong points, the nightmares of their dysfunctional points are easier to forgive and set aside. they were more sick than evil. i lean heavily on my peer support network while seeking this balance. the checks and balances of my peer supporters go a long way in helping me see clearly what to keep and what to forgive and set aside.

but that is me and every case is unique.

steadying support while you find what works for you.
welcome aboard.
 
Hi, I relate to this very much. I've come a long ways in healing but my relationship with my family is something I still struggle with at times. I will say it's to a much, much smaller degree. I have my own life, job, support system and hobbies. It's confusing when your family can be helpful in some ways and absolutely destructive in others. It makes the relationship complex and the emotions about the relationship complex.

That's right, sometime I just feel "LOVE" and "HATE" at the same time, which final remains deep sadness. It makes me feeling split. I don't know what i really feel to them. And sometime I just hurt them by words also, the feeling is terrible.

I am so glad that you have your supporter, I hope I can find one, too. My friends used be my supporter as well, but I find that my business still have some negative influence to them, I am not dare to share bad news to my friend in a long turn, for afraid of lost my friends.

i don't look for one supporter. i look for groups, such as the community established right here and weave those groups into a network to cover as many bases as possible. life and ptsd keep throwing me unpredictable curve balls. a diverse, well-maintained therapy network increases my odds of finding the help i need, when i need it.

it helps me allot to draw boundaries between my therapy network and my social network (friends, family, etc.) the emotional detachment i find within my therapy network helps me take clearer, more thorough looks at the problems. may my loved ones never be able to detach that far. they help me best AS friends and loved ones. it takes a village to heal. i try to let each village citizen stay true to their place in my life.
