We are coming to the end of this hellish year and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year.
There is a whole new side of me coming out and I’m looking forward to seeing what life is like now.
I’ve had to learn how to live without blood family. I’ve learned that’s it’s not me, it’s them. You can’t help people if they don’t even acknowledge the problems.
I’ve also learned that even if you are blood family, if you are not “present” in my little family’s life here, you are not welcome. No phone calls, no cards in the mail, nothing.
Why waste everyone’s time? Just to be petty? My family and I are 100% fine without you. And yes those people I’m talking about are my parents.
2018 is a new year and I’m finished with all of the toxicity that is my dysfunctional family.
2017 will be the last year I have ANY contact with my parents and brother. I don’t care for how long, all I know is that I’m going to be the first person in my family to be mentally healthy.
I’m standing up for myself and making standards and boundaries that neither one of my parents helped me make when I was younger.
I’m no longer going to be a doormat for people to walk all over and treat however they want in that moment.
I’m no longer going to allow people to give me shit for no reason. I’m standing up for everything I believe in and feel.
People don’t respect me and that’s mostly because I’ve never been able to stand up to people. And that’s going to change. I will no longer suffer because of other people.
