Dealing With Stress

I Will Be Distant

I live in a family when I’m not free to express my personality. Interestingly enough my family is very silly and playful, but my ways of being silly and playful are rejected. I’m an outcast in a sea of people I thought would understand me. But they don’t understand me and they don’t try to.

They want me to understand them and help them. I don’t get the same respect that they want me to give. My family gives me headaches. I don’t want to continue getting headaches and stressed out, it’s not worth it.

So I have decided.

I will be distant. Why you ask? Because I can’t keep rolling my eyes at people I can’t stand. I don’t have to be in their face and know every detail of their life. It’s not necessary. I won’t pretend to like them or try to engage with people who can’t stand me. I will not go to their events. I’m trying to get better mentally. I can’t do that with certain people around. My family triggers my OCD and they trigger horrible memories. So I will distance myself from them

This is better for me. So, I love you family, but I can’t with you. Let’s keep at arm’s length.

I am a personal blogger! I love to write and I love cookies and cake. And cheesecake. I love talking about my experiences in life. I like to write fiction and invent different worlds in my head. I enjoy watching movies, but I'm not a horror fan. I like watching Disney movies and hope to one day create a Disney Princess.

    This is understandable. I truly hope they come around to you. But there’s nothing wrong with distancing yourself from family. They can be the main ones who hurt you in the end.

    Hard choices. Sometimes for the good of our mental health we have remove those distractions that effect it most. We wouldn’t ask an alcoholic to hangout in a bar and then expect him to work on his recovery.
    Challenges with family can be difficult and separating from those challenges will not be easy. Some will be open and understanding others will not, those will likely be the ones you need the separation from the most.
    Be strong.
