This is not going to be a feel-good post. I warn you. I feel disgusted this morning and this is my attempt at getting rid of it: by dumping it on my readers.
Yeah, I can be cruel sometimes but I gave you advanced notice (see previous paragraph), so if you’re still reading it’s because you don’t mind or you’re curious or just bored.
I went to bed disgusted and woke up feeling the same way. No, this time it’s not because of my balance disorder, it’s something else. My relationships disgust me. The people I am closest to, three of them especially, members of my family.
I’m attempting to distance myself from my family but I’m not there yet. Family members are not things you can return for a refund. You’re born with them and they stick to you for life, if not physically then emotionally or psychologically.
The first one is the woman I am currently legally married to. Although I have declared our marriage null years ago, we are still bound because of the children. My disgust stems from something I realized yesterday which I will summarized in one sentence: She uses the children to impose her dominance over me. That is all I’m going to about that.
The second person is my sister who is almost my best friend. She keeps breaking up and getting back together with her boyfriend. She breaks up with him practically every week! And then she comes crying to me, so I listen. This causes us to become really close, and then first thing you know, she’s back with the guy and then I don’t hear from her for weeks. In other words, she only speaks to me when she breaks up with her boyfriend. What kind of friend is that?
The third person is my other sister who told me yesterday to “stop complaining.” Whenever I attempt at getting closer with my family, I open up and tell them how I feel, not to gain their pity, but to establish some sort of intimacy so we can offer each other mutual support. But yesterday all I got was a “stop complaining,” which translates into “Shut the fuck up — if you can’t say anything positive then don’t say anything.” So much for authenticity.
Anyway, thanks for listening, I just needed to vent a bit. I’m not feeling any better yet but maybe I will later.
