Post what you cannot say

I wish you weren't so frustrated on a daily basis Graeme as much as i struggle with being bored/lonely on a almost daily basis nowadays but I'm glad that you really have your musical interest. I have faith that this situation will be sorted out.:)
It’s difficult to not be, lily. Especially when I’ve made more of an effort than my sisters to actually try and sort it.
But my mother doesn’t seem all that interested in changing her way, or looking after herself properly. :cry:

It’s like watching an alcoholic or drug addict in the grip of their addiction, and yer trying to get through to them. But, they just shrug off yer concerns as if they mean nothing, and go back to slowly killing themselves.

I know... none of them seem to acknowledge that, though. Or, if they do, it’s more outta self-pity in an attempt to shame me for pointing out how $h!% things have gotten over the year. But somehow, that’s comedy to them... me pointing out all the dysfunctional pish.

It not even the being treated badly that bothers me, more so the being told I’m right then having my advice fall on deaf ears. “Oh, I’ll change... ah promise”. When? F…ck knows.

Yet, my mother is still wasting money, or giving it away to one of my cousins who rarely visits cuz my mum feels sorry for her (my cousin). But she still, in the same breath, complain that we’re barely getting by... Gee, ah wonder why? :mad:

I was kinda hoping I’d get a place of my own, but that doesn’t seems likely. It’s been over a year, now, since I applied to my local housing department. Got my name pretty high up on waiting list for rehousing, but never heard back. :(

My mother recently put my name on the lease of the family house, which was done so I could apparently have more of a say in things. But that’s just amounted to actually be told things, rather than finding out days later. Even though the house is now, technically, partial mine, my say as far as how things should be still counts for sweet eff all...

I just get the same ol’ reaction: “Stop naggin’... yer getting on at me”.

To be honest, I’ve just gave up, really. Trying to put most of my time and energy into making music. Since I see little point in wasting time reiterating things I’ve been saying for years.
Oh now I know 😞 I know dysfunctional relationships are horrible and we must do our best to try to either fix them or leave. I know..
and you have to try to keep yourself from being to damaged by the insanity of it in the meantime. Not fun!!!

I am watching all three LOTR’s too thanks for the great idea!

Graeme this makes me so sad and angry that they are treating you so badly. I am so sorry you are still in such a bad situation. We all here really care about you and want so much for you to move out and be free of it. You don’t deserve to be treated like that!
If only you could break free.
Definitely agree with Molly. We all love you Graeme!

It's a few years too late for the whole tryin' not to be damaged by the insanity, unfortunately. :((n) Just sayin'... the damage seems to have been done.

I've felt caught in the middle of the dysfunction since I was a wee lad, so it's not surprising I've become as withdrawn and wary of people and their intentions as a result. Not saying that as a sob story, it's just how it is. I mean, I did grow-up around women who were, and still are, quick to aggressive overreact when criticised and have a tendency to lose the plot when things go wrong, and am talkin' the slightest thing...

:D(y) Enjoy ! Hopefully yer not doing as I did and watching them over the course of 2 and a half days. :oops::LOL:

i know it's so difficult, it's sad :cry: but i have faith that things will be sorted out by God. :)
I'd like to be hopefully that things will change for the better next year, but I've been letdown too often when my family make those kinda promises.

Definitely agree with Molly. We all love you Graeme!
;):)
