Christie Posted July 26, 2010 Report Share Posted July 26, 2010 I've never really known how it feels to have a support system. I've had friends, but they don't have the mind of a depressed person (depressed people are supposedly in the greatest state of mind. Making decisions of life and death.) and were uncomfortable. I understood. So what I what to know is, how do you build a relationship with your family?And I know that is a pretty sad question, but...Right now I am pretty close emotionally to my sister. Totally odd. Its taken me about a year and a half to get here. I'm close to my brother in the sense that we are geeks who are pretty funny and love to goof off.My parents are a hard case. We have somewhat of a language barrier and we have a cultural brick wall. It gets a lot better when I do chores and the such. I'm not a bad kid. I'm not. They've hurt me in the past [telling me I was the source of the family problems, verbal and physical abuse, and neglect], but they are my parents. I want to have a good relationship with them.So if anyone has any advice on building familial relationship, please reply.Thanks,Christie :cool: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
