Just need a little advice this morning. I'm nearly 22, have been moved out for 3 years from under my parents roof, am still very close to my family, but... lately, I'm going kinda crazy. My parents are fighting all the time and honestly, I wish they would just seperate because I believe they are better apart as two different people. My younger sister is just out of control and there is no stopping her. Now, I want to be there for my family, but sometimes it's just too much. Like this weekend was my first weekend to myself to get everything done for Christmas, and what happens? A huge blow up amongst them, and of course somehow I get sucked in. I really don't want anyone angry with me and I want to be there for support but I also need time to me. I'm having some internal deamons I am battling and am trying to work on who I am and just sometimes don't need the extra baggage. But how do you tell your family enough for now?? How do you explain to them that you feel like you're giving all the support with nothing in return? I don't want to anger them and I don't want them to think I don't care, because I do. I just want them to see that right now I can't be the foundation holding them because my spirit is just weak right now. It's honestly one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Any adivce is helpful. Thank you so much!
