I have just come back to DS after 3 years. Your group looks like a good place for me. I am suffering from a lot of depression and need support. This subject of family walls is the situation where my brother's wife and grown children don't let me get close to them --even tho we go to and see each other at church each week, when my 3 nieces were high school and younger they were open and closer to me. Now there is an intentional wall between my sister in law and her 3 girls towards my side of the family. It hurts me more because I was closest to my nieces than my two sisters were so it really feels like rejection. I did nothing but show love and support .My sister in law always has been harsh, self promoting, but was more open in the past to me. Now her daughters who are all married and have started families they seem to be always pushing me away. I am in a bad place in life but I am not the only one who has noticed it. My self esteem is so very low and I really need my family members to show me respect and appreciation. I am becoming desperate for a compliment or some sign of care or openness from them. Anyone else have experienced this or has some ideas of how to overcome this or not let it hurt me so much?
