I want to be at peace with myself. For the past 2 years, I've been struggling with my relationship with my family. My parents specifically have always meant so much to me but for some reason they just cannot understand me or my emotions. I've always felt a responsibility for their actions and how everyone interacts with each other in our house. I always try to mediate things between everyone so there is constant peace and love among relationships.I feel burdened.

I think I've romanticized the reality in my head. Maybe my parents aren't as great as I would like to believe. This is so hard for me to accept because I've admired them like God. I don't know how to live with this possible fact or to accept it. I've tried so many things to avoid this suffering but nothing seems to work because I always end up feeling like this again. I wish I could move some where else but I don't have anywhere to go and I just couldn't walk away from my little sister.

I need to stop torturing myself and I need something that will work. It makes so incredibly upset and suicidal knowing that my parents can be like this. Please help

First of all, this is normal. Your parents will not understand you or your emotions. Your parents are who they are. Love them and be graceful to them but don't expect them to understand. You are you and the only leverage you have is working on yourself to develop your own discipline and establishing a daily spiritual practice. If you put the energy you now put into being frustrated into working on yourself and exploring who you really are, the rewards will be great
