Its a family

Being in a family where you are loved by one parent but disliked by your siblings can be a deeply emotional experience. On one hand, the love and support from your mother can feel like a beacon of hope and a safe haven in an otherwise tumultuous situation. It can be a source of strength and comfort that helps you navigate the difficult relationships with your siblings.

But at the same time, the pain of being rejected or disliked by your siblings can be almost unbearable. It can feel like you’re constantly walking on eggshells, never quite sure what will set them off or why they seem to hold such animosity towards you. It’s a lonely feeling, knowing that you don’t have the support of the people who should be closest to you.

It’s easy to internalize this rejection, to wonder what you did wrong or why your siblings can’t see the person you truly are. You might feel like an outsider, like you don’t quite belong in your own family. It’s a feeling that can be hard to shake, even as you grow older and start to build your own life and relationships.

But it’s important to remember that you are not defined by the opinions or actions of others, even your siblings. You are worthy of love and respect, no matter what anyone else thinks. It may take time, but it’s possible to find a sense of peace and acceptance within yourself, even if your family dynamic remains complicated.

And while it’s painful to be at odds with your siblings, it’s also important to remember that relationships can change and evolve over time. It may be worth seeking out therapy or mediation to try and work through any underlying issues that are contributing to the tension between you and your siblings. With time, effort, and patience, it’s possible to build stronger, healthier relationships with the people you love.

Valentines Evening

May Your love for me be
the scent of the evening sea

drifting in
through a quiet window

so I do not have to run
or chase or fall
… to feel You

all I have to do

Train to the Edge of the Moon

“All these bad experiences that we go through, they don’t just disappear. We carry them our whole life trying to forget, escaping in habits, addictions, hate, toxic relationships. But what we don’t know is that by doing so we let them stay alive. We water them like withered flowers and we hang onto them to justify our mistakes and failures.”
