FAMILY

by flyingbluesky95

Hi. Googling what I feel and suddenly found this blog. This is good. Perhaps it can be my safe place. Been searching for that for a while. I’m 26 y/o this year. In November 2018, I get into a huge fight with my parents and decide to run away from my house. At first, I stay at my friend’s house. But after considering too many things since I’m a female and my friend has a brother, I found a house to rent. So until Aildilfitri 2019, I finally came home. One of the reasons because my father has been calling me since my cousin dies in an accident. After that, CoVid happened. So sometimes I stay at my parents’ house and sometimes I stay at my rental house. Until this year, I decided to stay at my parents’ because they kinda ask me to stay with them and move to our new house. But little did I know, I regret my decision. My father keeps pushing me to get married, when I am single – have no boyfriend and have no interest to get married yet. And my mother – sometimes she would talk and some other times she would ignore me by having silent treatment. This reminds me why I run from my parents before, I want to run from this toxicity. After I finish my study in early January, I get a job in February with my friend’s help. After a few months, I keep coming home late because I work in the accounting department – “closing” time especially. My parents keep thinking that I spend my money with my friends when I am working overtime without being paid since I am a contract worker – trainee. They keep asking me for money which I didn’t give to them. Because I’ve been holding grudges to them – been eating Maggi every single day because I don’t have enough money to spend during my study. And now when I move back to my family, I change. I give them money and treat them to restaurants every month. But somehow I don’t think that’s enough. They keep comparing me. And saying things that hurts me. I can’t even share my problem with them. Every time I talk, they would argue with me – saying things like I’m stupid or I make a wrong decision. Which is sucks because I just need a shoulder to lean on. I don’t know what should I do anymore. I regret moving in. I should just stay there. Perhaps no one gonna understands why I am holding a grudge but yeah, family problem is complicated. I can’t ask anyone to understand since no one in my shoes. But I just want to let it out. Never tell this story to my friend because I don’t want to be claimed as a “anak derhaka” 🙂

Ah, haven’t seen another malaysian here. Then again I come here on and off, hope everything gets better. If you can live on your own and support yourself why not just leave right? stay strong.

Family is complicated, I’m sorry you are dealing with that. Sometimes it’s easy to take for granted what you have so close.

Ah that really sucks. My parents are abusive so I can kind-of relate. Rant as much as you want on this website, its the whole purpose of it!
