I know its normal to have a certain amount of family drama and stress thats just apart of the deal with family right?
But for me right now there is just always something going on in my family and its never little and I am always the one who has to solve the problems, pick everyone up and keep us going as a family but I am sick of it. I am sick of being the saviour of the family, I am sick of carrying all of their problems and fixing their lives.

I just want to leave, I want to get on a plane and fly far far away and never return. Maybe then I will get some peace, maybe then I will be able to live my life.

I mean when do you say enough is enough, when is it ok for you to say no?

ok dont get me wrong, I love my family I really do, they are great but there just comes a time when I cant solve everything all the time, I am 26 years old I should be starting to live my own life not carrying three other peoples. Especially when it comes to my younger sister, she is becoming a real burden to me and I feel so responsible for her and I know I shouldnt but I just have been my whole life but I cant do it anymore. The pressure of that is killing me.

What do I do guys, this is tearing me up inside, what do I do?

I am in the same boat, my family is bringing me down so much and they don't even see it. I pushed them away for awhile and was sooo much happier, but now they are coming back and saying it is all my fault and I am a horrible person. I would say to stop trying to fix everything for them, and just let them be responsible for themselves. Make the best of your life and you will be so much happier, trust me.
