There is a fine line between keeping a lid on the over the top drama, and being able to express yourself to a comfortable extent.
It is hard for me to hear that you are just keeping it all inside to make everyone else happy.:( On the other hand, if you were letting everything out at an explosive level to everyone, all of the time, then...maybe things needed to be reined in a bit? I am not in your situation, so I don't know.
What I can say however, is that you need to find a way to be happy, while constructively letting your feelings out, and you need to feel validated and wanted in your relationship.
I am so glad that you are going to see a therapist. I think that this will give you some good idea of the direction that you need to go.
I hope that it is a positive experience for you, and that you learn a lot about yourself and what you can do to be happy in your situation.
Let us know how it goes and keep posting with us. We are here to listen and support!
Best wishes and lots of encouragement.:)
