Now Available! Dr. DeFoore's New Book GOODFINDING
I'm 27 years old and I'm angry and emotional all the time. I have two children, a girl that's 9 and a boy that will be 5 soon. My grandmother has practically raised my daughter but my son has been with me since day one. I feel like my family is always disappointed in me and always talking about me. I feel very unlovable because of their actions.
I know their actions are the reactions from my anger over the years. I've been in an emotional abusive relationship for 3 years. The emotional abuse came from me and my partner. We have both seen other people while we were together. He was an alcoholic for the first two years of our relationship. I gave him everything. I did everything for him and always put me and my children last.
The last year of our relationship he changed his ways, but it was too late for me. I became a raging lunatic. I have no trust in him or really anyone for that matter. I'm always complaining about something. I feel lonely all the time and sometimes wish I could just disappear.
I know I have depression and major anger issues I just don't know what to do. Where to go from here. On top of all this I found out I have 5 brothers and a sister that I have never met from my biological father's side. I've only met my bio father twice in my life. I found out that bipolar disorder and schizophrenia run in his family.
I am scared and feel lost and want to better myself for my children and myself. I guess my question is...are there any websites for help with programs of some sort with live video chatting or emailing?
Response from Dr. DeFoore
Hello, and thanks for telling your story here. It is so good that you want to better yourself, for you and your children. I will try to help.
I think you're in a stage of grieving and letting go--of old dysfunctional relationship patterns. You said it so clearly when you said, "I gave him everything. I did everything for him and always put me and my children last." That will never work. Many people think that's love, but it's not.
You asked about video chatting and emailing for help. I offer telephone and Skype video counseling, at the rate of $175 for a 50 minute session. I also offer email counseling/coaching at the rate of $3 a minute that I spend reading and responding to your emails. Contact us if you would like to pursue this, or have further questions.
I also suggest you get a copy of these self esteem CDs. This will definitely help you with your healing process.
Believe in yourself, and make up your mind you're going to create a wonderful life for you and your children.
My very best to you,
