My Parents Don't Pay Attention To Me & Favor My Brother

There Is Hope For You

I'm a 16 year old girl and I feel my parents don't pay attention to me. Every time when I sit down next to them they say nothing or sometimes just a 'hi' then it goes silence.

Always when I go downstairs to go to my parents, my older brother comes too. They always talk to him and forget I'm there. When I walk away furious to my room, they blame me and get mad at me.

I already deal with depression, cutting myself, PTSD and suicidal thoughts. If I ask for something they say they will get my things but then when they come home they don’t have the items I asked for. But they have what my brother wants, every time.

I get so angry at my brother and parents that I just want to throw myself in front a car. I already talked about it with them many times, but when they say they will not do that again and pay attention to me, they only do it for less than a week.

Then they go back to their pattern of only paying attention to my brother again. I always cry myself asleep thinking, “Am I worth living? Do they love me? Am I too bothersome?”

I don't have friends that I can stay with or a boyfriend I can stay with. I just want to get out of this house ASAP.

I can't make money either because I'm afraid of people. So a job isn't going to work for me. I gave up on school too, because I got panic attacks again and again.

I'm confused and don't know what to do anymore. I'm just stuck in this horrible house.

What's Happening To You Is Wrong
by: Dr. DeFoore

Hello, and thanks for telling your story here. I think you are a victim of male favoritism. I have seen this happen in many families, where the male children are favored over the female children.

It actually has nothing to do with you, but I know it affects you deeply. It's actually a very big problem that happens all over the world, in families (like yours), in countries and in companies.

I'm telling you this so that hopefully you will know that you're not alone. Many girls and women all over the world are going through this type of discrimination and neglect.

I want to you to please stop hurting yourself, if you can. You may not realize it, but you're hurting yourself so that others can see the pain you're in, but it's not the best way to get what you're looking for.

I want you to believe in yourself. Watch this video over and over, and imagine that she is singing to you. She is...she's singing to you and others like you.

I've read your story. I believe in you. I think you will make it through this. I think you're exactly right about getting out of that house.

Meanwhile, until you do get out, do your best to practice self love. Just because your family is too blind to see your worth and value doesn't mean you have to be.

Reach way down deep inside, and you'll find a strong determination to create a good life for yourself. Make up your mind to do just that, and you will succeed.

My best to you,

Dr. DeFoore
