Estranged from family

Good evening Brooke,

You wrote such a sad post on Xmas Eve.  I'm sorry for your many levels of emotional, and profound pain. I would also like to offer my condolences on the lost of your step dad. 

Without sounding too dismissive, remember that you made a decision to distance yourself in March. Usually, moves to stop talking are for mental protection. Concentrate on you and your family right now. Get some grief counseling that is specifically for traumatic deaths, and the after maths of suicide. Your brain and heart has been deeply injured and you  need time for you. Pray for your  nuclear family and try to show strength for the family you live with. God will pull you through and guide you toward happier times.

My husband hasnt talked to his parents in 8 years. I stopped talking to my mom and only sister March 2017. The reason with my mom is because my stepfather left her (lots of issues) one she is an alcoholic and she was mentally abusing him. I tried to get her help (my sister enables her) but anyway my stepfather who I absolutely adored and raised me, took his own life this past July. My mom nor sister care to reach out to my family at all. Not even after my stepfather passing. All they cared was what they got from him and cutting my family out. Now its the holidays and they just celebrate like they dont have any other family. Im so upset.
