Some time it is not that easy you can not turn away from the love you want from your own family a love that should have left in the first place it makes you start asking if it was you were the reason the don't love you...
I have been a foster mother. When children don't receive love or support from their birth parents, it can be very exciting to be embraced by a new family where they are loved. Then, as an adult, create their own loving family. Can't blame them. :)
LongTimeMother ........well said. you can be brought into a family that is loving and caring and learn to trust love and then take that with you when start your own family

your right you need to distance yourself. Depending on how bad this person is, you need to take a step back. Remember, if you are extremely stressed, and your own mental health is at stake, don't have anything to do with him. I know it's hard.

Sometimes, a short intervention to provide technical support by an international partner or by a neighbouring friend is a very good thing
Sri T (the mystic) says
Love of God grows as you mature in life. We become grateful for all his gifts, such as the beauty of creation and our family and friends even in bad time we should seek him for guidance
Derrick Bennett says
When it comes to motivating and pushing yourself, it's usually filled with cliché advice. Don't give up, Get over it or Always look on the bright side of things
Dorothy Cooper says
It's not about me it's just a question I was asking.
I agree with you motivation is an internal process that makes a person move toward a goal no matter what it is.

Rejection is terrible, no matter who is rejecting whom. When rejection comes from family it is a doubly bitter pill - these are the people who should be a main stay in your life, but sometime you just have to let go step back and live your life.
What are you referring your statement too.
To find your inner strength, you need to come to terms with who you are and learn how to value your unique contributions to the world but that's not easy and some people just can't handle rejection.
But would that feel the void of your family and love ones
LensMann99 Well said I agree with you I would also try but there are times when trying is not enough then what do you do being turned away when your trying is going to be a hurting experience each and every times.
I think people should stop anger and actually be nice to someone, no matter how mean they have become. You can become "one of the nicest people" you'll ever meet, but bear in mind that you are the only one who can make this significant change in you.
Hi Chef. Perhaps this question is only hypothetical for you. At any rate, if you can be nice in the face of hostility, that is truly remarkable. I'll stick with my calm clarification method. I can be calm, but not necessarily nice...
I can relate to your comment I just have a thick skin but I do not let anyone run over me believe that but to me talk is talk what does not kill me will only make me will only make me stronger.
Hi Chef, You're a good man, and I believe that you do not let people run over you. I agree that anger breeds more anger. Talk is good, but it comes to naught if the other party is in denial of their deliberate cruelty, but it helps with most people.
savvydating..Your right Intentional cruelty is often more shocking than neglect and is frequently an indicator of a serious human behavior problem for person to do something like tells me they need help..
Hi Chef, I've come to the same conclusion. Anyone who lacks empathy to that extent needs therapy, but they are also the least likely to seek help. "People of the Lie" by Dr. Peck discusses this problem.

Some time you just have to do just that and that's hard when your wanting hat fay love hat your longing for.
Unfortunately, negative people may not be concerned with the effect their behavior has on others; they simply want to get rid of their own uncomfortable feelings ...
Well that's your opinion but o one should et anyone walk all over you or take advantage of you some time you have to voice your feelings.
When friends become like family, they're framily. closer than close, they may know you better than your own family.

Believing that things happen to you puts you in the role of victim; then it’s easy to be negative because it’s convenient to give up that power so you must be strong with in your own self to move forward.
ANIL KUMAR UPADHYAY says
God has promised each and every one of us that we will face difficulties and The real test for us is how we deal with these trials. However difficult the hardships may be, God always helps the believers and intends good for them.
I believe everyone in your family plays a vital role in helping to build or reinforce Family Assets, and everyone benefits from a strong family but it takes more than just you it has to be a group effort .
Joanne M Olivieri says
I think being able to maintain oneself or itself without outside aid is something we all strive for but there are those who can no do that for one reason or another that were the support of family and or friend comes in to play.
