I don’t have a family myself so when I meet them I thought I could have a good relationship with them .
Some of them are insensitive and make hurtful “jokes” to me and then act defensive. Most of them are abusive but no one says a thing because it’s a “joke”.
My MIL has several mental health issues and also a drug addiction which put us in danger in more than one occasion. She also has a boyfriend who sexually assaulted me one time.
Now the “good” part of the family is even not inviting me two their gatherings and I feel so left alone.
My partner was so abused by them that he can’t even speak up for himself.
Not having a family and also receiving this treat makes me feel like shit.
