theotherone4 Posted June 6, 2019 Share Posted June 6, 2019 I feel so self-centered and foolish admitting this. But I feel as if I have no one to talk to because I feel no one around me understands the emotional turmoil I’m feeling. For four years, I’ve had the wonderful privilege of being the only girlfriend in a wonderful family. My boyfriend’s mom, dad, and brother have all shown me so much kindness and love. It was the closest thing to a normal family I’ve ever had. My parents split up when I was a kid, and we’ve never really shown affection. In addition, my more attractive and more resourceful younger sister is the preferred one. I’m most often the black sheep. With my boyfriend’s family though, I feel so loved and accepted. Recently, my boyfriend’s younger brother got himself a new girlfriend. Though I genuinely believe she is kind and possesses good feelings toward me, I can’t help the anxiety that I’m going to be replaced. In the past, I’ve been the replaced one in many friendships. I feel so selfish for being so insecure about my relationship with my boyfriend’s family. I regard them not only as a second family but as some of my greatest friends. I feel like I’m scared that I’m going to lose my relationship with them or that everything will change. I’ve shed many tears over this, and I just need someone’s advice about to this. Am I crazy and selfish? Probably. But I really just love his family and the close relationship we have. Thank you for your time. Link to comment
