Our father passed away a few years ago and we have since been left with our mother. She is a manipulative narcissist. She cared very little about the kids' welfare even when my father was still alive but since his death, the situation has gotten worse. Months of having no food at home and no proper space for the kids to be in any state of peace. I do my part in contributing by feeding my siblings when I can.
Our mother is very negative and draining to be around. I want to help her deal with her demons but she refuses to work on herself and chooses to project her issues onto everyone else. We have all found our own coping mechanism with the cards we have been dealt but it gets overwhelming at times. The amount of stress and trauma this caused me as a child is difficult enough for me to deal with as an adult, I can't imagine its effects on my siblings with their age. I trust my siblings to eventually evolve through all these but I still want to guide them so we can help each other along the way since I admit I have some things to work on as well.
I am reaching out to people because we genuinely need help with eventually starting our own life maybe in a better home with a safer space for my siblings. Theyre not lost causes, they have hope. They are intelligent and compassionate little souls that need help developing into the best versions of themselves. I dont ask for us to be taken care of for the rest of our lives, I trust enough in them to know they will eventually make it. All we need is a headstart. An investment so we can start building ourselves, reaching our full potential, and making the change we want to be in the world. We dont want to add to society's burden, we want to change it for the better.
