I know my problems aren't the worst, and I am very thankful

I know my problems aren't the worst, and I am very thankful for that.
However, I really feel alone in life. There is no one I can trust anymore. I can't get along with my mother because I don't know what she wants from me. Every time I try to come closer to her, she makes the distance even larger because of her comments thinking that I'm complaining all the time. And once I tell her "why do you have bad thoughts about me?" she starts hitting her self and getting too angry. She always threatens me by saying "if anything happens to me, know that you are the reason.".. this has been going on since I was a child and now I am 24. She doesn't do the same to my brother and she treats him so differently even though he does worse to her than I do. This has affected my self-esteem and made me hate myself. Now when I started to heal from self-hate, she continues to do the same. I don't have many friends either because I'm an introvert and shy. At the same time I trust nobody, So, I don't have anyone to talk to.. I feel so lonley

Hello- Thank you for reaching out. I’m so sorry to hear that your relationship with your mother is not going well.

I have a friend who is going through the same experience and I can see that it’s not easy living each day without peace at home. I hope that someday you will have a good talk with her and will be able to settle things. Take care and I will be praying for you. Please stay strong. You are not alone.

@pink318 You are so nice! Thank you for your support and prayer! I really appreciate that!
I talked to her today, and I feel a little better now. I have come to realize that I need to focus on my own life more and maybe find some new friends in order to not feel lonely anymore.

@Blueeyes14 - I'm sorry to hear that you have a similar problem with your sister. Maybe keeping a distance from her would help? I mean to talk to her less?
