Hey there,
I‘m wondering if I should see a psychologist. Maybe you can help.

I don’t have a Good relationship to my parents. I don’t like my father and actually I’m afraid of him sometimes (it’s not really rational like in situations when he moves fast or hugs me) I did get hit wenn I was younger quite hard sometimes and screaming and insults were a daily occurrence. My father has depression and he is sad that I am distant and sais it’s my fAt the moment I live with my boyfriend. I moved out of my parents house a year ago.
Im okay I can go about my life and everything but I do get angry really easy and my boyfriend sais I interprete everything he sais as an attack. I get really angry at myself sometimes I think about killing myself on a daily basis. It’s not something I would really do because I do want to live but it sometimes just feels like the only way I can let out the anger I have against things I did in the past and things I do now. Accasionally when my parents get angry at me I self harm. I haven’t in quite a while even though I do have the urge sometimes but I can control it.

Sometimes I have bad dreams where I kill myself infront of my entire family and they laugh. Or relive the moment where I was told I destroyed my parents life.

All in all I do feel loved by the people around me, even my parents. They give me enough money and help when I need it. I feel silly thinking I should maybe see a psychologist especially since I can go about my life without any major problems.

Thank you and sorry for venting so much :)

Yes, I think seeing someone for this is definitely a good idea.
You're not going about your life without any major problems like you say. Wanting to kill yourself IS a major problem.

Thank you but the thing is I know I’m not actually going to do it it’s just the thought

You should go to a psychologist, anyone can go to get a bit of help. You thoughts aren’t good and talking with a psychologist. So in your case a psychologist can give you a lot of help and support 😊

I think maybe a counselor or therapist would help you. You don’t have to have a PhD in Psychology to be a therapist. Social Workers and those with other advanced degrees can be therapists too. I might try a bit of time with a counselor just to see if it helps with anything. He/she might be able to help you with coping skills to manage the pressures of life some. xo, j
