For years, over and over this family member has hurt me. even though the years of my continuous help I given to this unappreciative person. I'm looked at as the bad one. because, I'm tired and I decide I'm not taking it anymore and not speak. their crying hurt, I'm wrong...wrong, I don't think so. like I said the years of my continuous help..not one time this person help me to help their futures. I made straight lines for this person futures. and in return they try to turn their futures upside down.they already dim one future.the one light I have left, I want to beam. I was told I was wrong for not speaking. but, everytime I let them back into my life is a thunderstorm.

You must vent out all your frustrations otherwise you'll forever be keeping this emotions to yourself, which is not healthy. Try to talk to this person, organize a time when you can explain to him/her exactly what your plans are, and let him/her understand your side. If there's no other way, then let it go. you must not suffer just because of that person.

You have a right to your feelings so don't let this person or anyone else make you feel guilty. If you've tried to help this person and have been made to feel taken advantage of or unappreciated then you should stop helping. The assistance of someone else, family or not, is not a guarantee in life.
