Default Family is causing anxiety and stress?

Hey guys! I am an 18 years old male, my father left us about 5 years ago, and as the only male in the house, I am responsible about somethings here, I am not sure how to put it, but my 2 sisters are causing me huge stress by the way they act and by the way they treat me, I have an older sister who is 21, and a younger one who is 12, I am more than sure that I will be fine away from them, but I don't want to be like my dad (even tho my sisters thinks they don't need me, I am more than sure they do).

Hey there,

I'm a teen and a guy myself, so I can relate to you a little somewhat. I have a brother -- but not sisters, haha.

It sounds like your sisters are stressing you out, and how they treat you -- it sounds like maybe they're not treating you fairly, or aren't respecting you? Without a father figure or another male in the house, it must be somewhat hard for you too.

It sounds like you're managing and helping out with most things around the house, that's very responsible of you and very mature of you -- so kudos to you for that haha. It also sounds like maybe things may not be so eh between you and your dad, that you don't want to be like him? It sounds like you want to be a better version, and that's great.

As far as your sisters, maybe you can try talking to them you know? I don't know what exactly you're having to manage or deal with all alone, but I mean, there are some things I'm going through myself too -- but we're all here to help and support each other. Are you still in high school/school? Maybe there's a counselor you can speak too? There's public resources as well to speak with counselors or what not if you're having some really tough moments and need to speak with someone for some help.

I hope things work out!
: )

Hey! I am a 19 year old girl and can emphasize with your situation as I have a lot of responsibility for my younger brother with absent parents. It's been a few months since you posted so I hope your situation has gotten better, but feel free to message me if you ever need to talk. :-)
