Top 7 Signs Your Family Doesn’t Care About You
1. They Never Ask For Your Opinion
A family that makes deep decisions without your opinion is toxic. At least we know that some decisions are made by the husband and wife. But if the decision requires the presence of the kids, and you’re not being informed, it means that no one cares about you. The only way they may want to compensate you with the info is by surprising you with the update.
2. They Don’t Call You
Love is an action word!! It’s a word that is meant to be proven. If you truly love someone you would always want to hear from the person’s voice. If you noticed nobody calls, except you do, it shows that they don’t care about you. A family that truly cares about can stay a whole month without calling you at least once without checking on you.
3. They Constantly Criticize
If your family criticizes you constructively then it would help you to grow, but not constant and excessive criticism. A family that truly cares about you would always want to help you out in correcting the wrong you do. When your family always finds fault in whatever you do, it may be a sign that they don’t care about you.
4. Nobody Likes To See You Visit
Family members are supposed to find Joy with each other. But if you noticed their sadness or indifference when you visit, it is a sign that they don’t care about you.
I remembered when I was at University. Anytime, I want to come home, my mom will always ask me; Son, what are you going to eat? I’ll reply, my favorite.
Anytime, I’m coming back from the university, it’s always as if there is a ceremony at home. I’m always filled with Joy going home. That’s how it’s supposed to be when you get home. But when you get home and it seems as if your presence doesn’t count, it could be that they don’t like you at all.
Your family is supposed to be the closest people to you, showing concern for all your life actions. If they care they will support your dream and vision.
A toxic family will always act like “do whatever you like, they like they don’t care!”. They should even be the ones disturbing you and making sure they see you following your dreams and goals.

When you do something to help out and nobody cares, not to talk of appreciating you even if it is little.
If nobody appreciates you, a good family must will, which means they care! But if not, it means your family doesn’t care about you.
We all know appreciation boosts confidence and self-esteem. If your family always put you down, battering your self-esteem without any appreciation. It means they don’t care.

If something bad happens at home, the first thing is to check and access the situation properly before blaming anyone. If you noticed that whenever something happens, you are always received the blame. Even, when it is apparent you are innocent, it could be a sign that your family no longer cares about you.
