Just need someone to talk to

I hope this is ok to post here as i dont really have anyone close besides my bf to talk to.

Ok, when I was younger, my birth mother gave me up so my dad's parents raised me, i started seeing my birth mother and her parents then my birth mother tried forcing me to live with her so i told her to go away and never come back.
well when i turned 18, it had been 8years since i last seen my birth mother and my brother and sister. i slowly got back in contact with them and started seeing them again. it seemed different better. i moved to my dad's but his wife and i dont get along and soon i was asked to move out, so i moved into my birth mothers place and started working for her in her business. then she left her husband moved in with her new boyfriend and left me at the other house and told me to pay for all the bills and rent etc, so i was trying to figure everything out when my current bf and i broke up and i needed a break so was going to go see an old friend for a couple of days then come back but my birth mother asked for the house keys back and kicked me out, knowing i had no where to go, my bf and i got back together and i moved in with him, i tried talking to my birth mother but she now doesnt want anything to do with me. and i now think i was just wasting my time even getting to know her again. am i wrong to think this?

im sorry, i just needed someone other than my bf to talk to.

Sorry that you are going through this. Based off what you said alone (and there are always two sides to a story) it seems that you family are all very self centered.

It really sounds like you need to just focus on you right now, and worry about your relationships with them later once you are stable.

It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to start making a back up plan for yourself, as it sounds like things have been rocky with your b/f too.

Mistaken, I do not have any sage advice to give you other than to say try not to let these things pull you down. Know that you are not the first (and won`t be the last) person to find themselves in uncomfortable and sometimes painful situations like this - it`s all part of growing up, developing independence and finding your place in the world that everyone of us goes through in some form or other. I feel AlexS had some good thoughts and ideas to keep you moving forward. I wish you well and take care.

Yeah things have been rocky with my bf but we are really good now. He has been amazing to let me into his house and his family and look after me. The hardest part is my birth mother lives just around the corner from me with her new boyfriend and as far as i know she hasnt left her husband like divorced him yet.

well you r mother has repeatedly shown herself to be un trustworthy. Be cordial and polite, but dont allow your self to be in a position where you have to trust her or depend on her. She will let you down. Also dont let her make her problems your problem. You probably just need to distance yourself. Living with an on again off again boyfriend isnt too good either. Where are the parents that raised you. Probably where you need to head until you have some job skills and can support yourself.
