Hello doctor,

I am a 23-year-old male, and I used to be close with my first cousin. Eventually, we developed feelings unknowingly, and we were in relation for about seven months, and now it has been a year since we separated. Now her mother, my aunt, got to know about it, and my aunt is so depressed and angry with me and says she would never want to see me again. But I am so close to her, and she is like a mother to me. I cannot really be without talking to her, and she told me she hates me and would never want to see me or talk to me. I am feeling terrible, and I feel like suiciding. So I need little help on how to make this situation somewhat better and let her talk to me. Please help me with this problem.

Thank you.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand that you are distressed at the moment, and your aunt is angry at you because she did not expect whatever to happen. When receiving something shocking, every individual goes through various stages ranging from shock to anger to gradual acceptance, but this process takes some time. She is taking her time to accept reality, so after some time, when you approach her, she will forgive you. Just do not hurry. Wait some time, then attempt to apologize to her after a few days or a month. I am sure after some time she will forgive you. If at the moment, these suicidal thoughts are strong, you should consult a psychiatrist offline at your local place. For any other concerns, you can also reach out to me. I would be happy to help you.
