Tough love time, baby. Quit taking everything those crazy people say to heart. I get that they're family but it is abundantly clear that they are either the most tactless people on the planet or they do not have your best interests at heart.
You know who has your best interests at heart? YOU DO! Keep thinking positively, keep writing, keep looking for a job, keep your mind open... In the words of my wise grandma, this too shall pass.
