Don't like being around family

Greetings,
 
I feel like something is wrong with me.  I don't enjoy hanging out with family members.  
 
I am a 31 year old male.  I recently was laid off from my job and moved back in with my parents to save money.  My sister has moved in with her husband and two children while their new house is being built.  I cannot stand her children.  One is 3 years old and the other is 1 year old.  The children are always crying and being loud. I can't get a normal nights sleep and it has made me have a feelings of resentment towards everyone in house.  The children cry about everything.  I understand that children cry and that children will be children.  I can't stand to be there but it is my only option right now.  
 
I have a twin brother who seems to get along fine with the rest of my family.  The children love to hang out with him.  I do not feel like my feelings are normal.  I feel like I should like to spend time with my family.  Maybe not spend time with them all the time but, some of the time.  
 
If anyone has any suggestions on how I could improve my feelings or attitude towards my family, please let me know.  
 
Thank you,
Michael

Michael,
 
I can only speak for myself but I think most people will agree that what you have described is normal for us humans - meaning that there is likely nothing wrong with you.
 
You might consider switch up your schedule so that you are not at the house as much. Find something social to do that will allow you to meet new people and network with them and at the same time maintain a budget for these activities. If you do not have a budget to work with make use of the free things that are around, such as libraries, church groups, and activities sponsored by your local city and state governments.
 
And, finally, there are alternatives to housing besides living with parents - you have to explore it to find it.
 
Good luck!

Sounds pretty normal to me man. Also, keep in mind that being laid off can trigger a small bout of depression. Irritability is a symptom of depression. Do your best to get  another job and move back out of the house. Maslow demands you satisfy your manly need of independence!

Hey,  
 
I know exactly how you feel. I'm 18 years old and I have hidden out in my room from my family since I was about 12 yrs old, thank GOD i moved out and moved 2 thousand miles away...
 
but no worries,
you're fine. sometimes i think i have issues too, but i realize we all have issues with our families and that is the way it always will be.  
 
no worries.

Bummer.  
 
Living with family can be tense at best.

I feel lost when I am alone but when I am with family I dont feel talking to them much now. I cant explain really how it works.
