Days like this, I wish in the middle of the work day, I could just leave and throw myself into a good sweat.

A certain family member has started up another "pity fiesta" for herself, when it's not that hard to realize she is the one who keeps this feud going by constantly posting every little poor me on Facebook. She's almost 35 years old ... and a "professional" business person. mmhmm ... ... ... Act Like IT!!

It is seriously taking me everything I have to NOT reciprocate her childish behavior. I'm not saying that I haven't done wrong in the past, but I at least took responsibility for stuff! Didn't make up stories, or blame everyone but myself for the way things were/are, or heck, I'm not living in the past and neither are the other 5 of us in our family!! ... This Thanksgiving, it will be a full year since I've had ANY contact with that family. Well except for when she left me ANOTHER (same contented) letter saying how "everyone has hurt her" ... on my doorstep - along with the christmas gifts that I got her kids ... Yes I know I should let it go, but I care. I'm human. She is not in a healthy state ... I just wish KARMA would catch up with her sooner rather than later.

    Thanks guys ... as much as I'd like to say there was an easy fix to this ... she has burned so many bridges, it's now up to her. ((this has been going on 5+ years, she is always bickering with someone in the family, singling them out, bullying, and then when she got what she needed, poof, it was someone else she'd be manipulating)) but as a family, we are just not feeding into her BS, and I honestly think that is what she wants, a reaction. So we all just sit. Trying out best to ignore her, but is she honestly trying to say she had NOTHING to do with her family not speaking to her...? I don't think so. She has called my mother and father names that no one who "loved" their parents would ever think of, the same for my siblings and I, spreading rumors, twisting the truth to make herself look like the victim ... My parents had the gastric by pass surgery, along with my oldest sister, told people that if it wasn't for her bullying her sister into it, she'd still be fat, and my mom forced my dad to do the surgery ... just the unthinkable, making any good thing in our lives about HER.

    My thoughts on the whole thing and her latest rants, is that the holidays are coming up... and it does hurt her that we are not all together. But instead, she is throwing out these insane "my family is horrible to me for no reason" lies, to make everything seem ok in her mind.

    Truly she needs help... and Facebook is no therapist. So if you can, this holiday season, say an extra prayer for her, and another for the rest of my family... that someday, she will take a long look in the mirror.
