I think my grandma is picking on me..in a bad way

Thursday, November 03, 2011

This is going to be a very odd blog post but I think its true. Lately my grandma has sort of been picking on me..Not as in hahaha but she is meaning to be mean. Today my nephew came over to borrow some money for his college tuition. He asked me to go see my grandma with him to see if he could get some money off of her. Well while my nephew was talking to her my cell phone rings to alert me about a text. My grandma makes some odd comment about there is no reason to check it because we all know I dont have a girlfriend and never will have one. I didnt say nothing to her but when I got home I started to think about it. She must think very low of me. She has always said negative comments to me or about me to other people but today's comment really got me. When my dad passed away I remember her telling her side of the family that I killed my dad. He died from lung cancer but her explanation of his death is that he never would have taken the second round of them chemo. She believes the second round of chemo killed him. She then told the family that I killed him by forcing him to take it.

    Wow, grandma is a seriously negative person. You don't deserve such treatment. No one does. I have some people in my family that are just like this...including my mom, and she grew up in a very negative environment as well. People like this are bitter and trapped in their own unhappiness, it has nothing to do with you.

    I just do my best to distance myself from that kind of negativity, and if I have to be around it just let it roll off. If I can I even try to laugh and comment on the negative comments if I know it will leave them stunned and shut them up.

    Stay positive no matter what, smile everyday, enjoy the little things and you'll receive joy in return. That's how you live life!

    Grandma needs to chill! And you need to stay calm, cool and firmly tell her when she's picking on you that you have to leave now because you don't want to be around her when she picks on you.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm wondering if she needs to lose weight and might be jealous of your success? emoticon

    When people seem mean, I always say the same thing, mean people are unhappy with themselves. I'm sure your grandma is unhappy with herself in some way. Chose to have what relationship you will with her- without regrets. However, I think I wouldn't sacrifice my happiness for the sake of someone else. Consider what you really feel inside. Follow your heart.

    It's hard to have to deal with mean people, especially when they are your family. You did not kill your dad, I'm sure you know that and I'm sure she does too. Some people just handle their pain by lashing out at/ being mean to others. Ignore her as best you can.

    You are worth it (no matter what your "it" is)!!

    First of all CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss journey - you've achieved so much and done so well! You are an inspiration to me.

    Umm, really not sure what to say about your grandma that will sound polite. She seriously sounds like a really nasty old biddy. I can honestly see no reason at all why you 'will never have a girlfriend' that's utter nonsense in my opinion.

    As for the chemo comment and you 'killing' your dad ... I can't go there politely. Suffice to say you didn't kill your dad and I am sure you are sensible enough to really know that. I'm sorry she's so messed up.

    Keep on sparking emoticon
