Enough is enough...sometimes your family is not who you're related to.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

During this time while i'm dealing with the death of my father, My half sister has caused me nothing but grief and my mother as well. My sister likes to pretend she's an only child and my mother just keeps complaining about how she's not in the will. My parents divorced when I was 4. She just keeps saying I put up with him for 15 years, he beat me and abused me and I don't get anything? I just keep saying mom, seriously this is not about you one bit.

My Sweeties family in the meantime has been the family everyone would expect during a time like this. They are all loving and willing to do anything and support me at this time. i have really come to consider his family my own at this point. I know i'm blessed to have them.

i have truly learned that sometimes your true family is not who your related to. you can in fact choose your family.

    I am so glad that you are receiving the love and care you need as you go through this tough time. I hope that your half sister and mother can iron out their negativity; in the mean time, spend more time with the people who are positive and supportive.

    Unfortunately death does crazy things to family. So happy you have another family to all your own and support you. Keep your shoulders square and your objectives clear, you will make it. Many hugs.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    So sorry for your loss, but glad that you have an adopted family to be there for you and support you.

    My parents were married for 56 years, but when my father died my sister acted like she was the grieving widow (my mother was still alive). She took his wedding ring, watch, car, and several other "mementos", including the sign-in book from the funeral. We had a heck of a time getting them back from her. She caused my mother so much added grief that I essentially cut her out of my life once my mother passed away. She tried another land grab then, but fortunately my brother and I had already thought ahead and got the meaningful items out of the house so they could be split amongst all the siblings. Rather than being a time to support each other, funerals seem to bring out the worst in people.

    I so hear you on this. My parents both passed in 2002, one month apart. I haven't spoke to my brothers or sister since their funerals, bc after my parents passed they caused me and my sons the worst grief, they were nothing but greedy money loving butts. I choose not to have them in my life bc of this and the way they treated my parents when they were alive.
