Sometimes in life we have to deal with difficult and times and difficult decisions. Sometimes those decisions… well can be life changing. Everyone has people in their life that cause issues, and a lot of time you deal with it or toss them and move on. What if one of those people happens to be a family member, or members. What if it’s your mother. What then? Do you continue to deal with the verbal and emotional abusive tear down you have your whole life?
This so far has been the year for nasty messages, letters, and emails to suddenly appear in my sight. I was upset at the first email I received several months back that ended a long friendship, making me question if our friendship was ever really a friendship at all. It was very clear in the end that they knew nothing about me what-so-ever. So to elevate some of the stress and negativity in my life I deemed her nasty email wasn’t worth a response.
Now I have been thrown another nasty curve ball. This time by a close personal family member. This though is slightly tougher. I have been dealing with this all my life… with several others who can attest to it. Commenting on the ins and outs of my life like they know everything I do. Having no place to do so since they go off galivanting around the state or country. Assuming that one side of a “story” is the only side. They can’t seem to keep their mouth shut… and think that their opinion is the only one. No matter what I do in my life it is never good enough. No matter how hard I work. In their eyes I am always not good enough, a liar, selfish, freeloader, and many other things including cold hearted.
So where do I go from here? What choice do I have but to cut them off or completely distance myself from them? Continue cutting out the negativity from my life… Sir and I’s life. The harder we work towards the life we want to lead, and where we want to live the more these negative destructive people pop up… This one in particular, just more so. I’m left with a hard choice, a major decision, and a life changing outcome.
