About 11 yrs ago my Sister said something to me that I have never forgotten. Since then we haven't had any kind of relationship.
In 2001, I had an abortion. I'm not going into detail as to why, or what the circumstances were, I will just say my life was in a horrible place. I was 28 yrs old, and my family was very upset with me. Hell, I was upset with me....
My Sister was very upset with me, and while my 6 yr old son (at the time) was standing beside me, she said these words: "You're a murderer". I immediately sent my son into the other room, and told her to leave. I didn't argue with her, I just wanted her away from my son. I agree she has a right to her opinion, but I don't agree that she should have said that in front of my son, and her nephew.
In 2005 our Father died, and that was the last time I saw her.
Since then I have made it a priority to focus on my children, and my Husband, and live the best life I can for me, and all of them.
(If it matters, she lost custody of her son in 2000 because of alleged drug use.)
So fast forward to now. I got an invitation for a party for her son (he's 18). I've not seen him for yrs, he probably won't even remember me.... I don't know if we should go. In my heart I really don't want to. What would you do?
