Ok who would really be ok with that?
I am single mom of a 3yr old living on my own. I graduated college witha bachelors in accounting making a decent amount of money. My parents are always telling me I'm broke and poor and struggling..which I am not! They compare me to my cousin who is 26 (same age as me) that she has money because she lives at home and I don't. This morning as every morning she calls then starts saying how sorry she is for me because I'm so broke. Then she says 'why don't you like it when people say your broke with no money" I said I don't like it because its putting me DOWN!! My home is very nice, completlyy furnished (she has yet to come to my home) my daughter has everything and more and we are far from broke and struggling.. It makes me sick! I remember growing up being told that I will never amount to anything and will just be an embarrasment. This hurts! Mostly because she's my mom.
My sister wants to come visit for school break(they live in a differennt state) I told her I would pay half her ticket (which was 400) and ask my father to put the other half. When she called and told him he replied by saying your sister never havs money there's no way she can afford to buy partial ticket for you because she's so broke.. I was pissed whn I heard that and said forget it and I just bought the whole ticket for her. I want to go visit them and told my mom and she was like you'll never be abel to afford to come because you have no money and people with money are the ones that can travel.. Mind you I moved out of state since 2009 and I made several trips to see them with my child.. I'm so done with them putting me down.. They talk to others about me putting me down that my whole family puts me down..
How do I deal? I'm just feel like limiting communication with them.. Am I wrong? And I being too sensitive?
