How do you feel about cutting off ties with family?
I'm sure we all have those family members who are so far out you can't even stand them but because they're family, maybe you feel like you "have" to deal with them. Well, as I'm growing and learning more about myself, I'm realizing that just because they're family doesn't mean they are allowed to make me feel every kind of way that's negative! I have a cousin who is 1 year older than me and we've always been like sisters but as we got older, my life went in a different direction than hers. I left home at around 21 and went into the Navy because I was tired of partying all the time and not doing anything with my life. Well, here we are 33 and 34 years old and, she still lives at home with her grandmother and her son, working a job she hates, dealing with men who treat her like shit.To make a really long story short, everytime I have a problem and need some advice or just support, she tells me I'm being a baby and a punk and to get over it but whenever she needs this in return, I'm all in for her. I give the best advice I could possibly give and I always give her support no matter what the situation is. I just feel like I don't need the negativity from her in my life or around my children but I keep feeling bad about cutting all ties with her but then I happen to go on facebook this morning and notice that she has "unfriended" me lol. So I guess it's not hard for her to cut off ties with me. Maybe she did me a favor!?
Anyway,,,I just felt like sharing my feelings this morning. More like a vent I guess. Thanks for reading :)
