I had posted last month that my adult daughter, who will be twenty in a couple of weeks, was living in a wonderful place having everything paid for her plus tution and she was wretched disrespectful and didnt want to follow the rules.She enjoyed all the freedoms of an adult but none of the reality. In my first post, I hadnt kept it brief but I am ill. Im on chemo and I "technically" terminal. Part of the reason why this disrespect and unbalance had arisen.
Many of you were so supportive during my original post. I heard from parents, step parents, sibs, and even the kids themselves who were that age and behaved that way at the time. However, once paying their own bills they had a better appreciating for what they had. (Those were really helpful).All of you were so supportive and made me realize that I had done my job and that I deserved better for what I was giving. Even a couple of people who told me I should have never let it get that bad, while I didnt like to read it, it was true.
Your comments gave me the power to take back my own home, inspite of the fact I'm ill. One person even commented Ann Landers, we let folks take advantage of us. Please, assure me that I have done the right thing. I didnt grow up with all of these wonderful things we gave her, nor my tuition paid for....that I didnt slight her or do anything wrong. My heart just hurts so bad right now. Will that hurt heal? Now that she is out....what do I tell people?
