Blinded by vanity and greed.
Boy oh boy...family:( I am one of 5 daughters. My parents are both gone now. I have a strained relationship with my eldest sister and her daughter...BUT...I have NO relationship what so ever with the 2nd and 5th born. The 3rd sister I just don't deal with because she is emotionally and mentally unstable and blames everyone for her problems. She is now in a nursing home. Here is the problem...there was a fight a few years ago because of something #2 and the 5th sister did. I was furious and a fight ensued. I left and they had a restraining order put against me that forbade me to see my mother who was in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. This lasted for 2 years. I had to schedule an appt if I wanted to see my mom. I stayed away but called as often as I could but they would listen in on the calls. When my mom went into the nursing home they did not stop me from seeing her but we rarely spoke to each other if we were all there at the same time. When my mom passed, #2 sister made herself executor over her will and all possessions in the house...that included the house. After my mom's funeral #5 sister helped me with some car repairs. I apologized to her for what happened and have readily ever since admitted my fault. It was cool with her. #2 sister along with #5 took the house, the car, the money and everything else...locked down the house(that I grew up in)like a fortress and NO ONE is allowed in. They have ALL of the family photos...except for a few that #3 sister(mentally unstable) stole from my mom while she was alive. They isolated themselves from EVERYONE and only communicate to those that believe their lies and they can manipulate. Well now since #3 sister is in a nursing home...#1sister(eldest) has gone to her house and took the rest of the pictures. Some of them are of mom and dad when they were very young. She even has a pic of me and REFUSES to share any of them!!! I have 1 tiny little pic of my parents....that I had to pry out of her hands!!! All of them have family pics and I have none. My niece talks to me so disrespectfully I just want to slap her. She NEVER calls me unless she wants something. I go out of my way to help and her and HER girls because she is a struggling single mom and she treats me like a doormat. I am so disgusted, disappointed, angry, bitter, hurt and fed up with the ENTIRE family that just to say the word FAMILY sticks in my throat and causes nausea. They are so OBLIVIOUS to their actions and selfishness I don't know how to count them all. I truly wish I could just wake up one day and they would all be gone. I don't wish any of them any ill will though. GODS REVENGE WILL BE SWEETER AND MORE DEVASTATING than any thing I could come up with. I could continue to elaborate but I think a book would be better:)
