Do I owe her my friendship? I realize I might have a little bit of bitterness, but I wonder if I am obligated in some way to keep up with my Step Mom. Dad died over 10 years ago. She always looked down her nose at me, was so superior acting, and was very snotty to me with her words. She and Dad went on trips and had all that they could want or need and more. They bragged about all this to me while I was struggling just to make ends meet and they would never offer to help me. They gave gifts at appropriate times but never any extra. Now she is destitute and in a nursing home. It is not even a nice one. But, that was all her doing by her choices and I had nothing to do with it. I sort of feel guilty for not writing or calling, but not much. I am sorry that her life turned out like it did but you should not judge ANYONE because the shoe can always fit on the other foot! I really don't feel obligated to talk to her anymore. What do you t.=hink? Thanks.
