If we had been just friends, and you did what you did, we would no longer be friends.  I would have cut my tied, and written you off, for good.  However, because we’re family, blood, I’m supposed to just forgive you so things can “get back to the way they were”.  Really?


Mummy wants meet with a mediator (all suggestions so far her friends, as if) so things can get back to “the way they were”  I feel we have nothing to discuss, things cannot just go back.  You either take what I have given you as far as access and information, or you don’t.

Discuss please.

Any input is appreciated, even if you tell me I’m an idiot.  I’m using the Internet as my therapist.  It seem silly to keep one on retainer for when she emails.. or maybe not.  She emails more than I care for.

    I have no advice for you. That’s a hard spot to be in. Good luck.

    Keep your distance & your boundaries. It’s so easy to get sucked back in to family drama! Hang in there & best of luck in what sounds like a very difficult situation.

    Hrm…no advice, really, but plenty of sympathy. My brother and I had a falling out and I have (as of yet) not been able to bring myself to forgive his behavior. Same thing- if he wasn’t family, I’d have just moved on and never looked back. However, my parents pressure me to go back to how things were and talk to him and let him into my kids life but…I can’t forget what he did. Not yet anyway. It sucks.

    So yeah, no advice but I feel ya.

    You shouldn’t have to do something you don’t want to do for the sake of family. However I think the fact that the argument means something to you might mean there is some part of you that isn’t quite ready to walk away either. So it is a tough balance. Good luck!
