And so it carries on…

Saturday July 23, 2022

As you may or may not know, I’ve been caught in the middle of a family feud. Now, in the beginning I was having none of it and not willing to choose any side as it’s difficult.

However as time has gone by, my brother seems hell bent on destroying our parents, which I do not agree with. He is angry and that anger has just gone on and on and now even I feel uncomfortable around him and his home. I’m confused at the whole situation and I don’t agree that life is just black and white, yes or no etc. there are many grey areas. For the first time in a very long time I broke down in tears not understanding how it could get to this point. I have everything going for me right now yet my family is crumbling around me, to no fault of my own, but I also can’t let my brother make my parents life miserable, that is purely wrong! They are old and my dad is not particularly well (actually my dad didn’t even do anything) the only thing he did was support the woman he has been married to for many many years), so I guess my brother cut him off too… just like that! That behaviour doesn’t make any sense. He is fine with his immediate family, but I sense he doesn’t want know any of his family, which is fine, but he keeps threatening things to me about my parents which really upsets me.

I feel like he has this control over my parents which is utterly ridiculous and exhausting. I can’t take it anymore.

So now I have a new job and that has been stressful with everything else going around me. I don’t actually have any answers because we can’t sit down like a normal family and talk. So what should be a happier time for me, it’s actually the opposite.

Hope you all doing okay.
