After a really difficult thanksgiving, my mom just gave me permission, essentially, to cut off my sister. It has been a long time coming and it’s for the best for my mental health right now, but it still makes me sad.

I’m 35/M and my two older brothers are pieces of shit. I keep in touch but will never let them into my life. It makes me sad that I can’t be in their lives, but I’ll always be there for advice etc for them.

😔 is there any silver lining? This is my older sister and I’ve always wanted her to accept me, despite how awful she has been to me. I’m not in an emotional space to be able to take any more of her abuse so I’m just…trying to let go. She’s the number one reason I felt so lonely growing up

Sometimes that’s for the best.
