I don't really feel bad for not feeling bad....
Usually, when it comes to family that I am close to, if I can't help them, I feel a little bad. Depending on the circumstances.
For those who do not remember or heard the story, I will try and keep it short and to the point.
My sister is 15 and she has lived with me twice. The second time due to drugs on school property, cutting herself, suicide, etc. While my sister DOES have issues, she is also a brat. Her father would let her do whatever, whenever she wanted. She could be gone for days with whoever and he never cared. She got her way with most everything and never had to take responsibility for herself.
Well, this second time she moved in with me, I laid the law down and she was basically on lock down. I had to lock away anything sharp, she couldn't be by herself, etc. She was in intensive therapy and I loved one of her therapists, she was a no nonsense put your big girl panties on and take responsibility for your actions kinda therapist, it was great.
Well, usually all her issues were just centered around here, until she brought my two youngest into it, 5 and 4, she went to one of her teachers, telling them she wanted to "Choke Aiden and Piper until they died." Be for attention, because she knew it would get her out of my house or she was serious, I didn't care, she was out that night and not allowed back.
Fast forward through drama to yesterday. One of my oldests band mates (shes 16) came up and started asking me about my sister and if she was moving back in with me. This girl was also somewhat friends with my sister. I told he no, she wasn't allowed back into my home after what she said, I couldn't trust her and my own children come first. We talked a little more about it and according to her, my sister is saying she is going to be moving back down here and going back to their school. I don't know if this is true or not or if my sister is trying to cause trouble, honestly I don't really care.
On the way home, I was thinking about it. I realized that, I don't feel bad for not wanting to have contact with her right now. Nor do I feel bad for not feeling bad..usually I do.
This is normal....yes...lol
I don't think so.
My Grandfathr told me long ago; "Never let your happiness be dependent on the actions of others." So true.
Distance from disorder is a good policy to follow. You have your own children to raise and who need you to focus your resources on them.
