My past coming back
a year ago
I was abused verbally and at a very few rare occasions physically. I know my story isn't as bad as some on here but eh whatever. Well I'm only 17 but I've been on my own over 8 months. My parents have nothing to do with my life. (except for the fact I'm not emancipated so like I have 3rd party contact to get medical needs met) my sister called me today and I honestly don't know what to do. I don't speak to my father or his wife because of what happened, I don't talk to my mother or her wife because of what happened, but my sister talks to both. She doesn't think what my dad did was all that bad and she said and I quote "you can't hold a grudge forever get over it". Mind you I was diagnosed with PTSD from everything that happened. She has tried contacting me before to get me to talk to my parents. The voicemail she left today was her just asking how I was. I don't know if there is a second agenda or of she actually just wants to talk. I know I don't need to talk to her. But I just want my family to leave me alone. I don't want my past to come back. Even typing this my mind races with everything that's happened. Why won't my past go away? I am heavily considering changing my #. When I'm 18 I'm moving as far away as possible. Probably to the west coast. I just needed to rant. That's all.
Your sister is acting in a reasonable manner showing common sense and care. Take a good long hard look in the mirror and ask yourself would you make the same effort as your sister is doing to help someone? At least your parents have one good daughter who sounds lovely
