this evening my sister (with no children of her own and a husband who sits at home all day and plays video games while she serves in the Navy) went off on me about things that happened years ago and some that aren't even true but yet she has held a grudge about for years. ALL related to how I care for and Parent my children and the life I have chosen to live. They were said in a hateful judgmental way and as I said most weren't even justifiable claims. (for instance she claims I have mold and mushrooms growing in my house and the house that had mold and mushrooms growing in it we moved out of 3 years ago for that exact reason) anyway I have three children one with SPD (sensory processing dysfunction) and one with some health related issues due to being born a little to early due to me having toxemia. I struggle every single day to provide for them but I make sure they have food to eat every day and clean cute clothes to where They get their medicines when they need them and they go see the doctor when they need to. I have a wonderful husband who works so hard to make sure our children have these things. I know I'm not a bad mother and I know I am doing everything my children need yet I'm really hurt by all of these things and the fact that she's held on to these things and refuses to see how hard life is for me. She insists she knows better how to parent my children and how to run my life when she see's me and my children maybe once a year. I now the adult thing to do here is just to let it go and get over it. So why can't I? why can't I just let it go nothing she said was even true.
