blown away   Leave a comment

my eldest sister sent me a letter last week saying I was cold, unfriendly bitter and over all not a very nice person.

It hurt my feelings greatly.

Still hurts if you want to know the truth.

I have two siblings and a niece that tell me I need to forgive Carolyn and what she said.

It isn’t about forgiveness.

she said what she thought.

I don’t hold that against her.
Why I do feel is hurt.

This name calling came out of the blue.

Not once in the last 40 years has anyone ever told me I was a cold unfriendly bitter heartless person.
I am not that way.

But because I don’t put forth the effort to spend more time with her and our siblings……I am perceived that way.

Just blows my mind.

even now a week later it still blows my mind.

I talked to my niece today, (My sister’s daughter) and she said her mother didn’t mean to come across that way.

Well regardless of what she meant, anyone calling anyone a cold bitter unfriendly heartless person isn’t going to get a hug and warm smiles from the person being accused of these unflattering words.

They say time heals all wounds.

And I believe it.
But it is going to be a while before I have anything to say to my eldest sister.
