Do you think it's better to tell someone that was close to you the truth about why you are distant with them now? Or..
leave the past in the past & continue to have nothing to with them?.. I haven't spoken to my stepmother for over a year. My Dad passed away 5yrs ago & for a long time afterward I tried really hard to keep my stepmum in my life. However, I lived with my father & stepmother from ages 12-16 & there is quite a few things that my stepmum did to myself & my fathers relationship that I'm having a lot of trouble letting go. There was also a lot of selfishness & general trouble after my father died, related to his funeral & financial issues (the money matters are not really what it's about though) Anyway, I have received around 5 txt msgs from her in the last year,one of which was asking what the issue is? Do I put it all out there? Years of frustrations & issues & hurt her? Or, is it best to just leave it alone?.. Thanks for the help guys :)
