I have been in hiding for over a year now. My once sunny -side up silver lining to everything life hands me personality now lives in an alternate universe far away. I deal with my husband, my children, and my clients, but outside of that I just can’t get it together.
This absence has awakened for some unknown reason the inner stalker in my husband’s former stepsister. A masterful liar with an intense greed, who for some unknown reason seems to require faking a loving relationship with my inner family. Mr G-uno has asked me to not speak my truth with her, and this request is quite literally sucking out some of my life force.
This was a person I once trusted who has lied, and stolen from our side of the family. I have been content to stay completely away from her. I have no desire to know her anymore. This seems to have caused some glitch in her brain, She now tries to invite me to holidays, birthdays, and shows up almost every time I go somewhere. I was working from home with the lovely Ms Lee when I heard someone knocking on my back door.
There she stood with a thank you card from her mother as her excuse to stop by in the middle of a work day. I stepped out the door asked her if everything was okay, and she began blathering away about this thank you card. I told her it wasn’t necessary to give a thank you card while she tried her best to look around inside our home through the crack of the opened door. She proceeded to blather on about renovations, so I told her I was working. I thanked her for the card abruptly turned around, and went back inside closing the door behind me.
Mr G-uno felt like there could have been a number of ways to have handled this drive by ambush more appropriately. I explained that I’m under no obligation to fake a relationship with this woman, pointing out that I had kept my promise to him by not saying the things I desperately want to say to her. I just can not fake liking someone when I don’t genuinely like them. He contends that I can, but that I won’t, so after much thought the bottom line is that I won’t.
