too late

by curt

I'll keep this short. I was close with my younger sister through childhood. In adulthood we had some problems (family issues) and stopped speaking. I always knew that either she or I would reach out and get this resolved and if she didnt, I was going to. Well, she died suddenly. I have not yet gotten over this, not because she is gone, but because I didnt fix things first. She died thinking I hate her. Live with that for a while.

Thanks for the comments. Sometimes I think its not so much guilt as much as constantly kicking myself for letting things go on. I just always feel like I have unfinished business with her now and now I can't finish it. ihope if others have problems with siblings then GET OVER IT!

Curt, I'm so sorry for your loss of your sister. Your letter may help others who keep putting off setting things right with family members. I'll bet deep down she knew you loved her . Pride is a sad thing at times. A lot of us carry some guilt when a loved one passes. We think "if only we did this or that that they would still be alive.
In the end things happen they way they did and little do we know that we weren't in control of everything. All we can do is ask God for forgiveness for the things we are truy sorry for . He will forgive you and then don't take it back. Give it to God and then let it go.

God bless you as you try to heal from this loss.
