My sister broke my heart
I introduced my sister to my best friends son. they were eventually married. after the marriage she and her new husband became jealous of me and my husband. We are more finacially well to do than they are. Also they made it clear that they both hated that I was so close with the mother/mother in law ( my best friend) they worked hard to make her chose between me and them. they announced that if we were invited to family events they wouldnt come. consequently we were excluded. They have a baby and toddler, i am not allowed to see. I tried everything to reconcile with them. Gifts, cards, visits, offering to care for their child. they constantly make up reasons for their actions, imagined slights etc. They behave hatefully but if I show any sign of emotion they begin accusing me of all manner of evil.
needless to say their relationship isn't a good one, unfortunately most of the family is caught up in the BS and feels very sorry for them, in the last 3 years I have lost my relationship with my best friend and my mother.
Help! they are so self destructive and destructive to everyone around them!
I feel like I am going crazy.
I have since discovered that my sister is a closet alcoholic and that does help explain some of the bizzare behavior.
I sought counseling and my counselor tells me I am suffering from trauma. Life as I knew it is gone, the depression and grief are overwhelming. I have given up trying to reconcile with them. They still constantly try to provoke me I try to turn a deaf ear but I admit it does hurt inside.
I feel like I am living in a nightmare, how do i recover?
