I Feel Like I Need To Cut My Hurtful Sister Out Of My Life – Daily Dilemma [AUDIO]
Today we had a pretty serious dilemma to deal with. I guess it falls in the category of toxic people we have in our lives. I think we all have them some are worse than others, and some are closer to us than others but there does come a time when you have to wonder if keeping the relationship is only hurting you and not even helping the other person anymore.
Here is what our listener wrote in:
"My Mom died when my sister and I were young. I am only a couple of years older than her, but I have always been a sort of "mom figure" for her and love her very much. The problem is, she has some serious behavioral issues, and is usually very hurtful to the people she is closest to. I have always been there for her no matter what (troubles in school, trouble with friends, even t...troubles with the law).
Here's the biggest part: she is the worst with me. She tries to sabotage every relationship I have usually by sleeping with my boyfriends and lying about me to my friends and co-workers to try and make me look bad. Yes, she is currently and has been in therapy. That is not my dilemma. My problem is I have met a guy I really love; I am finally seeing a future for myself and I want to be happy. I know I need to distance myself from her. All my friends tell me, I have to worry about me and stop helping my sister. I just don't know how to handle the guilt of cutting my own sister out of my life."
As always the callers had plenty to say about the issue, and I hope this girl finds some peace with the advice they gave.
