My younger sister is 14 years old, just started high school this year. There’s a 12 year age gap between us.
A lot of times i have backtrack to when i was 14 to kind if put myself in her shoes we talk about boys, drugs, smoking, the like. Its weird because i just see her as a child, but i remember when i was 14, i still felt “old enough” because i was only 2 years away from 16.
Being at my moms this month (sober) is really eye opening because my mom just clearly does not know how to fix relationships. She is cruel, never says sorry, acts like a child. She has the attitude of “well since you did this to me im going to do it back to you, see how that feels!”
That NEVER works! I used to do the same thing as a kid, and it never resulted in anything good. No results except for deteriorating relationships. My mom might be 50 but she really acts like a child sometimes.
So with that being said, she cannot keep treating my little sister in a child like manner in the way she does, because my sister is starting to really not care. When you stop caring, you have lost respect for that person, there doesn’t seem to be a need for any sorries, and shes going to continue to rebel and resent her mother just like i do.
Ive grown to realize my mom is no superhero shes also human. Ive found ways to make things work. I hope my little sister does too.
Its just sad when you feel more adult like than your parents. Crazy schizo alcoholic father and stuck in lala land selfish mother.
Thats okay. I know im going to be a super hero.
