let me clear something up ....

I tried to write this through blogger yesterday but it would not post so I will try again.

Just as an FYI I would like to explain the relationship between me and my sister. Oh, and I would also like to say that I have nothing against strippers....I use to dance/strip a few years ago.

My sister looks really bad and life is taking a bad turn for her. I do not feel bad for her because she has made the choice to do this to herself. I have tried to point her in the right direction but she has a mind of her own and makes bad choices. I will not keep pulling her out of the shit she gets herself into. I just can't do it anymore. The following are the reasons why I have bad feeling towards her.

1. Jessica is a thief. She stole Anna's money from her before she was even born. I was in the hospital giving birth to Anna and I come home to find that she stole Anna's piggy bank. I had about $50.00 in it for her at the time. I came home to find a few pennys.

2. Jessica stole rent money from my $250.00 safe. She broke into the safe while I was at work and stole the money when she was babysitting for me.

3. Mom was suppose to watch Anna for me while I was working at the club. I got a call from Jessica and she was crying. The police were going to pick her up at a store she got caught stealing at and they were going to take Anna away(mom let Jessica take Anna shopping(lifting) with her). I had to get in touch with a cop friend and ask him if he could get Anna for me because it would have taken me to long to pick Anna up.

4. I use to take care of all Jessica's needs while she was locked up for trying to rob a little old lady.

5. I had to find out from Jessicas friend that she was dating Anna's father. James was with his son's mother at the time him and Jessica got together. I just can't believe I did not hear it from her and that she did not even try to get in touch with me for over a year. I am the one who got in touch with her.

6. Jessica got both my dad and my stepdad in trouble because she said they both abused her at different times.

7. I had custody of Jessica at one time so she could go to school and have a place to live.

8. Jessica decided it would be nicer to live in an abandoned car then have to live in a house that had rules.(she was 17 at the time)

9. In the picture below she is 19. She has had a rough life. I feel no sympathy for her because she chose this life for herself and she wants no help to get out of it.

These are just some of the things we have been through together.

Deep understanding here. I have stepson who's been doing crap like that for 35 years. Now facing time in penitentiary for drug abuse. Been forgiven and forgiven and forgiven, but nothing helps. Sometimes, you just have to pull the plug. Good luck, kid.

I am not really mean to Jessica I just can't have her walk all over me anymore. It makes me sick to see what she is doing to herself now.

Hi Dawn. I'm here via Michele.

How terrible for you to have such a terrible sister. I am so very thankful for the terrific relationship I have with my one and only older sibling Kim. We have a great relationship. One day Jessica will (hopefully), look back at her life and just realise what type of person she has been and what she has done to those who love her. It's good that you can vent your views through blogging. Good luck.

Hey - you shouldn't have to explain yourself, that's the beauty of blogging. : )

Seriously tho, we all have toxic relationships. And sometimes, we realize that we need to distance ourselves from those people. It don't make ya a bad person.

That's rough! I think there are things you only have so much control over and if you don't have control and they are threatening to your own life and children, you have to let go, because we only have one life. But it is still rough.

Hang in there.

BTW, coming from Michele's Meet and Greet.

Good morning, Dawn. Hey, I completely understand your feelings. There comes a time when you just can't be walked on anymore, ya know.

Plus, it's your blog and you should be able to write whatever you want. Isn't that what a blog is for?

Oh Dawn, you've definitely been through some things with her and it's great you're not taking her crap anymore. Maybe some "tough love" will her some good.

*Hugs*

I've always said just because you're related to someone doesn't mean you have to like them. You pick your friends, you can't pick your family, but sometimes you just have to unpick them.

P.S. Who is this Michele that keeps sending people to your site?
