I try to keep things 100% honest on my blog so today I want to talk about my family. You may have noticed that I rarely talk about or show my family on my blog (except for my mother). I recently recconnected with some members of my family. One of the biggest mistakes of my life, but all of this is a part of my story.
Some of my family members were the first teachers of lessons in distrust, deception, and deceit. That sounds really negative, but sadly it is negative. Over the years some of my family members have tried to make me feel like I'm not good enough or my efforts are pointless. I'm glad I know my worth, but the things they have done and said to hurt me is still very troubling.
I've heard rumors about myself that were false or not even close to story of what really happened. When I think of my family I often think of my granddaddy. I miss him so much. Sadly he died in 2005, but I know this isn't how he would've his legacy to continue. It seems like the family members that did love and care about me have all died. Unfortunately I feel left with the family members that are liars and manipulators, but who said life was fair right? God, I'm thankful for my mom and the few family members that I get along with.
I used to actually think my mom was adopted because how could a sweet kind loving person like my mother be related to such people? Incase you're wondering no my mom isn't adopted.
Family is not always blood related. I have people in my life that aren't related to me that have treated me with kindness, love, and respect. I've had strangers treat me kinder than some of my family. I find it strange that my family gets offended when I don't come around, but why would I go around people that lie and start problems? That doesn't even make any sense.
2019 so far hasn't been that great in a few areas of my life, but I try not focus on the bad things. Things that are within my control, I make decisions as I see fit. If anyone in my family is snooping around social media you're reading my words that I find peace without the drama. If anyone in my family feels a certain way, then this post probably applies to you. I don't have any issues with some members of my family. I spoke my truth. As the saying goes the truth shall set you free.
