Hard Reality of Life

by Anonymous

My father died when I was 17 years. I have 7 brothers and sisters younger to me. My mother is an illiterate lady.

I studied and could find a good job. I did not marry but looked after upkeep of my house which stands in the name of my mother.

All my brothers and sisters are married and I have spent substantial amount on their marriages. I am now 64. My mother has given her movable property to my brothers and sisters.

I feel disappointed and dejected that my mother has not shown any love towards me by gifting me something little. She is very quarrelsome and is not on speaking terms with her daughter in laws.

My sisters are manipulating & meddling in my day to day relation with my mother so much so that I have overheard her speaking to my sisters that she is not going to give her immovable property to any of her son including me.

Yet I still take care of her.

My brothers also take care of her. We have lost all over for her we just take care of her because she is an old lady and does not know what she is doing. May God help us.

Your siblings are selfish, but you are a considerate and responsible person. Some lessons do come "hard" and this is obviously just that for you.

No matter what, though, you can always be proud of your acts of kindness and generosity in contrast to your sibling's and mother's actions. Sometimes that's all we can expect.
