They Always Disliked me but Now Want me to Care for Them
My in-laws never approved of me. I have been in their lives for 40 years but because I am of a different background they disapproved of me.
Their numerous slights and comments still sting and haunt me even though I did nothing to deserve them. I know there are two sides to every story but even my husband says they are small minded and I did my best.
Well guess what? They are now in their late 80's and since we live in the same town now they want to be my buddy. They are needing help in so many ways and I am asked to fill in a lot of the time.
Now they want me to help them with their finances, medical care, cook all holiday meals and pretty soon I will probably be cleaning out their house so they can move to a townhouse. I know that I need to be the bigger person but this is really hard.
