Trust Issue

by greenacres

I feel like my mom is manipulating both my sister and me to the point where we (my sister and me) are not communicating at all. Mom is like two different people. Sister has been rejecting my attempts to talk. Mom says I did not do anything wrong. I don't know what happened. We used to be real tight and there for each other no matter what.

This all changed when we lost our father four years ago. My heart is broken. I can't seem to accept that we are not sisters anymore. Do I keep trying or just stop.

YES mom has always controlled my dad. She is/was an alcoholic during the time this sister was in her teens. I guess it's true every child has a different childhood. I have been trying to contact sister by means of phone as I am not that social media savvy.

For at least 3 years now I've been calling her cell and home and leaving a message, told my mom to tell her to call me, etc. to the point where I look like a stalker!

just kidding, but that's how I feel> Would you just show up on her doorstep if it were you? She only lives an hour away. I don't know why I am so intimidated by her and her husband. I just know they are the definition of narcissism and have really hurt my whole family.

I still LOVE my sister and my nephew, but it seems really weird since she cut me out of her life. I just want to understand. I don't know what to do, but am tired of waking up crying over her. Someone please advise!

Was she manipulating and controlling your father when he was living? If yes, it’s very possible that she is behaving that way towards you and your sister because she can no longer control and manipulate your father. Do keep trying with your sister.
