She could be a person who has a rudeness to her. Does she often make statements like this to people? Maybe you woke her up. Or maybe that's the way things are.
Late reply, I know! I don’t think I saw your reply when I posted this thread. I am going through my old threads to see what I’ve written as I’m still really struggling with my family.
Yes, my sister does have a rudeness to her. She can be a bit condescending at times. I remember once when my sister made a derogatory comment (and laughed) and my dad was shocked. It was DEFINITELY a “punching down” kind of thing. I don’t remember if my dad said something directly to her, but him criticizing her at all was a big thing as he doesn’t really do this.
My sister and I are very different people. I’d like to have a relationship with her, but I realize that may not be possible. My nephew was born in July and I haven’t met him yet.
My dissociation is better, but still there. I don’t know if I’m strong enough to reach out to her yet. I’d like to share my struggles with her, but I need to be in a place where if I get no response, I will be ok. Now that I think of it, I’m not strong enough to reach out just yet. I think I’m feeling sad because it’s Christmas today.
