SoundofReason Posted September 29, 2017 Share Posted September 29, 2017 Hello, I posted a long time ago about some abuse that I underwent as a child in my family with my mother. She passed away a few years ago, and my now estranged sister gave me all of my stuff that she had as a child, report cards, confirmation, my father's high school diploma, a newspaper clipping of my grandfather in WW 2. The thing is that..since then I have changed my name. Due to the abuse and the constant lies, I found out that she named me after a relative on my father's side. He has nothing to do with me, and has disowned me through no fault on my own, but because my mom was crazy and stalking him as well as harassing him in court, he didn't want to have anything to do with us. So not only did she run my real father off, who will now have nothing to do with me, but she also abused me the whole time i was there growing up. I have all this stuff from when I was a kid, it doesn't make me feel bad to see it, but I have since changed my name to something that I find more pleasing since my grandmother took me in as a teen and unofficially adopted me. I picked a name that I liked and something that I figured that she would give me, and it works. I tried to fix things with my one and only sibling, but she was around my mother too long, and the constant abuse took its toll and now she acts like her as well. I found out later on that my family knew that she was like that, and did nothing to stop it. I disowned my entire family, which wasn't hard since they never try to keep in touch(though i try, countless times) and I got tired of being the one always reaching out and trying to maintain communication when it was obvious that they were not even trying. So that is the back story...the question now is..what do I do with this stuff? Keep it? Throw it away? I am kinda torn on this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
