prettydance Posted March 10, 2007 Share Posted March 10, 2007 I'm upset because my mother was very poor when i was a child and had to go on welfare and lived in a bad area where me and my sister were subjected to abuse, rape, etc.. She got married to my father who told her not to work he will support her. He wound up getting cancer and heart problems 1 month after i was born.. he had no life insurance, no health plan, worked off the books,, his whole banck account was wiped out for his treatments.. My Moms sister and brother had alot of money at the time and did not help. My grandmother gave her whole life savings of $500,000 to my Moms brother for his business and no one heard from him after that.. Then my Moms sister did not offer to help as well and she is a millionaire. My dads family who were wealthy as well told us to just go on welfare and move to public housing. What I'm most upset about now that I'm older that during my whole childhood my whole extended family would make fun of us because we were poor and treat us like were pathetic. Make fun of our furniture, neighborhood, etc..My aunt would throw it in my moms face how much money she has and would laugh and say "dont you want to live here instead of the ghetto"? As an adult they always look at me with pity in their face no matter how well i was doing to improve my life. nothing made them respect me. All her sons(my cousins) all treat me like her as well, like she told them how poor we are. At the same time, my rich aunt forced my Mom to caretake for my grandmother at a nursing home while my aunt was retired and had nothing to do. Because of that my Mom could not go to college to get a better income for her job. My aunt knew it and did not care. Also the aunt always puts down everything i try to do good for myself like going to college, she puts down everything i want to major in and says its dumb, she says studying advertising is idiotic and i will wind up in the gutter with a degree like that,, she says my idea to try modeling is dumb, that when i'm older i will be fat just like her, that I'm 25 and and an old woman and its too late to find a husband because I'm too old, etc....She did not even go to college.. Funny thing is I have worked with highly successful people who all like me and have told me I am very talented and smart and I have great ideas. I dont want anything to do with my Aunt or any of these people anymore. Is what they did abuse?? I think it is. My sister tells me no one is obligated to give anyone money whos over 18 not even parents so I should not be mad that no one helped my Mom, i think shes wrong. Link to comment
