Is it bad that I don’t want to talk to them anymore?
I haven’t talked to or seen my dad in about 4 months. (My parents are divorced and I live with my mom and boyfriend until we can afford to move out.) We had this really big falling out and I decided I no longer wanted to talk to him. Well the past few weeks my stepmom keeps trying to talk to me and is trying to act like nothing happened. I honestly don’t want to talk to them anymore. They just make me feel bad about myself and are only worried about themselves. Not having them in my life has made things less stressful. She keeps messaging me on Facebook so I deactivated it so that she can’t anymore. But she keeps calling, so i’m considering blocking her. Is it wrong for me to feel this way? If you want to know what happened in the falling out please let me know and I’ll gladly explain.
I have many family members whom I feel the exact same way about. You can't help feeling what you feel, and if you are less stressful and a happier person cutting off ties from them, then I think you should do what makes you happy. It's not your job in life to coddle the feelings of others, and it's not your job to give up your own happiness just for someone else. No matter what the circumstances, your life is yours and you can't let it be taken over by someone you aren't even sure you want in your life.
@Sparkles She doesn't understand that I don't want to talk to them anymore. She invited me to my stepsisters wedding and stuff too. She won't leave me alone and she tries to make me feel bad for not talking to her. That's why I no longer want her in my life, she stresses me out and makes me feel shitty. I wanna block her but I'm kind scared too.
