aggieamy Posted February 8, 2012 Share Posted February 8, 2012 This is a strange question but I'm asking here because you gals (and guys) are some of the smartest that I know. How do you honor your parents when they aren't deserving of it? My mother is a horrible person. Literally. Right now she is not involved in any of our lives because she breeds discontent and unhappiness everywhere. She's essentailly an unstable con-artist. I'm not exagerating at all. Possibly mentally ill. Possible just acts strangely to make people unhappy and upset. There's the background. Right now she's been trying to get in touch with my youngest sister. My youngest sister is a very nice, understanding, sweet person. She wants to believe that everyone is good however a few things our mother has done in the last year have caused my sister to stop speaking with her like the rest of us have done years ago. My mother is trying to get back in touch with my sister and I'm advising her to not do it. I'm older and I've seen this woman in action a lot more than my sister has. She's a bad person. So when I told my sister to just ignore her and she'll stop trying to get in touch with her my sister asked "How does that work with honoring your parents then?" How do I answer her? We also weren't raised by our mother. We have a great dad, step-mother, and grandparents all of whom we show our utmost love and respect too. Thanks for reading through my novel and any suggestions on how to answer my sister's question are appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
