Alas, I’ve gotten this directly from family members who would smear me, and still do I’m sure, regardless of what good I did. Finally had to cut ties and purse strings with these people because they would expect me to do or pay for something, even when it was not my responsibility, and, either way, would be mean to me. They treated strangers better. Nothing like feeling like a living wallet for people who don’t give a *** about you, but who are supposed to, unconditionally. Terribly life lesson to learn. Just because people are blood does not mean they will love and respect you.
