Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.

I wish I had supported my grandparents when My Evil Mother took everything they had. I wish I hadn’t tried to remain neutral for self preservation. My grandparents worked their entire lives for what they had and she took it all from them.

She likes to tell me how I liked the fact that they left because Rudi and I got to stay in their room (which was bigger than the room we were staying in before). This isn’t true. I’d lived in the entrance hall of the house for months before, not exactly picky about space, now am I? I tried my best not to pick sides as I needed My Evil Mother to continue paying me the money she owed me.

If I had known then what I know now, I probably would have made a different decision at the time. The money My Evil Mother owed me then didn’t come close to the amount she owed me later on when she shunned me and started treating me like a leper. My grandparents needed my support and I wasn’t there for them.

My grandfather asked me not so long ago what happened there (after he realized he was going to die). Whose side was I on? Why didn’t I support them? He thought I was on her side and felt what she did was right. He was wrong and I explained to him why I did what I did. This must have been bothering him for years. There was no way I could have helped save that situation financially, but I should have been there for them emotionally.
