she's dating the cousin of my rapist.
at my last therapy session my therapist asked if i can ever forgive my sister for this. i had to think about it. it boiled down to (and this how i responded): i don't care about my sister's relationship with the guy. i care more about my relationship with my sister.
hearing her laugh and talk in the kitchen... it enrages me.
i am still furious at her.
i have to take deep breaths. i have to breathe.
i have to let go of my anger at her if i am ever going to get my sister back.
she is not going to stop dating this guy any time soon. she doesn't care that it's hurting me.
i need to stop resenting her for her relationship with him if i want to have any sort of relationship with her.
i need to breathe. her presence in this house... my chest feels like it's going to cave in - i am so so fucking angry.
i need to let go. whether she's dating him to hurt me or not. i need. to let. go.
