My mom invited invited X and two other cousins to help clean up the house. I don't have any issues with my other cousins, but they noticed something wasn't right. I tried to bury my feelings to work with everyone, but I couldn't. 20-30 minutes into working with them, I emotionally collapsed. I shut down. X had the nerve to ask, "What's wrong? You looked drained."
Drained? Drained is scratching the surface on how I feel right now. I stormed out, went in my room and shut the door. It's all I could do to hold myself together. But even then, I felt exposed. I found some items I saw X with earlier that somehow winded up in my room. It's bad enough he's at the house, did he really have to enter my room and invade my personal space?
