It’s a little heart breaking for me to sit here and talk about family. I have had plenty of family members turn their backs on me wanting to deal with someone else and their problems rather than stick with family.
I’ve recently heard a story from a co-worker of mine that his mother-in-law has recently passed. She’s had a lot invested for the family and everyone knew it. Once she had passed, cousins, aunts, and uncles of the in-laws came from near and far to collect what ever she had in store for them in the will… But not once did anyone ask about the mother or anyone else in the family. There was a select few who showed up to the funeral but not everyone who came to collect went.
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of things like this happening to family and I’m sure this won’t be the last. I cherish and love all of my family members as a whole and try my best to check in with everyone who show that they care for me. There are those who I care a great deal about, but there are those who I know for sure act just like the in-laws of my co-workers family who are kind of gold diggers. I stay away from those people whether they are family or not.
It’s crazy to think about but even your own blood can treat you like you’re beneath them and be so cold to one another. I couldn’t even begin to imagine losing my mother and my cousins acting like they own my mothers things. I would not be a happy camper and would probably want to fight them.
What do you think? How would you react if it was your mother who passed and people in your family just came around to collect? Any thoughts or emotions running through your mind while reading this story? Leave a comment!
