Continuing the discussion from Family dinner:
I’ve been trying to find a way how NOT to be the monkey in the middle. My kid sis is not asking me to take a side, but I bet you can guess which side I’m naturally on. I am beginning to think this is a ploy by him or something. Is he trying to keep it nice and goodie with me as a way to get to her worse? Maybe I am getting paranoid?
How is it, he can be so cool to me, our parents, but just try to destroy the one person who actually saved his job and his insurance. I know that all those years of drinking is NOT going to correct themselves by 35 days in rehab, but man… this is getting relentless.
It seems like when I tell him to back off and how much it hurts her and now she’s started “artistically” carving into herself… he just seems happier. He just seems so Happy that she’s getting worse.
I think I now understand what an energy vampier is. Maybe that is why he is so happy? Maybe because he is weak and she’s stronger… he’s just drinking her strength… If that makes any sense. But that doesn’t make life any better. When does it end?
I’d like to see it stop anyway.
How in the world do I stop being the monkey in the middle?
