Nearing the end of the year reminded me of times that had not been as straight as a road with dotted lines. Mishaps happen. Time changes.
I went to see my family. Worst thing I could have done. I did not inform them that I was on my way, let alone that I wanted to speak to them.
Reaching my destination at seven that the morning, all was quiet. I knocked on the door. Still no movement or sound. Suddenly a noise came from the back yard. I rushed to the back. There they were. Both still in their pajamas. My fiance and my sister.
In my mind I took scissors and cut the straight line I lived in half.
“Cut the crap! I hate both of you. You both are not welcome in my life.” I went back and ended the relationship. Ending it was not easy but had been worth it.
