My letter to Someone. #Blogtober16

I am taking part in Blogtober16 and will be writing posts with various themes/prompts throughout October....Today's prompt is a letter to someone...

This prompt came just at the right time....I want to rant about someone but now is not the right time to go into details....A letter to an anonymous person is just a perfect way to get my feelings out.....
When you were in my life you controlled me. You made me make choices that I should have never had to make!

When you were out of my life you controlled how I lived my life still. I was afraid to speak to certain people, you alienated me from people I considered family. I dreaded phone calls and letters coming in case they were from you.

You chose other people rather than your own flesh and blood....The choice was good for me because you had something else to occupy your time instead of bothering me....

You lived the life of Riley for a while until that fell apart....You came crying to me. Asking for my support. I called you out on the lies you told and you said I was just causing trouble....You said I could only speak to you as long as I didn't mention your partner!

When you were feeling bad and sorry for yourself you would contact me and make idle threats. You have ruined birthdays and Christmas's for my family but do you care? Nope. Not one bit!

I fought back....Now the control has gone and you have no power over me. I am not afraid of you or your partner.

Recently you have tried to come back into my life....Not because it's the right thing to do but because you want my help and support....Sorry but that ship sailed a long time ago. You are slowly realising that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. Maybe if you had realised this many years ago things could have been different!

I know you read my blog. You pretend you don't but I see you.....It must be awful looking in at what you could have been part of....We are better off without you! You will never be part of our life.....I may sound bitter but it is how I feel. After everything you have put me through I am having the last laugh and I am laughing loudly.....

I just thought getting my thoughts out would make a good blog post.....Maybe one day I will share the full story here on my blog but today I will leave it here.....

  6. I always think when people treat you badly it really says so much about them as a person. Well done for standing strong against someone who sounds better out of your life.
