Day 14 — A hero that has let you down.
This may be a hard one.
First I have to say that I love you and I know that you’ve done your very best to raise us. And I also know that in your own way that you love us dearly, but what at the same time I think that you’re selfish.
This may be harsh, but often the truth can be harsh and hurt.
I realize that I am an adult and all that but I want my parents in my life, in my childrens lives, and just to be there. Now maybe I’m the one that’s being selfish. But I feel that you’ve let me, my siblings, and your grandchildren down.
You’ve seen your grandson exactly one time in his entire life and that wasn’t until he was 5 months old. You never talk to your son or his children. And why? Because you’re being stubborn and the reasoning behind it is absolutely, without a doubt childish. On both of your parts really.
I call and we talk for a bit, but it seems superficial at times, and if you don’t answer I leave a message and of course you rarely return my call.
I don’t know what to do to change this or make it better, but what I can say is that it hurts me and while I can’t speak for my brother & sister, or your grandkids I think that it probably hurts them as well.
In the end it will be you who will be missing out on so much. You have incredible grandkids who won’t have those special memories of time spent with their grandma like I did.
You’ve let us down and maybe I just need to let it go and move on.
