To forgive and forget, or to hold firm in a boundary with someone who has wronged you.
This is a major question a lot of people grapple with in their lives, particularly when it comes to toxic family members. There's no one-size-fits-all answer, so it's crucial to consider your specific situation in detail.
AITA for telling my mom that she can stay in my house but not my stepdad or his son's family?
My dad died when I was 5 and my mom married my stepdad around 3 years later. He had two kids as well, a boy that was 3 years older than me and a daughter that was 2 years younger, and he always treated them better than he treated me.
My mom was a stay-at-home mom and never worked. He held the fact that he saved us from poverty over our heads. Things didn't get really bad though until my half-brother was born.
