Woman Turns To Reddit For Advice After Refusing To Provide Money To Her Own Mother, Even Though She's Thriving
Put yourself in the shoes of our original poster's story, back when she was a young soul at the age of 15, as she navigates the twists and turns of life. She encounters a minor hiccup, not a major catastrophe, just a small 'oops' moment.
After being expelled from grammar school, OP's mom ruthlessly cut her off. No food, no clothing after 16—I guess it's 'welcome to the real world' time. And why, you ask? Well, OP's mom had grand plans for her child's career. But OP, well, they had a canvas-sized dream—being an artist. They decided to follow their path, and who can blame them?
But here's the punchline: That full-time job? It's a pretty good gig. Dollar bills are rolling in, especially for a 20-year-old. So, the mom's re-entry into OP's life comes with a demand for money. Yep, you read that right. It's like she's found a hidden treasure map and thinks X marks 'OP's wallet.' But there's more; she even went as far as to be at OP's wedding. The awful mom is throwing grenades of demands, threatening to hijack the whole celebration. But still, OP wonders if she was wrong for not letting her mom back into her life.
