A Woman Lost Her Mother, Now Her Step-Sister Keeps Asking for Precious Family Keepsakes and Has Even Turned the Woman’s Step-Mother Against Her

Lila, a woman who recently lost her mother, faces pressure from her stepsister to give her some of her mother’s paintings as keepsakes, leading to a family conflict when Lila wants to keep them for herself.

Family Situation Looms

Meet “Lila,” a 25-year-old who had a complicated family situation. Her parents got married straight out of high school, had her right away, and then split up when she was 3 years-old. But they stayed close friends until the day her mother died. Her dad remarried Ana when she was 7, and she gained a stepsister, Eve, who is now 22. Then they had a brother, Jake, together.

When Jake was a toddler, he was really sick, so their parents spent a lot of time at the hospital with him, and Lila spent a lot of time at her mom’s house. Eve’s dad worked weird hours, so her mom was more than happy to take Eve too most of the time. Lila’s mom was a talented and passionate artist and was determined to foster a love of art in her children. She succeeded in doing so, but Eve is far more talented than Lila, and she and Lila’s mom bonded over their shared love of painting.

The Mother Passes Away

Lila’s mother passed away suddenly in January, and Lila was completely devastated. In late April, she finally got the spirit to start organizing her mother’s things. Eve approached her after she mentioned that she was going to her mother’s home to sort through some stuff and asked her if she could look through her mother’s paintings and have a few as keepsakes because her mother was such an inspiration for her.

She Refused To Give Anything

Lila refused to give her the paintings, stating that they were the closest things she had left to her mom. There were pieces of her soul in there, and they were the most personal items she left. Eve got really upset and said she didn’t care about any of the other things either and that she didn’t think she was asking for that much. She said Lila’s mother was an important person in her life, and they had a strong relationship. Eve believes that if Lila’s mother would’ve left her something, she would have left her some paintings.

Family Torn Apart

Despite Eve’s insistence, Lila still said no, and Eve went to her mom to complain. Now, Lila’s immediate family is torn on the issue and arguing when they see each other. Her dad understands but thinks she can give up one or two. He believes that she might change her mind in a couple of years once the pain isn’t so fresh. However, Eve and Ana are pushing her so hard on it and being passive-aggressive towards her, and she feels completely different about them now. They all used to be close.

She Acted Insensitive

Lila understands that Eve wasn’t a stranger to her mom, but that’s just not enough for her. She thinks her own grief is bigger, and to ask her for such a personal thing so soon after her mother’s death was insensitive. She’s even more upset that they don’t even see the irony of Eve sending her own living mother after her for her dead mom’s stuff.

Lila was so insistent she was doing the right thing, however she decided to head onto the internet to seek advice from a popular online forum. She wanted to know if anyone disagreed with what she was doing.

The Internet Responds

One person writes, “The giving of gifts is an act of generosity. If you aren’t feeling it, you should not give. Your choice, no matter what anyone else thinks or feels.”

A second person comments, “I hate the common theme of one person leveraging family bonds to get a squad together, turn them on the target, and try to force them to that person’s will. It’s manipulative and hostile.”

A Final Commenter Put

Lastly someone comments, “They are both grieving but Eve still has her mother. Her mother should be pointing that out to her and telling her to let this go instead of helping in bullying the OP to hand over some art.”
