Maya and Rae’s sisterly bond is tested when Rae imposes on Maya’s trip to visit their parents and demands help with her child, leading to a rift between them that may not be easily resolved.
They Were Sisters
Meet Maya and Rae, two sisters who grew up in NYC. Their parents own a vacation home, and when Maya moved out, their parents decided to move to their vacation home permanently. They’ve only been back to NYC once, so Maya recently decided to visit them.
She Didn’t Tell Her
While talking to her mom and Rae, Maya’s plans came up, and Rae asked why she didn’t tell her she was planning to go to California. Maya said it had nothing to do with her, so why would she have to tell her anything. Rae said it made no sense for them to do separate trips when they could just go together.
She Acted Entitled
Maya said she’s acting extremely entitled to something she had no part in, and Maya’s not obligated to include Rae in every plan she makes. Rae cried to their mom, who said it was a good idea. Maya told Rae that if she comes, she can’t ask her for anything, and she’s not helping with her kid.
The day came, and their connecting flight was delayed, so they had to stay the night. Maya was trying to fall asleep, and Rae asked if she was really going to sleep. Maya was annoyed and said, “If you leave me alone”. Later, Rae asked Maya to watch the baby, but Maya refused. She told Rae that she knew the terms and should figure it out herself.
She Should Grow Up
They made it to their parents’ vacation home, but their mom asked Maya if she really raised her to be so cold towards her sister. She said Rae had broken down and had a mental meltdown. Maya said she loves her sister, but she should grow up and stop being so dramatic about a situation she put herself in.
The Mom Got Involved
Their mom said it wouldn’t have hurt to help her even just a little, but Maya said she didn’t help her make the baby, and she should’ve known something could go wrong when traveling.
They Haven’t Spoken
They got back a week ago and haven’t spoken to each other at all, but Rae texted Maya today, saying how hurt she was and how she feels like Maya doesn’t care about her or her nephew at all. Maya told her that she knew what she was getting into when she begged to come and imposed on her trip. Rae said she thought Maya would’ve changed her mind when she realized they would have to sleep in the airport. Maya said, “Your kid. Your responsibility.”
Straight to the Internet
Maya wondered if she should apologize to Rae to shut her up, but she also felt she was totally in her right with how she acted in the situation. With such torment, Maya decided to head online and ask a popular internet forum for advice.
The Internet Responds
One person writes, “You are not obligated to include your sister in your travel plans, although I do think that, in theory, it sounds like a nice idea to visit your parents together. Nothing wrong with a little family get together. In reality though, you sound terribly cold like your mother said. Do you hate your sister? Do you hate your nephew? You sound like you do. It wouldn’t kill you to be a tiny bit helpful, especially in extenuating circumstances. What’s your problem? If that’s how you were going to act, your answer should have been a hard no when your sister asked to tag along. Had she known that’s how you were going to act, I’m certain she wouldn’t have asked. You took a great opportunity to spend quality time with your sister and her sweet baby and pooped all over it.”
Another Person Responds
Another person puts, “While what you’re saying is true I feel incredibly sad for families that have such rigid rules with each other and operate in such transactional ways… If my sister or nephew is struggling even though I don’t have help I would… Just like they would do the same for me.”
A Final Response
A third person writes, “They clearly don’t have a good relationship. Her sister going behind her back and making their mom guilt tripping her into letting the sister join… Very manipulative. She also admits to lying to her sister so she’d let her join. Manipulative again. Sounds like it’s a pattern, she sounds like a bad entitled manipulative sister, I’d be cold with her, too.”
