Throughout her formative years, the girl carried the fear that making a mistake would cause people to stop loving her. However, the shocking truth later emerged when the girl, now a woman, was informed that the mother had cheated on her dad, and the woman’s sister was not biologically related to her dad.

Their reunion and farewell were bittersweet. “I’m glad that we were able to spend some time together and was surprised that she left me some money. It was enough to pay off all my student loans, buy a decently used car, and still have some leftover”. 

A Contentious Request

However, her parents learned of the inheritance and wanted her to share it with her sister. The woman felt outraged by this request: “I told them that just because they put themselves and my sister before me doesn’t mean I have to put them before me, too, and I wasn’t going to give her a cent”.

Readers of the story could not believe how awfully the woman had been treated as a young girl. “You poor thing thinking your grandma didn’t want to see you anymore because of the book”, one person cried. “You must have been racked with guilt when it was stupid adult problems all along.”
