After the death of her grandmother left a woman with $6 million in inheritance, she offered to offer financial support to her siblings if they worked hard. However, this act of kindness was only met by more demands.
When the woman’s older brother left for college, she became responsible for her siblings and all household chores, despite her sister’s disability not requiring constant supervision.
Inheritance and Family History
Three years ago, the woman’s grandparents passing left her with a substantial $6 million inheritance. This was left solely to her due to her brother’s estrangement, her mother’s poor treatment of the family, and her Christian grandparents’ reaction to her siblings’ life choices.
Sharing Her Inheritance
Six years ago, the woman cut ties with her parents and hasn’t contacted them since. She offered to share her inheritance, covering her siblings’ living and educational expenses, but only if they excel academically and work hard.
Sister With A Bad Attitude
The woman decided she wouldn’t help her sister unless she changed her attitude. Explaining, she wrote: “My parents raised her with the mentality that her disability means she’s allowed to do whatever and everyone needs to bend backward for her.”
Sister’s Poor Academic Performance
The sister had recently begun college, which meant she could have potentially received financial help from the woman. However, the sister had been lazily neglecting her studies and overspending, and this meant the woman did not think it was wise to offer support.
Refusal to Help
Reckless spending meant that the woman’s sister was experiencing financial hardship, and this led to her mother demanding the same financial support as the other siblings. The woman immediately refused, explaining that her sister was “doing horrible in school because she isn’t even attending her classes, and she will most likely be expelled or held back”.
Conflicting Family Views
The woman’s decision caused conflict with family members who believed she should help her sister because of her disability. However, the woman justified her decision, making it explicit that her sister’s disability “does not stop her from functioning like any other person”
Searching Online For Advice
Troubled by conundrum, the woman told her story online to seek the opinion of others. “Don’t listen to them” commented one person. “You’ve helped other people because you thought they deserved it. Any drama here has not been caused by you. Your parents caused this and have only been in contact because they want your money.”
Maintaining Grandparents’ Trust
Others wrote of the importance of protecting an inheritance from greedy family members: “Your grandparents knew who was the right person to get their money”, someone expressed. “Don’t fold. You’re 100% in the right.”
Another commenter even suggested legal action: “Please consult a lawyer to protect your inheritance so your parents or sister cannot get at it.”
