A woman named Sarah grew up with a narcissistic mother and never knew her father. The first hug she ever received was at 10 years old from her mother’s boyfriend, Dan, who later became the only father figure in her life.

Dan’s death when Sarah was 16 and her sister was 5 had a significant impact on their lives. He had left a trust fund for Sarah and her sister, with 75% going to her sister and 25% going to Sarah. Sarah was also made the executor of her sister’s fund.

Her Mom Was Furious

Sarah’s mother became furious and made the next two years of their lives a living hell. When Sarah’s mother started dating a man called Brad, she made it clear that Sarah’s sister would only be allowed to go to college if she shared her trust fund with Brad’s daughter.

Sarah held the trust fund above her mother’s head to ensure that her sister was treated fairly. She repeatedly told them that she would give Brad’s daughter half of the fund until her sister was 18 and moved to college. Once her sister moved out, they both cut off contact with their mother and blocked her.

She Had Misled Them

Sarah later found out through friends that her stepsister couldn’t get into any college because she didn’t want to apply for loans and was depressed. While Sarah acknowledged that she misled them, she felt that she had to prioritize her sister’s safety.

Sarah wondered if she was the jerk for causing her stepsister’s depression and robbing her of the opportunity to go to college. However, after receiving reassurance from others, Sarah and her sister decided not to contact their stepsister, as they were never close to her and didn’t want to involve their mother in any way.

The Internet Responded

This commenter wrote, “You did what you needed to do to protect your baby sister, and for that, you should be proud. Your mother was trying to deny her the right to an education in order to rob her. You were justified in saying whatever you needed to say to protect your sister’s interests. Dan knew what he was doing when he named you executor. He knew that you would safeguard your sister’s interests, and you have proven that he was right to trust you.”

Another person commented, “If you didn’t go along with this ruse, how would your sister have been treated? Could you have lived with yourself if you possibly could’ve prevented something terrible happening to your sister, but didn’t do that so you didn’t have to lie? You picked the option that kept you and your sister safe.”

A Final Comment

This last person posted and said this, “Don’t feel bad for “denying” your step-sister any money. Your narcissistic mother would have most likely used it up for herself or renovations or whatever. A narcissistic person would find any excuse imaginable to put themselves above the needs of others. What makes you think she would’ve respected using that money for college?”
