“Dear Sibling, : a reblog for MLMM Sunday Confessionals

I’m reblogging this in response to Oloriel’s Sunday Confessionals. It’s an old piece that didn’t see much traffic but I think it fits the theme today. I was angry when I wrote it and often have imaginary conversations which I know will never come about. No point in screaming about injustice or unfair representation so yelling into a hole is a good option!


I have upset you.
You feel I am unsupportive and inconsiderate.
Our offers for respite ‘holiday breaks’ in recent years have been refused due to ill-health, dogs, personal issues, working commitments, or pending births all revolving around other members of your family.
Our offers for taking over the Responsibility of Care full-time were refused in preference to you, because we were told
You cannot manage and need to be looked after.
Even when distance was not an issue, something or someone in your household always took priority over us.
You prefer to have no contact with me.

It has not been my intention to hurt anyone.
And just so that there is absolutely no misunderstanding here, I am not closing the door on your family.
I’m slamming it.
slamSo I suggest you remove your foot. “

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    One can just do much and not more when the other person refuses to give an inch.
