There is someone in my extended family who has bullied me for many years. He has upset me more times than I care to remember.
This person is in my life as they are family. I would not choose their company but they are family.
For more than 20 years I have tried to maintain this family relationship.
But enough is enough.
Today I told this distant relative to get lost (I could/should have said it more politely but I hadn't slept in 24 hours).
Today, I finally feel free.
