Ok here goes I never had a relationship with one of my parents, they were never around. This parent has other children , older and younger than me that I have never met. I have never met this parent but have done some sleuthing and seen a photo of a younger sister. I used to get about 1 letter a year from this parent and haven't heard from them in 2 years. I feel abandoned and unworthy, especially as this parent really seems to love this little sister. I now have this sisters e-mail address, she is 20 now. I was planning on e-mailing her as a long lost friend just to find out more about her and our shared parent. I don't think this sister even knows I exist. I know her other parent knows about me but I don't think I have ever been mentioned. I was planning on asking in e-mail if sister had any siblins and seeing what they say. Here's the thing I know if they say no, I will be even more hurt than I already am. Should I even bother? How do I gt over the fact that this parent doesn't love me or care about me and has never even met me. Most probably doesn't even know what I look like. How do I get over this. This has been hurting me for a long time and I need to get over it b4 I start law school. I don't have money to see a shrink Serious advice only please
No matter how bad you feel now, remember, time heals all pains.
Hmmmm.....I know the title of the site, "LAW SCHOOL DISCUSSION" and the title of this board "APPLYING TO LAW SCHOOL" could possbily lead one to believe that this is the place to post their non-law school related musings on their childhood. Still, I think you may have meant to post this question elsewhere....like a self-help board. Or maybe a psychology or psychiatry advice board. Or perhaps even a broken family support board.I don't mean to sound cruel, just logical...you're looking for advice in all the wrong places. Crazy, OCD, type-A personality, future lawyer types are NOT going to do you much good unless of course the question is how to make your sob story into a worthwile hardship addendum. Just my $0.02.
Thanks, I guess i'm scared to say who i am. my sister doesn't even know i exist and both her parents are still together and married, she knows about all the other siblings apart from me, i guess i feel like my psrent will hate me once they realize i contacted my sister. i don't have a phone number, address, or e-mail address for this parent, only a p.o box. i know that dont want contact with me. each letter says they want us to meet but it hasn't happened yet and i know that said parent has been in my area on many occasions. I found out I have another sister that lives in same area as me but she is older, not sure where she lives but somewhere in same town. i dont think she knows about me either. i guess maybe i should just leave well alone, i have written parent 5 times and have still not heard back. i go to mailbox everyday anxiously, its sad, kinda like waiting for ls letters, only the cycle never ends for me. i'm always hoping, looking, praying and a letter never comes. i think im hurting myself more this way. thanks for answering me though, it really hurts sometimes
