Sisterly Strife

Last night my youngest sister and I got into an argument, on Facebook of, all places.

I mean really? We are both grown adult women who should know better. Apparently we don’t.

This argument is still heavy on my shoulders this morning. I figured I would do what most people do when they are dealing with a conflict and blog about it. Don’t worry, no one reads my blog. I am good.

My sister is in a pretty new relationship. Last night on Facebook she posted the first “public” picture of her and her new boyfriend. I made the comment on how her boyfriend resembles our stepfather.

You would have thought I just accused him of bringing Ebola to the United States with the sole intention of infecting everyone.

Seriously, all I said was he looks like our stepdad. The same stepdad who she lives with by the way.

But the clincher for me was when she publicly called me out on Facebook, all for seeing a resemblance between her boyfriend and our stepdad. Again, it was not an insult.

My sisters ex is also on Facebook. This is the baby daddy of her only son. The Ex has an issue with paying child support. Go figure.

All I will say is if my sister put as much emotion toward her ex as she did with me last night, then perhaps she would have child support.

So, I vented. I feel slightly better. Things were still left unsaid, but I suppose in due time when emotions have calmed, we will move on.

All I am interested in right now is moving forward within myself. I have to. I am at that point in life where that is all I can do. Just keep moving ahead. Admit when I am wrong, stand my ground when I feel I am right, and take it day by day.

Also, Vodka never hurts.
