The Rare Norm a few months ago Share Tweet Pin Share Yeah, why people don’t realize this is a mystery to me. It sucks, but as long as you’re not dependent on them, treat them like you would a shitty friend. My mom was really shitty for a while. Went through a divorce, etc. etc. and she started treat my siblings and me like garbage. I didn’t talk to her for three years, while my sisters kept taking the abuse. Bonus: Want to stay up to date on our latest Rare Norm news ? She got better and we reconncected after she dealt with her crap but she actually treats me and my family with respect now because she knows I’ll dip out without a second thought but still has drama and some spats with my siblings. Whodathunk having consequences for your actions was a thing.
