Day 16: Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it.
The ‘something difficult’ in my life right now is my estranged older sister.
We haven’t spoken for more than 2 years and this non-relationship is affecting everyone in the family.
I text her occasionally, not expecting a reply but as a reminder that she’s never far from my thoughts. Any chance I get, I try to reconnect with her. Most recently, I went to her house and left a note in her post box. I would’ve rung the bell but there wasn’t anyone home. Pretty soon, as a last resort, I may need to go to her house when she’s at home and make her talk to me.
Until then, I’ll continue to message her so that she remembers she has a family in me.
