They say that to err is human and to forgive is divine, well I have made a lot of mistakes in my time but it seems that I am destined to not be forgiven. I am tired of turning the other cheek and saying I’m sorry, how about someone else having a go.
I have been estranged from my siblings for over ten years, in particular my brother, as I am gay. Now I have done nothing wrong here, I am still the same person, but because of my brother’s attitude to myself and Brian, it is us who is ostracised from family functions.
For the first time in over ten years we were all together a few weeks ago when our mother wa so ill, he would not even look at me. All I have heard from some of my relatives for years is pull your head in, your mother deserves to be able to have all her children together. I did that for her sake but it seems that my siblings are not prepared to do the same.
I visited Mum yesterday for Mother’s Day and checked her visitor’s book, it was then I found out there had been a family lunch to celebrate her recent birthday. I was not invited again. Do not ever tell me to pull my head in again.
To say I am hurt is an understatement, but I am not surprised. In the case of my brother me thinks thou protesteth too much. As for my sisters one just likes to say the right things but she is not prepared to go against the flow, as for the other, not worth mentioning.
