I am punishing myself too that I taught you that everything is about XYZ. You have a father and mother as well. I cannot tell you how embarrassed I am that my child cannot come to a family wedding for 24 hours. Yes, I know school starts 10 days later and of course you will be away from XYZ for 24 hours. However, I have never turned you down on any issue and my brother will be very upset the family is not there. You have to do what you have to do and I am not telling you “no wedding…no rent”. I am telling you I am ashamed of myself and your father for not teaching you that favors go both ways. I will help you this month and that is it.
I love you and need you in my life and you can be as angry as you wish……I am not only angry on many issues but feel so let down that I did not teach you that if you are given you must give back. Teach XYZ PLEASE what I have told you….family comes first and to think ahead, I love you and will let you know how we want to pay the rent this month.
Send me the name and address as to where the rent should go. I will mail the $ . I am not ASHAMED OF you…just some of your decisions. I was angry about you not wanting to make the time to go and said those foolish words to you………………you know I want you there. You can come in Sat. Morn and drive my car up there yourself (We are leaving Fri.) and then drive back Sunday Morn and go home……24 hours.
I AM NOT ASHAMED OF YOU…..Do not put words in my mouth. Perhaps you give back but not to me on issues you know damn well are important to me.
I love you
