not wanting to have any relation to my siblings.
I was never your typical book-smart student. My grades in primary school through secondary school were not great.
I got 168 for my PSLE and went to NA in a neighbourhood sec sch and for this, I was constantly bullied by my siblings, yes.. my very own siblings, for having poor grades.
They constantly called me names such as the 168 girl, NA retard etc. All in front of my parents. What pisses me off and scars me till this day is that my parents did NOTHING about this. All they said is “Transfer to Express stream and they will stop.” I honestly still hold a grudge against my parents for not doing anything about the bullying I faced from my siblings.
Of course when I stepped into Secondary school, my self-confidence plummeted like mad. I became very withdrawn and I hated socialising with people.
Went to poly, started doing better…. average GPA of 3.4, went to Uni and now doing my postgrad.
A series of events happened over the past few years with my siblings and my parents have been trying to persuade me to step in to talk to them and advice them. However, I refuse to. I do not want to have any relation to them. Neither do I want to have anything to do with them.
Over the years I was met only with hostility and they did jack shit to help me so now I am thinking, why should I?
So, am I being an asshole/petty for not wanting to have any relation to them?
Here are what netizens think:
- Do what makes you happy. The fact that your parents did not do their duty of protecting their child makes it worse. All the best, man.
- U were all young, all were not taught well, even some parents were not taught well for their own parents. Now u r all grown-up, received good education, hope these education had taught u well in morals besides getting good grades for yr job. Make a change, improve yr relationship with yr family n fellow humans. Learn to forgive , it will help u find joy in yr remaining life.
