My step dad tried to screw my 27 year old sister.
He sent her explicit messages in the middle of the night while my mother slept. I received a call from my sister in the middle of the night completely traumatized and asking me how she could possibly tell my Mom that her husband had tried to screw her daughter.
Despite showing my Mom the messages, she decided to stay with him. I am the only person in my family who cut him out of my life, even my sister has “moved on for the sake of the family”.
I can’t pretend it never happened. It makes me sick despite it being almost 2 years since it happened.
- My mom did the same. My stepfather told me when I was 22 that he felt attracted to me, he got married with my mom when I was 12. I told her, they got separated for some months but she gave him another opportunity. I left home , and I had to keep with this person my entire life. I don’t have advice but just leave that home.
- Someone that’s that desensitized to something that awful has had their basic standards of decency eroded over a long period of time. Monsters love their enablers and enablers love them back. That’s the pact. If you’re not on board with it you’re out of the fold and on your own.
