LPT: Just because they are family, does not excuse their bad behavior. Cut them out of your life if you have to. Or at the very least, have as little contact as possible.

I've been screwed over by certain relatives before. Trying to help them, and they stabbed me in the back. Not fun. It does not excuse their behavior just because they're related to you. You don't need that in your life. Those few bad family members stole money from me, we moved away and gave them the place to live in, they screwed us over by not paying the rent, etc. They ended up going to jail for things that they had done. I love most of my family, some of them don't deserve a second chance. Doesn't matter if it's your mom/dad/sibling/cousin/grandparent, etc. They shouldn't treat others or you badly. Note cutting a person out of your life should be the last thing that they do. (That should be obvious). And it often is the last thing that they do because others treat them horribly). Verbal, manipulation, etc. Is still a thing in family members and shouldn't be allowed. I just find it so strange if I was with a partner or hanging out with friends who were bad influences people would tell me to stop hanging out/or being with that person. But because they're family, I'm supposed to let what they do slide. Shitty people are shitty people, and you shouldn't let that slide no matter what. submitted by /u/NotSoSnarky to r/LifeProTips [link] [comments]
