Breaking the Silence

I had a long talk with my sister on the phone today. She's a single mom. She makes do on less income than Mr. Poorhouse and I make. She' s frugal, and she's not in debt. Her ex-partner has a compulsive spending problem.

I told her everything that's been going on. She didn't say this was all our fault. She didn't say I told you so. She just listened. She said she was sorry. She said it sounded awful. She said she was glad I told her.

What a great sister.

No need for shame or silence. People who love you love you regardless.
