My sister is pregnant. If you'll recall, she couldn't bother to tell me herself so I found out from my mom.
The elephant in the room was still present until earlier this month. The same sister who couldn't bother to tell me herself that she is pregnant managed to publicly announce on social media.
I was pissed and I was hurt.
I sent her a text. It wasn't accusatory or anything like that, but it was very direct and expressed my hurt that she could announce it publicly but couldn't send me a courtesy text.
Some time passed, though not as long as I expected, and she responded. She didn't know how to tell me. She didn't want to hurt me. Blah blah blah.
Translation: My infertility makes her uncomfortable. And she is selfish.
And when called out on it, she makes it about how she feels.
I just want to scream that it's not just about her and that I shouldn't have to ignore my feelings because of her.
I'll see her for the first time since (not) telling me about her pregnancy over the weekend. She's excited. I'm indifferent. I'm still miffed about her non-apology. It'll be interesting, that's for sure.
