I apologize in advance if this is lengthy and/or unclear. I just need to get it off of my chest.
My bf and I just moved to FL, where I have some family. My uncle (mom’s brother) and his wife (Aunt A) live right down the road, so we stop by for dinner from time to time. Today at dinner, we were discussing emotional/verbal abuse for some reason. During this conversation, Aunt A turns to me and goes “Well your father emotionally abused your entire family for years.”
I. can’t. even. My father has been my father forever, and he was NEVER emotionally abusive. To any of us. He had some issues from an extremely troubled upbringing, but I can safely say that he was a wonderful father and continues to be. I straight up told her that I didn’t agree, and couldn’t even see how she would come to that conclusion. She went on to say it was just by “running his mouth”. EXCUSE ME?! You’re going to accuse my father of actual abuse and back it up with that?
I honestly wanted to hit her. I dropped the subject and left shortly after, but I can’t shake my anger. I don’t even want to bring it up to my mother because I don’t want to upset her. What a c-word.
