The reason why I started hanging out with my parents again is because they started sending us random checks and talking about my trust fund and I felt indebted to them. But, I really did not want to accept those checks but people around me persuaded me to think that it was okay even though I knew that it wasn’t okay with me. And, I didn’t want to argue with anyone about this and how they are my “parents”, so it shouldn’t be a problem. I also didn’t want to have to go into detail about all of the reasons why this bothered me, so I just listened to other people over myself and I regret it. Plus, my mom kept offering to do all of these nice things for me and I caved because I’m so sick. I feel really terrible about it because they are such bad people, and I really don’t want anything to do with them. I’m not going to tolerate anyone trying to manipulating me any more though.
