Here it’s been about 10 years since my sister, Kathy, became aware that I knew too much about her activities and she immediately made me her number one victim, and with my other siblings joining, destroyed my character. There’s been no communication between us for years. Out of my entire family, only my son and eldest aunt will speak with me.
Last week, I was talking with my aunt and out of the blue she said, “I don’t know what’s going on with Kathy. We were talking the other day and she told me to take you out of my will. I asked why? Kathy gave some weak answer, so I told her outright I was not taking you out of my will … and then she went ballistic. She was yelling at me like no one had ever done. She really upset me. But a couple days later, Kathy called me and she was back to her charming self.”
Over three years ago this same aunt wouldn’t speak to me because of the lies Kathy fabricated about me. But she was adopted and does not have the family’s ‘bad’ gene, so we began talking together again and have been on a regular basis. I did my best to explain to her that it wasn’t her “charming self” that called her back, but it was her fake persona, and she slipped out of it for some reason when she went ballistic … probably because she couldn’t have her way. I explained to her that she finally saw the real Kathy that I’ve known all my life.
I know it was tough for her to understand, since she only experienced it that one time. But I believe the subject matter made her see it differently. It was an outright attack on me, and my aunt and I get along probably better than my siblings do with her.
Even when there is silence and distance between a psychopath and their victim, you can never let your guard down. I wage my skirmishes with her and my siblings via psychology. For example, whenever one of my siblings asks my aunt how I’m doing, she always says, “Great.” It must piss them off big time.
Addendum: It really does continue for life, especially if family members are involved. See above where I said my eldest aunt still talks to me on a regular basis. That all changed this past weekend when I called her and she said she could not talk to me anymore. Apparently, my sister Kathy felt as if we were talking too much, and planned an assault. When I called my aunt last night, she hung up on me. I just can’t imagine what lies Kathy said to my aunt, but I would imagine they were very malicious.
