Welp. My “SIL” showed who she really was and that is a #Toxic and #Selfish person.
I had offered to help her with creating some digital documents to help her with the business she was starting, but when she started asking me how she could share the docs I told her that I had made them for HER and if she wanted to share them digitally then I should get compensated. She didn’t understand this and kept insisting she should be able to do what she wants with them. I finally told her she needed to print out the docs and share them that way since I was going to delete the digital versions after a few days, which I did.
Now she’s acting like I’m the one trying to pull one over on her and she’s the victim. I sent my husband over to pick up an item I had let her borrow and when he came back with it he was all upset at me for putting him in that position. He says that if I give something away I should consider it gone, even tho I explained to him several times that the item was never given to her. He supported me at first with the docs but now I don’t feel like I have his support. He was talking to his brother and he also seems to be unsupportive if either her or me. (I’m upset at him for a totally separate reason so I don’t care about his opinion but my husband does).
I feel that my intention was to help a family member but once I got burned by them I cut off any potential for them to do it again and now I’m being treated like the bad person for sticking up for myself and my boundaries. Now I have the “SIL” acting like I did something wrong to her and my husband upset because I made him be in the middle of it.
I just needed to vent and put this out into the universe. #ToxicPeople #SettingBoundaries #knowmyselfworth #IDeserveRespect
