Building Relationships or Not
I didn’t really form any close relationships with the siblings except for the young bio-sib. We remained close and continued to see and speak to each other on a regular basis. Grandma used to tell me that we looked like twins when we were babies. I seen pictures but I didn’t think so. I was one year and one month older, we had a lot of things in common and it was just easy for us to have conversations. With the other three, there was no real connection. By this time my step dad and I had been getting along fairly well and we were talking a lot more so it wasn’t too bad. He started to become the dad I never had. It’s weird but that’s how it was happening or at least what it seemed like to me. I was taking on more responsibilities at work and so that meant more hours which was kind of becoming overwhelming. I didn’t complain though, because that also meant more money in my pocket. It felt soooooo good to buy me nice things for once. I was proud of myself because I worked my butt off to get everything I had and wanted. I didn’t have to hear, “No”.
