Over the last year and a half, my family was rocked by catastrophic change with the passing of our maternal rock, mother, Nana, and best friend.
A mere year and a half later, our grandfather is marrying a woman he met just six months after losing his wife of over forty years.
Since then, she has moved in to my childhood family home, has thrown away lots of memories, treasures and keepsakes of my grandmother's and taken down all of the pictures of my mother and I. On top of that, I go weeks and weeks at a time without hearing from my grandfather who raised me since birth. It would appear that this new woman is trying to phase me out completely.
Although I've moved out into my own apartment with my boyfriend, I feel as though a great unjustice has occured. Is it wrong to be so upset that I've been completely removed from the house I grew up in? How do I approach the topic without a) losing my cool and b) severing ties for good?
