Oh, get over yourself!
How many times have you heard that in your life?
Well, hopefully not THAT often, but sometimes people need to be put in their places, if you know what I’m saying…
Check out this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page and let us know if you think this person was out of line for scolding their daughter.
AITA for telling my daughter to get over herself?
“I was blessed with three beautiful children and unfortunately, my eldest, Brooke, passed away when she was 5 years old. It rocked my world and I know I haven’t been the same since. I went through therapy and still attend to this day, but a part of me d**d too.
I will never let my daughter be forgotten. I bring pictures of her to events such as holiday celebrations and birthdays. I talk about her all the time. Every year on my living children’s birthdays, I think of her and how her once younger siblings are now older than her.
My daughter, Marnie, is getting married next month. I asked her if she was having a memorial table and she said no. I asked her about creating a seat for her sister who passed, as she should be a part of the day. Marnie told me no, for once she wants a day about her.
She says she couldn’t have one event that wasn’t about Brooke. Even her graduation, I had put a picture of her on the seat. She said I needed to stop making my grief “front stage”.
I told her she was being incredibly selfish and until she goes through a loss like this, she’ll never understand. Marnie asked me if her kids would have to live under the shadow of Brooke too. I told her she should be ashamed and to get over herself.
My son says I’m being terrible and I need to re-evaluate my life. AITA?”
