You can’t handle the truth!
Well, it’s true, right?
Some folks just can’t handle it for one reason or another…
So is this woman wrong for telling her grandmother why she really moved away?
Take a look at her story and see what you think.
AITA for telling my gran the real reason I moved away?
“I (f31) grew up in a small village surrounded by other small villages. My family on my mums side all live within 10 minutes of each other and we are all very close.
I now stay in a village that’s almost an hours drive away, I moved in with my dad when I was 21 and got a good job here so I bought my first home here. Now my dad’s moved away and for the last couple of years I’ve been feeling extremely lonely.
I’m too far away that my family never come and visit me, and I’m too far away that I don’t get included in last minute plans. My aunt, gran and younger cousin (f23) are forever going out for lunch or coffee but I never get invited to these outings. Of course any significant family event I’m there for.
So the other day I was through visiting my gran and I was talking to her about how I feel sometimes. My gran said she could understand and she wished I had never left our home town but that had been my choice. I told her it was hardly my choice when I was the one who was kicked out my home.
I only moved in with my dad because I had nowhere else I could go. My gran asked what I meant and I told her my stepdad had kicked me out when I was 21 so I didn’t have a choice and I had to move in with my dad. She went quiet and didn’t bring it up again but later on that night I got a really angry phone call from my mum asking why I was bringing up something that happened 10 years ago. I asked my mum why she had lied in the first place.
My gran got upset with my mum for covering up the fact my stepdad kicked me out of the home I’d grown up in and lied to the rest of the family about it. So AITA for telling the truth?”
And here’s what Reddit users had to say.
One reader said she’s NTA and it wasn’t up to her to keep up lies for other people.
This individual also said the actions of the other people were very shortsighted.
And this Reddit user said she’s NTA and she was just stating facts.
