Have you cut a shitty sibling out of your life?

Answered 12 days ago

My sister is a bad egg. She’s done drugs. Stolen from family and been involved in some really shifty stuff. Anyone else have a shitty sibling and have you cut them out of your life? My house was robbed and i was told she had something to do with it, though she swears black and blue otherwise. She’s seriously just a typical no good person and i’m over it!!

Install cameras.
Never invite her over
Cut contact no calls, texts, emails, letters, skype nothing. Go cold turkey.
Dont ask about her to anyone and change the subject people will get the point eventually or spell it out. "I no longer consider ..... family I dont discuss her nor wish to hear what .... is doing"

I had to completely cut ties with my brother, after he became addicted to ice, and became extremely volatile, unpredictable and violent. He assaulted my beautiful mum and myself. I saw my mum thrown on the ground, kicked, punched, choked, spat on, threatened to burn the house down etc. she was black and blue from head to toe. He smothered her with a rolled up towel, (she was chronic asthmatic)
I managed to escape and call police from a neighbours house. I’ve had an AVO for the last 7 years and haven’t spoken to him since.
My beautiful mum sadly passed away almost 2 years ago, but this horrific situation is still fresh in my mind. Sorry I probably should have put a trigger warning on this…
But just because someone is blood, doesn’t mean you have to cop abuse, and toxic behaviour. I’ve never been able to forgive him, and still suffer from anxiety and PTSD

I'm so sorry this happened to you and your lovely Mum.

Yep....broke my Mum's heart, but it broke her heart more that he done what he done. She wore a lot of unnecessary blame\shame for the whole incident.
I will say, in my experience, it doesn't stop you being angry and it doesn't stop others from talking to you to you about them...

My sister is a compulsive liar, "borrowed'' money from my nan (a pensioner) to set herself and her children up after her divorce and many years later didn't come to that nan's funeral. Wasn't good to her kids and as result they probably have no hope in this world. My own parents have cut her off after putting up with years of crap it just doesn't end. It makes me sad sometimes but we're probably better off 🤨

Basically my whole family after my sister demanded that I give her $3,000 for an overseas trip and I refused. I said no and it got messy, so I walked away from them.
They are not the kind of people I want around my kids.
Unfortunately they still only contact me when they want something.

I cut my SIL out completely. Won’t even acknowledge her if she was next to me. It took years of her crap to get to this point. eg ~ announcing she was pregnant (8 weeks) at my wedding, then making a huge deal out of it all night, to complete strangers to her.
~ a member of the family was diagnosed with late stage cancer, and SIL the NEXT DAY after the family was told, announced her dr thought she had a heart issue that could be serious. Turned into nothing.
~at another family wedding told everyone she was separating from her husband, (never happened)
~ announced her 2nd pregnancy at a funeral
~ at a mile stone birthday event, stood in the corner crying as loud as possible till she got noticed. Her husband (poor bugger) just walked as far away from her as possible. She continued till someone consoled her. I mean loud. Could hear her over the chatter and music at a bar!
~ the same week I had my first baby, announced she was pregnant again
It goes on and on. 15 years of it, as really added up.

Glad it’s not just me - my house was robbed about 15 years ago and I’m 100% confident it was my sister and her partner that was behind it. I’ll never outwardly accuse/confront them out of protection and respect of my parents (they are well aware of their issues but still choose to find the good from her) but I certainly don’t go out of my way to contact her. She may have seen it as a victimless crime due to insurance but it riddled me with anxiety for a long time

My brother is a scumbag. I let him live with me when he got out of prison for some drug fuelled stupidity. I forgave his stupid choices, gave chances.. Then he stole from my kids. Kicked him out and haven't spoken to him since.

Cut my brother off when I turned 26. Never spoke to him again and he died when I was 52. It was the right decision as he was physically violent and manipulative and was not going to change. I never met his children and don’t intend to.
