I need an opinion call here... For years, my mother told me lies about our father. The worst lies a person can tell. She made us call him "the ex" and if we slipped and called him "dad" she would cry and retreat to her room. When my brother got older, he began working with our dad and let her know about it. He became the traitor, and was estranged from her because of it. She openly said she didn't trust him, that he would "share her personal information" with him. I, as an adult, have started a relationship with my father. I asked him about all the things she said, and he was open in his answers. She was lying, I saw proof! (i.e., he didn't pay child support or get insurance for us). He has been a big part of my life recently, I keep in touch with him and value his opinion. I have been keeping it a secret from my mom, because I don't want to lose her and become a "traitor." Do you think I should tell her? If so, how do I go about doing that without breaking her heart. Any advice?
