My family knows we are to have no contact since 2010 when they were deported by the Peruvian police from for church fraud involving money laundering through their church there for a corrupt politician. In addition to being shameful church crooks, they're violent in the home, too, even on Christmas visits as their adult children. Dad is an untreated bipolar and mom has borderline personality disorder. They are impossible to love up close, only from a safe distance.
They are incorrigible, though, obviously, and so it comes as no surprise that now that word got around that I just retired from college teaching down here to Mexico, they'd try to horn in. As usual, they used an innocent friend as a go between, this time email via a good buddy who was a teacher at my college. I had to go through the awkward exercise of explaining to him that they're not supposed to be contacting me, something they've known for 11 years.
It sucks to have to go through this with these dirty low life characters every time I make a happy and clean life transition. Support welcome.
I have read the disturbing info out there on this "no contact" craze that I think is permeating society. I would like to know what you think about this and what your experiences have been with this.I suspect my son might have fallen for this nonsense and cut off his parents first, then the rest of the family. I think he gets some type of perverse pleasure in this somehow. Perhaps he enjoyed...
I started my new job today, granted it is just orientation and then training but hey, hooooray!! I am so excited! I will be a cashier at Lowe's and I'm thinking that this is going to be way easier on my body. The hours are low, about 20-24 a week, so I'm thinking that my psyche will have an easier time with it as well. I have tried full time, work your butt off, jobs and have come out of it sick...
