There is one member of my family who is a bit of a let-down. Actually - that's an understatement - in fact if I were to be brutally honest 'let-down' doesn't go half-way to accurately describing them. All my life I have wanted this person to 'step-up' and do the right thing - and all my life I have been disappointed. So....what's to do? Do you let the person know how you feel? or - do you accept things the way they are and graciously say nothing? Do I have the right to make my feelings known - or - just leave it alone? Recently this particular person did something that has staggered everyone who knows them - and I was simply left speechless (and that's practically impossible!) and aghast at their behaviour.
I am very fortunate in the fact that the rest of my family are lovely - and I have all the time in the world for all of them - so one bad apple in the barrel isn't that bad I don't suppose.
Bit disappointing though.
