Three years later, she and I had a showdown, but until then, I tried not to meet her where she was and to take the high road. For the record, fuck the high road. After years of emotional and verbal abuse, as well as spreading vicious and dangerous lies to try to make the entire family hate me, I finally told her off and it was one of the best days of my life. Afterward, it was amazing how much respect she gave me. I learned a valuable lesson for sure.
