life advice (post new situation)
My sis cut ties with my parents and myself 8 years ago and i have beed hearing my mom and dad cry for her for all these years. I have been in the habbit of sugar coating bad news ever since this has happened. I now have found myself have all the bad news has piled up so much I am about to explode. I feel like i am in such a bad place that i cant get out. Now deep in debt and about to loose my business I want to talk to them soo bad but am so scared that they wont be able to handle the truth.

You matter
You need to reconnect with your parents and flat out tell them everything.
You can't change your sister but you can be the daughter your parents need. A real person with real needs . Parents need to be needed and love to give advice. Ask for it. Don't lie or try and make it less thanit is. BUT be responsible and make attempts to do things right and do whatever you have to do to get back on track. You should have never gotten in this situation in the first place. It is a growing lesson and you will learn and do better from now on.
