A young woman sparked outrage and debate among Redditors after she exposed her half-sister’s lies about their childhood. The aftermath has been explosive for both women. Here is the full story.
He’s Their Common Bond
OP is a 24-year-old woman with a 27-year-old half-sister. They share the same father but have different mothers.
She Lived in Dread
From the time she was born until she was five, OP lived in dread of the weekends.
That’s when her dad would bring her half-sister home for his weekly visitation with her.
She Was a Troublemaker
Every time the older girl showed up, she spent her time bullying OP.
Even if their parents kept the two girls apart, OP’s half-sister would break her stuff and lie about her to get her in trouble.
It Was a Time Bomb
And every weekend, OP’s parents would end up in a shouting match with her half-sister’s mom when she came to pick the girl up.
It was extremely stressful, and OP would start crying when her dad even mentioned the half-sister’s name.
Her Death Changed Everything
Things got a whole lot more tense when OP’s half-sister was 11.
That year, her mother died, which set off a family firestorm that’s still burning.
No One Wanted Her
Though he looked for other alternatives because of the rift between the girls, OP’s dad had no choice but to take custody of his older daughter.
There was no one in either his or his ex’s family who wanted the girl.
She Wanted Out
When OP heard that her sister was coming to live with them, she came unglued.
She spent hours screaming about it and even called her grandparents to ask them to come and get her.
She Wasn’t Welcome With Them
OP’s mom also didn’t want any part of raising her stepdaughter.
She’s Trying to Protect Her
She had watched the girl torment her own daughter for years and didn’t want them under the same roof.
They Got a Break From Each Other
So, facing pressure from all sides, OP’s father sent his older daughter to boarding school.
She went to stay with other members of her dad’s family during school breaks, so the two girls hardly ever saw each other.
They Still Couldn’t Get Along
Then, OP’s parents got divorced when she was 14.
The two girls started running into each other during visitation with their dad, but there was no bullying.
They argued quite a bit, but both had grown up a lot, too.
Their Worlds Collided
Now, several years later, the two women have landed in the same town as adults.
OP didn’t run into her half-sister right away, but she did meet the other girl’s boyfriend and some of his friends.
Across a Crowded Room
Recently at a party, though, OP saw her half sister as soon as they walked in.
Facing the Unexpected
They made eye contact and waved to each other, but that was the end of their interaction.
They Were Uncomfortable
During conversation with some mutual friends later that night, one of them asked OP how she knew the other woman.
When she said they were half sisters, everyone in the group got quiet and fidgety.
She Blamed Them for Everything
OP wanted to know what was going on, and they said that her half sister had told them all about her childhood.
How OP and her mother had forced her dad to send the older girl away to boarding school and cut all ties.
She Was Homeless
According to the friends, the half sister had said that OP made her homeless as a kid.
She Spilled the Beans
OP couldn’t let that slide and decided to set the record straight!
She told the group of friends that her half sister’s bullying was the reason her mom wouldn’t let her stay with the family.
He Made a Tough Choice
OP’s dad could have taken in his older daughter anyway, but his wife would have left and taken OP with her.
They All Turned on Her
A couple of days later, OP’s half sister called her up to chew her out for spilling the beans about their relationship.
Her group of friends had turned on her, and she was concerned that the truth might even impact her job.
Was She Out of Line?
OP can’t see any way she is at fault for whatever problems her former bully is experiencing, but other people in her life are telling her she was too harsh.
Now, she wonders if she did something wrong.
It Was Ancient History
Redditors are somewhat split on this story. Some think OP was out of line for bringing up ancient history, and they don’t see much difference between her version of events and her half-sister’s version.
But others think OP was fully justified for exposing the truth. They say that the step-sister brought all her problems on herself when she bullied OP for years.
