so we all came to arizona for your mom’s birthday, as you probably know. and you didn’t, as we all obviously noticed. not only did you disrespect your mom and disregard her feelings, you also disregarded the entire family. i can’t even remember the last time we have all been together like that, and it’s really sad that you think so little of us that you can’t even show up for a few hours just to say hi. i’ve kept my mouth shut because i love your parents and they love you. but after last weekend, i feel obligated to tell you that i have no respect for you whatsoever. you don’t try to be a part of the family, and in the future, i think you’ll regret it. what makes me so sick is the way you treat your mom. she is one of the most loving, caring, hard-working people i know, and you don’t even know how good you have it. you make her feel like she failed. you hurt her so much and all they do is help. they are always there for you and you treat your mother like she’s nothing. i’m sorry that i had to tell you like this. maybe if you were there last weekend i could have told you in person. i just wanted you to hear this from someone because in spite of everything that you’ve done, everyone still loves you. you need to be brought back down to earth.
