"Several people have given me advice on how to handle my issue with her.

I won't allow her to continue to bring me misery and interfere with living my life. I won't allow her to continue to manipulate my feelings.

Growing up, she terrorized my entire family so severely that I've always been frightened of her.

I need to understand that she can't control me now that I'm no longer terrified.
