A Web of Lies and Broken Trust 😔

Our protagonist discovered that their family had been lying to them about their cat's death for over a week, even going as far as involving friends and relatives to maintain the deception. When the truth finally came out, the family defended their actions, saying they did it to protect them from failing their finals. Now, two years later, the trust between them and their family remains shattered. They're left wondering if they're in the wrong for not being able to trust their family anymore. Let's see how the internet feels about this heart-wrenching situation... 💔
