🎭 Get ready for a rollercoaster ride of family drama, favoritism, and heartbreak! 💔 17-year-old me has been dealing with a wicked stepgrandma who treats me like an outsider while showering my siblings with lavish gifts and luxurious vacations. 🏝️ My only solace? My amazing granddad who always made time for me... until he passed away last autumn. 😢 Now, with a birthday looming and the prospect of being all alone, I'm wondering if I'm the a**hole for asking my mum to skip the family trip and stay with me. 🙏 Buckle up, because this story is about to get emotional! 😭
