Giving Up the Advantage

Bridgette Picou.I got taken advantage of recently in a major hurtful way and I can't seem to let it go. I already know my inability to do so is about the manifestation of (other) things that are out of control in my life. Still fucking stings though. I'm a Scorpio. We are known for grudges, lol.

Without going into a lot of detail, my mom passed away recently and the funeral home (whom you want to be able to trust) took advantage of our grief and forced us into a position of having to come up with considerable funds the day before my mother's funeral, while the entire time we were working with them (over a period of 3 weeks) acting as though they were following through on their part so exactly this situation wouldn't happen. They were deliberately deceptive, and the lack of decency was scary. It came down to having to come up with this money or having them cancel my mother's funeral service the day before it was to happen. Actually, less than a day. Can you imagine the enormity of the idea of canceling a funeral the day before? No time to notify people. The preparations and effort, the money and energy spent to make it happen. As I said, I don't want to go into too many details, but the whole thing was traumatizing and has left me with unresolved anger and anxiety.
