It takes a special kind of jerk to abuse and neglect their own children, and it takes a special kind of brave for kids that grow up in such homes to move on and thrive in adulthood.
We just found the ultimate payback from a Reddit user who says she was tormented by her parents growing up. They had the gall to demand an invitation to her wedding, and you are going to love how she responded.
A Reddit user named Alyssa Pearce recently made a post that is going viral, and for good reason.
The twenty three year old Pearce claims that she spent years suffering “physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of two people who were supposed to love and cherish me. So my narcissistic parents abused me for 16 years before I ran away from home. Now they’re trying to bully their way (via family, they haven’t bothered to speak to me personally) into getting an invitation to my wedding. There was really only one way to respond.”
She then explains that, after another family member harassed her about inviting her parents she snapped. Her solution was brilliant.
“So I went home and wrote my parents the de-invitation. I opened up a word document, found the nicest calligraphy font I could, loaded up the printer with some of the lovely parchment paper left over from the other invitations, and wrote. I then found a nice matching envelope, addressed it with a fancy gold pen, and posted it. I mean, if you’re going to send someone a memorable ‘stuff you,’ you’ve really got to put in some effort. You may as well go all-out.”
And just what did her un-invitation say to her parents?
“Together with our friends and family, Alex and Alyssa would like to invite you to suck it and bask in our happiness, your bitterness, and our mutual irritation at each other’s existence, as we completely ignore yours and celebrate our marriage without you. There will be a lovely ceremony, followed by cake, food, and general merriment, and you are not invited to any of it. Because **** you, that’s why”
Since she posted the comment and a picture of the actual un-invite, her post has gone viral. Everyone who has read it sees how amazingly resilient she is and many have used social media to show their support for her, saying things like:
