Long overdue decision


I asked Matt earlier to behave like an adult and let him and I sit down and see if we cannot sort out his financial mess. He refused point blank. I had already made the decision that this was to be his last chance.

Because he said that I have said he cannot come on holiday with us and has to move out by August 25th and have given him that notice in writing as well.

He reckons there is no point in talking about it as he has no control over his spending so there is nothing to be done.

I have asked him to give the phone he currently has to Deej and it is actually his on loan to Matt.

Both Jonny and James have said they’ll still be going regardless of whether Matt is.

You know, it’s a horrible thing for a parent to have to kick their child out of their house and potentially their lives. I just cannot see matters improving if he stays here, indeed, they’ll just get worse. Maybe the threat of being homeless when he doesn’t pay any rent to the council and being declared bankrupt will bring him to his senses. As it is, he steals off me in the same way as if he took the money from my wallet and he tells me lies to the point I don’t know what to believe any more. I didn’t know there was such a thing as compulsive spending but if there is, Matt has it.

    Sometimes tough love has to prevail in order for those we love to hit rock bottom to enable them to learn. Wishing both Matt and yourself well during this trying time.
