I stated one thing I should not have, and it fueled a feud

Expensive Amy: I’ve brought about an enormous rift in our household.

I used to be supposed to maintain a secret for “Niece A” and unintentionally blurted it out at a household operate.

This led to “Niece B” operating out and shopping for a home earlier than Niece A did, which upstaged Niece A, inflicting her to be very upset.

Then I informed Niece A that the home Niece B purchased was crap (a foreclosures), not understanding that B’s father was standing proper behind me.

Now each households are upset with me.

I’ve apologized and tried to make amends with Niece A, however she is standoffish, and her dad and mom are upset with me.

I’m very upset with myself for letting the cat out of the bag for Niece A, however clearly I had no concept that B would upstage her like that.

The 2 households have been jealous of one another for a very long time. When there’s a household get-together, there may be a whole lot of pressure. The 2 cousins keep away from one another and don’t look like talking.

I really feel that is all my fault, although the stress has been constructing for years between the 2 households.

How do I repair this?
