    hello all,
    a few years ago, I told my family that the wife of an uncle ignored me the whole time when I was living as a guest in their house. I think I was 12. BUT when I think about it, I realise that I may have misinterpreted her actions. Simply because she did not talk to me very much, I assumed she was also mad at me (there was an ongoing dispute between my siblings and her at the time). I may have linked her attitude to the argument and may have thought she involved me in it as well. HOWEVER, my siblings believed me and got mad.
    Now there is another argument between them and ever since, my siblings keep on bringing how that person has no shame 'involving a young child in a dispute between adults'.
    I feel uneasy whenever this is mentioned and I am scared that this might reach the uncle's wife ears. I interpreted everything in relation to the constant arguments and family feuds at the time and may have exaggerated something that was not worth it.
    So how - after 5 years - do I say that this is not exactly what happened in light of the resurgence of the topic?
    Please help me, I will pass for a liar and my family will think I just wanted to create more hatred.
    thanks

    but new disputes arose and this issue (about the uncle's wife ignoring me) has been brought back a few days ago!

    I live in constant fear that the said person might discover what I said about her (although she did some pretty awful things to my family, founding that I lied would discredit me forever).

    And those awful things she did would discredit her forever.

    Well you thought at the time that she was being horrible to you, didn't you? So she must have been at least slightly rude with you. So you could probably make the case that she had been horrible to you.

    Just prepare your argument really well. She sounds like a ***** anyway if she was acting weird with an 11 year old over an argument with the 11 year old's parents, so don't worry about being morally in the wrong.
