    You always know how best to act at that moment. 😌 They may be back because of a need or because they genuinely want to make it up to you. Make sure you are aware of the reason and decide how to react based on your assessment. One rule is to always forgive them regardless of what they did but you do not have to let them back into your life if they are negative and can cause more trouble than good. A good way to check this is by asking your siblings whose judgment you trust or even giving them time because sooner or later the true colors are revealed. Meanwhile be careful as you may not know how to draw the line when it comes to family.

    That's if you value your peace. Stay distant unless they have fully changed and you won't be getting into any childhood trauma by reconciliation.

    Our parents don’t owe us perfection. We are lucky if they were good and it’s unfortunate if they are bad. What’s done is done and once you’re out of their care, it is your responsibility to heal and build yourself. Sadly, the first step to building self may involve forgiveness to evil parents which helps you release gbe burden of hate you may have and embrace who you truly are. If can do all this without going back into thir life, even better. If you need to reconnect, then make sure you are whole before confronting them or offering to help them in any way.
