This Daughter Was Stunned When She Found Out Her Mother Stole Her Dead Father’s Locket and Replaced His Photos with Those of Her Step-Family

A woman recently stopped talking to her mother after she secretly snuck photos of her stepdad and half-siblings inside the precious locket her dead father gave her. Here’s what the fuming 19-year-old had to say:

The Locket Was Sentimental

The young woman explained, “When I was 5, my dad bought me a locket with pictures of him, my mom, my older sister, and my older brother. Tragically, when I was 7, my dad and sister both died in a car accident. My locket became something treasured that I wore all the time and didn’t care if it was a formal event or not.”

Her Mom Remarried

When the daughter was eight, her mother remarried a man named Jeff, who had a one-year-old son named Nathan from a previous relationship. 

The mother and Jeff soon had two daughters together. The locket was well-known among the family members, as they often saw her wearing it and knew of its sentimental value. 

You Could Add More Photos

The locket had the capacity to add more sections for additional photos, but she chose not to do so, wanting to keep it for the people she considered her original core family.

Her mother asked her a couple of times to add Jeff, Nathan, and her two step-sisters to the locket, but she always declined. 

They Bought Her a New Locket

When she was 16, her mother and Jeff bought her a new locket with their photos in it. However, she never wore the new locket, opting instead to keep it in her jewelry box.

“There were some comments and tensions that I never wore the new one. My half-sisters were upset about me not changing which one I wore all the time,” she recalled.

They Didn’t Understand

When the daughter tried to explain her decision, stating that the original locket was special, her half-sisters argued that the new one was more special because it included them. 

Her mother and Jeff were also annoyed and disappointed at her behavior.

She Was Staying With Her Brother

By age 19, the woman lived in a small apartment while her brother lived with his girlfriend. A few weeks prior, she stayed at her brother’s house for the weekend. 

One morning, she noticed her locket had been moved. Upon returning home a couple of days later, she discovered that someone had removed her father’s photo and tried to add Jeff, Nathan, and the girls. 

Her Mom Called Her Selfish

Angry, she called her mother and asked if she knew anything about it. Her mother responded by accusing her of being “selfish and inconsiderate” and claiming that she had “broken their hearts for the last three years” by favoring one locket and family over the other.

Her mother then hung up the phone on her.

The daughter tried to calm down and went to her mother and stepdad’s house to confront them about the situation. She told them they had no right to touch her locket, but Jeff argued that they had every right to show a more accurate representation of her family. 

He added that she was hurting Nathan and the girls by wearing the locket that excluded them.

The daughter continued, “I lost it. I told them they did not have that right, and they do not get to tell me who I carry around in my locket or not. I told Jeff he would never be deserving of a spot, told Mom she had lost her spot, and then I left, saying they needed to stay the hell away from me.”

Her Brother Supported Her

The woman’s brother sided with her, expressing disbelief at their actions and telling their mother to accept that they didn’t feel the way she wanted them to feel. 

The mother and Jeff accused the daughter of being a terrible person. Her mom even claimed that since her father had bought the locket while they were married, she had every right to interfere with it.

Was She Justified?

Now that she is not speaking to most of her family members, the woman feels misunderstood and angry at what her mom did and said.

She sought advice from the Reddit community on whether she was in the wrong for reacting so passionately because she didn’t believe in her heart that she was.

People Responded

One person wrote, “It’s emotional abuse. I don’t think it has anything to do with the locket. They want to control how she feels about her family. They want to be complete replacements.”

Another was outraged, “It is disgusting that they would even touch something so precious that belongs to you. I am very sorry for your loss.”
