Am I selfish?

Just the other day, my cousin in law signified her interest to move to our other house (we have three hosues). That house is where she and her family used to live for free when the agreement was she is to pay a rent of only 1500. Now that house is being rented by another family for 5500. 5500 is a big amount of money for my mom she uses it to buy her medicines. My cousin in law said that she can pay the monthly rent but I doubt it. When she left that house, with her are numerous debts she owed my mom, our neighbors, my brother. Aside from debts, she left the house, "unlivable" --meaning the house were like all messed up. We spent a lot of money renovating that house. My mom was really disappointed and stressed out. Now she is contemplating on living on that house again. I'm afraid she can talk my mom on letting her live there and history might repeat itself. She really gets to my nerve. One more reason I don't like her there is that she's a gossip, she spreads rumors like fire. And whats worse, she does'nt spare me, nor my mom, nor my brother from her rumors. Am I selfish or what?

oh that's not a good history. You might as well tell them its already occupied and tell your mom not to accept it as it will just missed up again. You will be having headaches again. It does not mean people do not change. Maybe they are not the same as what they are before but its better to be that way. Your just protecting your own interest that is to have a peace of mind. Your not selfish my darling. You just express what you feel.

the nerve!!! if she doesn't treat you like family, then why be kind to her? I'm sure this is not about the money and the debts. Your cousine-in-law is a parasite. She is not even your blood relative so why extend so much help to her! let her find another place to live in so your mom won't have any problems.
