    Avoid The Drama

    I stopped hanging out with My family and I am so much better off, no more scolding, lectures about worshiping the union (I am not anti union but give it a rest) no more yelling at me in my own home. I did have to spend time with them last Sunday for a family get together but I...

    Avoid?

    I have no reasons to avoid my family.  Its not if I did anything to them.  If there's any avoidance is cause they may have done something to me and not me to her / him / them.

    They Dont Know What They Do

    My family really isn't so bad. They care for me and we hang out and have fun. But that's all there is. A family should be there for more than just the good times. Is a family not also a support system? My family refuses to acknowledge problems or negative feelings. My father is...

    Because they treat me like I don't belong.

    I'm 32 years old and successful in what I do. They live within minutes from where I live and couldn't be bothered to talk to me. They (my sister and dad) came to my wedding last Fall and for the first time I treated them like they were the outcasts. And that they're unimportant...

    I started avoiding my family

    even when we are living in the same house. Since my older brothers can't be responsible, I was the one to help out to keep everything together. My mom has a weak backbone, so technically she couldn't get my brothers to be mature even though they are in their mid-upper twenties...
