    I hate family gathering

    because I always feel left out. I am the quiet one who never says a word but likes to observe all the time. I like to see family but I always feel out of place. My mom will always talk about my sister and her family and everything good about them. If my sister is there she gets...

    Makes Me Feel Ashamed.....

    I always come away from family gatherings feeling really depressed. I am almost 26, still living at home as I can't afford to move out, single, no friends and so virtually a non existent social life. I hate seeing my relatives and them asking if anyone is on the scene or am I...

    Always Have

    I've always hated family gatherings. I've always been the "black sheep" and always will be. They make me uncomfortable in a big way, and I don't feel connected to them. We just had one and I wish I hadn't even gone.

    It's A Bit Awkward Now

    Ever since my mother went around telling every soul in our family about my being locked up in an asylum (as well as the sordid details and circumstances in which it happened and the events that led up to it), family gatherings have been a bit awkward. Sure, we have some unstable...

    Too Stressful

    I have a dreaded family gathering this week. I am expecting the day to be full of stress and strained overly polite smiles (not just from me) while I wait for it all to be over with, and I can get myself away and go home. When I say "family" I mean people I am related to. I don't...

    Wanna Know How My Family Gathering Went Tonight?

    Well, I'll tell you.First, my parents came over. The plan was that my parents, along with my brother and myself, would do our individual grocery shopping together, then hang out at my house (since I only see my father about once or twice a year). All started out well, until my...
