    My family HAD a tradition of always getting dressed up, going out, relaxing, and enjoying a good meal without all the work. A family friend's daughter, from out of state, announced 3 years ago that she wanted to host Thanksgiving at the family friend's house. The first year was...

    My father & his wife really like to have guests

    over at their house, either with my brothers, or her children, or her friends or family members. Before I moved out of their house, I was always forced to attend their get-togethers, and I have always hated them. I am an extremely private person. I get anxiety when I am in...

    I hate family reunions, ughh they are so happy and full of joy.  I prefer to be locked in my room that be surrounded by noisy, gossip, liars,  religious obsessed, posers manipulators etc etc.

    Its my grandpa's birthday

    and I'd love to go. He was a good man and always nice to me. I actually live with him so I don't have a choice. It's a rather long and complicated story. The thing that bugs me about it is I know my aunt and uncle will be there. I can't stand them at all. They are completely...

    Sometimes. . .
