My sister's birthday is tomorrow; we don't really have a functional relationship, should I contact her?
My immediate family has grown apart over the past many years; to be more specific, I pretty much been disowned or have disassociated myself from them after years of abuse and unfair judgement and hypocrisy. My birthday passed in September and I had no birthday wishes from any of them, my sister in particular could have easily reached out on FB with a generic "Happy Birthday", though she did not. It's as though I don't exist to them, and in many ways I consider them dead to me. I could be the bigger person and extend the courtesy, but should I feel obligated to or even care to? Thanks in advance for your feedback :)
