Be The Bigger Person?
When my husband and I met I was thrilled to find out he had two sisters. I myself have no sisters and I was very hopeful I would become good friends with these girls. We are all three close in age. The two of them and their mom (my mother in law) are all best friends and I just figured in time I would be part of that circle as well. I was very outgoing and friendly towards them. I invited them over to our house, parties, etc. It has just become very clear they really don't want to have anything to do with me in spite of the effort I have made over the last few years. Now my husband and I have a little girl. They want to spend time with my daughter but make it clear they don't want me around with her. They want to babysit her, pick her up and take her places, etc. My husband even talked with his mom and told her my feelings were hurt and that I have really tried to make an effort at establishing a relationship with these people.
So at this point I have completely given up on these girls. I think they are bitchy and rude and I am done with them. Do I write them off and quit attending family functions or do i be the bigger person? My one sister in law is having a baby shower soon and I am torn. She still hasn't told my husband or I that she's pregnant! I am sure I will be invited because they will want to see my daughter.
