July 4th and other family get-togethers
« on: June 19, 2018, 01:12:31 AM »
It's been a few weeks since I went NC with my mother and oldest sister, and today I got two invitations to family gatherings.  I don't want to go to either because I'm still angry about some smearing/gossip that occurred before the NC.  But it is hard.  I feel like I'm being the spoiled sport who will ruin these gatherings by refusing to go.  But I also know I would be miserable and seething the whole time.  I could easily go for months or longer without seeing PDed mother and sister without missing either of them.  It would be a relief even if it felt a bit disorienting, or guilt-inducing. 

Anyone else been there?
