I feel really let down and hurt by my extended family (see my earlier post about them) during this period of coronavirus. I’m seeing their true colors. As I mentioned before, it’s a big group of us all living in the same area (all within 20 mins driving distance of each other). No one has reached out to me during this time, not even a “hey, how’s it going.” I guess I could’ve reached out to them first, but they KNOW that I’m hurt with them for judging me. I used to have personal, one-on-one relationships with almost all of them. Now I can see how much they actually care about me...they don’t. :(

Thanks for the support! It’s so refreshing to be acknowledged that this behavior is annoying. I’m the only one in my family that seems to have a problem with it, and I start to wonder if I’m crazy. It’€™s really frustrating, I feel like I come off as the “mean”€ or “weird”€ one for pointing out the obvious truth...

No one in my extended family wants to look weak around each other. It’s true. I think that’s so sad. Shouldn’t unconditional love begin with family? I guess not everyone wants to do the right thing. Oh well.

You’re right about my second option of making a limited appearance. I think if I was in a stronger place internally, I could handle that. Maybe one day. But for now, the best I can do is to just avoid these gatherings.

I understand how you feel. I was thinking making an appearance (to look like you care) on a short term thing like group video is ideal. Then you haven't wasted time and gas to physically be there. ;)

Great idea. Right now I’m really emotionally fragile when it comes to any of them...but I can see this idea working in the future.
