Does anyone else’s family STRESS THEM OUT?!?!
I just bit the bullet and invited my aunt and uncle who I never talk to… because I want to invite their daughter (who is an adult and could come by herself). But I figured I should invite them too. But I am not inviting her brother, who is 32 and a drug addict…. because he’s unstable. This uncle who I am now choosing to invite, is super mean to my mom and bullies her. (WHO DOES THAT?!) But my FI said we can just kick them out if he gets mean. I am hoping if they come, they just act civil. Also, this aunt uncle and cousin are on my step dad’s side of the family, so no blood relation (but I’ve known them since I was 5), and my mom and him are currently going through a divorce and hate each other and I havent even talked to said step dad more than twice in the last year. It’s awesome.
The final decision, was to invite the aunt and uncle so my cousin could plan a trip with them or at least her mom, so she wouldnt be an out of town guest all by herself. I wanted her to have someone with her… (not many women want to travel and attend a wedding as a loner. )
Although in writing this may seem like no big deal, but it’s been a big point of stress for me for MONTHS. So it is kind of nice to have just made a decision and move on, and just see what happens.
