I just needed some place to talk about wedding stuff without boring my friends. I had a real bridezilla moment with my dad today. I am estranged from his side of the family, and obviously there is a lot of tension and family politics involved.
I just feel overwhelmed and frazzled. Also some of my cousins on my mom’s side have not been as genuinely happy for me as I thought they would have.
Its interesting and hurtful to see jealously coming from family members. Part of me feels that I should be modest and respectiful to them and their financial situations but the other part of my wants to rejoice and enjoy this wonderful time! I met a wonderful man and we love each other and I just want to be excited and share everything- especially with family members. Family is suppose to be a safe haven and people who really should be genuinely happy for you.

I am shocked at how unsupportive family can be. I have waited my whole life for this man.

I know how you feel, I have family problems too but of a different sort.. You realize pretty quickly who your real friends (and family) are when weddings happen. Hope it all works out for you!

CONGRATULATIONS! The bees are very happy for you!!
There will be multiple stressful and frustrating times. I’ve found in the past 6 or so months of engagment, there have been some of my best and WORST EVER moments. I think the same goes for some of my/FI’s family members.
But, the deep breaths and refocusing on what really matters: the marriage of two people who are great for each other and in love, will over come it all.
Good luck…I’m sure the BEST (and still some worsts, wink wink) are yet to come!! 🙂 But all worth it in the end!! 🙂 xox
