- Wedding: April 2012
hi bees! so i have posted about this a little before..but to give an overview my parents are not on good terms with my aunt and uncle (my dads brother). my dad and uncle work together and they have their own issues, but last November my aunt flipped out on my mom for no reason. I will spare the details. They attended my wedding in April, my family barely spoke to them and they were rude (mostly my aunt). Well since then my aunt has sent my mom some horrible emails. calling her names, verbally abusing my dad, and saying very hurtful things. My mom just responded with “I am not going there with you.” My mom and aunt use to be close, although my aunt has caused problems in the past and has always been a bitch, but things are really bad now. So basically my family is not talking to her and I have a lot of anger towards her for the things she said about my parents.
Anyway, I saw her this over labor day, we just said hi, she was cold towards us, and that was that. We are all going to a family wedding in October and I am nervous about seeing her. She may just say hi and move on, but I am worried if she tries to be nice and talk to me what I should do. I do not want to be fake and tell her about my life, and I feel like if she did talk to me I would want to say something like “I really do not like the emails you sent to my mom and I would rather not talk to you.” And just walk away. I would never cause a scene, but I also dont want to have a convo with her other than saying hi how are you.
Any advice? I am thinking of going to talk someone about this, as it has been causing me stress and anxiety! I am obviously very protective of my parents and the things she said are unforgivable. What would you do?
