Ohhh…sorry about your situation.  The feeling of not being included is one of the worst feelings in the world, especially if it is from your own family.  The only advice I can give you is to invite them all to your VR.  The ones that come are the family that is worth caring about and keeping a relationship with.  Also, I wouldn’t want you to regret your decision not to invite them in 5 or 10 years. If they don’t want to come, let them live with the regret.

Good Luck, I hope they come and I hope you can start having a good relationship with them!  HUGS!!!!

I know what it’s like to so desperately want be loved and accepted by family. I was in a situation similar to yours. My dad’s family has always not been fond of me and was never especially nice to me, even my grandparents. When it came time for the wedding, I was torn like you are with inviting those who aren’t very warm and welcoming. I took a dive and ended up inviting everyone from my dad’s family, including my grandparents. They contacted me literally hysterical with excitement after receiving word of our engagement. You never know, this may be a good time for new bridges to be built and for broken ones to be rebuilt. I have gone my whole life thinking I was the black sheep, and now I feel like the granddaughter I’ve always wanted to be. I hope your family reaches out to you and you get the beautiful VR full of love that you deserve.
