Wow…I’m so sorry.  This just plain sucks.  Mostly because I don’t think there’s a thing anyone can do about her attitude.  She has a huge personal problem and until she can make peace with her past, there’s no way you’re going to have luck talking to her about how you’re feeling.  I’d just try to keep a smile on your face and be as nice as possible to her when she’s around.  Her issues are with her self and her past.  She’s completely misdirecting her anger.

Sorry you have to be the one that gets the brunt of her bad attitude.  I have an aunt (my mom’s sister) that has never been very warm to me or my sister.  My theory is that it has to do with the way my grandparents (her parents) treated me and my sister vs. her kids.  I just tried to be as sweet as possible around her.

You aunt seems like a troubled person.  I wouldn’t take it so personally, I think she’s just angry and bitter with the world.  A lot of people go through much worse and aren’t so resentful towards the very family that always stood by them or blame them for all their issues.  Money shouldn’t matter and her choices most likely affected her life more than any of her loved ones.

I would invite your aunt and be courteous to her, she may realize on day how selfish and inappropriately she’s acting but chances are she’s stuck in her own pity party.  Hopefully she’ll make peace with her mother and with you and forget the idea that anyone owes her anything.

ouch. but just remember,

should you find yourself the victim of other peoples’ bitterness, ignorance, smallness, or insecurities, remember that things could be much worse. You could be like them!

I know it will be hard, and it really sucks that she is so petty, but how she is treating you is unfair and hurtful and you don’t need anyone like that in your life.

Cut her out. Forgive and forget her. Don’t invite her to the wedding. People like her, at her age, won’t change. She believes the world, and her mother OWE her, instead of realizing that SHE is responsible for her own life. Living in the past, it’s sad.

Her malice will only poison her in the end. blessings…
