Awww I am sorry  to hear this. This is the hardest part about growing up and moving away from home. I have been in a similar boat with my siblings and it is tough. My advice to you would be to talk to them. Have you ever mentioned to your dad and brother that it bothers you that they don’t make more of an effort? I would try that and see if it improves. Also, I would ask your bro if there is anything you can do with his wedding to help them out and get a little more involved. Hopefully that helps a bit and it is a good thing you have an awesome support system with your mom/hubby/friend. Good luck to you!! Hope everything works out 🙂

Just try to focus on the positive people in your life!  You can’t always pick your family, but you when you find people you can depend on, they can become like family.  I sort of know what you are going through.  I haven’t spoken to my dad since 2006 and the way I see it is if he doesn’t want to be a part of my life its his loss!  It took a while to accept that, but it is easier to have relationships with those who want to have a relationship with you too.  Maybe your dad doesn’t even know how he’s making you feel.  Maybe you can take him aside and try to explain how you feel.  Goodluck!
