So last comment from the OP on this, gotta be back to work!…again I will say:
Yup I’m kind of disturbed by the number of these non-personal picture post cards we’ve gotten. Except for the thank you picture/card which she wrote a lovely note on.
Yup, I actually see quite a humorous side to this and in that humor I also have affection for my relative as a young lady who is still very young (some of you might not believe it but I do love her, part of this is actually kind of cute from the perspective of a relative who is well old enough to be her mother and has known her since she was a baby, I am very happy for her joy both the marriage and the new baby that’s coming)
Yup you’re right I could just bin them but maybe the part where I love her stops me from doing so.
I have 4 daughters close to her age that I love hopelessly and you bet I call them out on stuff from time to time. Fiance and I with affection and laughter discuss some of their behaviours we find less apealing…so this is kind of like that for me.
If you look at my original post…I was just seeking to vent and to see if this was some kind of new norm that I needed to get used to. Because if you younger gals had said across the board that this was something everyone did…I’d say ok I guess I need to get used to it. But I’m hearing different ranges of opinion so that tells me it’s not the norm – yet! Dear lord please don’t let it be…lol
And yup I’m willing to admit that venting is actually not a healthy form of communication if there is any chance the subject of your venting might be hurt, but I mistakenly thought after seeing other threads that was an acceptable thing to communicate here because due to anonymity the innocent could be reasonably protected? But apparently there are thought police everywhere
And at first it was kind of therapeutic as many of you also saw the humor and I also got great advice and insights… but then emerged those of you who started judging me and other posters because if they thought it was kind of funny or agreed with me – so they must be horrible too. Which made me think…what a huge mistake I’ve made in creating my first and what will now be my last thread on this site. I really don’t enjoy the drama this kind of creates.
For those of you who gave great advice, saw the humor and understood where I was coming from thanks, lended your differing perspective in a helpful manner, know I very much appreciate it.
Oh and for those of you who post whole wedding albums on facebook…seems a bit over the top for me but I do understand, I think that’s a good place for it and people can choose to look through the whole thing or not – but then it’s a choice – it’s not something I’m subjected to.
