- Wedding: March 2010
The other week I was having a hard time with my family. I snapped at my uncle and my grandpa for making homophobic/racial statement. I later called grandpa to apologize and that’s all worked out.
A few days later I posted on facebook something along the lines of not understand family members who can erase the memory of someone simply because they don’t agree with their actions. Mom got all upset and emailed me, telling me that I was “tearing our family apart” and that “no one could be happy for my wedding if I wasn’t happy.” I guess my aunt was extremely hurt by the comment I posted. I feel like even though my uncle and aunt asked where my cousin was at the wedding (she didn’t come and everyone asked me except for her parents where she was). I feel like they pretend she doesn’t exist. They judge too harshly and it hurts.
Well, I did the right thing. I e-mailed my aunt via FB that I was sorry for hurting her feelings. I also told her that for whatever reason family functions seem to bring out the worst in me.
This will either go one of three ways: a) shit will hit the fan b) she’ll ignore my post c)she’ll say it’s ok.
Now just crossing fingers.
