Who’dve thought that having people like you could be so stressful?  Do your various family members know that you’re aware of their conflicts and that all the squabbling is causing you major stress?

Ok, here’s what I did, its really kinda simple in my case, hope it’ll work in yours- I told everyone involved, and I mean everyone, that I do not want to hear anything about the parties.  That’s their business.  I told them I’ll be thrilled with whatever happens but its not something I have to help plan so I want to be uninvolved.  It really is a quick fix, assuming everyones willing to leave you out of it.  My peeps had a hard time at first but they eventually realized I wasn’t kidding.

Ditto jennifer espos’ advice – reach into yourself and find your inner STRONG woman, and tell them they are seriously stressing you out with the drama! Try to do it in a way that doesn’t make any of them feel like you’re taking sides – perhaps do it when they’re all in the room, making sure not to make eye contact with any of them – and tell them you don’t want to hear about any of it.
