Family in the kitchen, over the holidays
This is a Conversations question, so sorry for posting it here...but I wanted a few responses, before it's moved.
I know some people don't get along with their families and holidays are difficult. But has anyone thought they had a good relationship, only to find out, when times are difficult...that they really did not? How do you deal with the holidays?
I don't want to see any of my husband's family. I can't imagine chatting in their kitchens and acting like everything is fine. Their behavior during his illness was very disappointing...and I have not gotten past it. I am not a difficult person to get along with (I'm pretty optimistic) but they acted like I was invisible, during the last year. They didn't treat my husband much better.
So, is it forgive and forget...or go to see my family and not his? While I want my husband to be with his family, if we go...I have to go with him, until he gets better. I need some advice. I'm too close to this to be objective.
