Soulnoid's Journal, 08 February 2013

Day 381- Catch-up... I made it through the Super Bowl ok and did not drink that night, but I also realized/confirmed something that has been building over the past few years and more. I DON'T LIKE MY FAMILY!(Not my little family, but my parents, sister and brother) It is so strange to sit in a room with the folks you grew up with and realize you have nothing in common and much different goals. I am not saying I am smarter/better than them, but they are very closed minded on a lot of things and have a hard time facing facts and dealing with them. It is so bad, I just try to avoid them. My sister will break down and cry/throw a fit anytime something does not go her way. She just has this way of making everyone feel uncomfortable. I try to sneak out the backdoor when this happens or just hide..... I am done trying to help, she does not want the help or just does not care enough. She is also very overweight, but I know that comes from not being happy and how she puts herself down. BTW, this is someone with a MBA here! (What she needs it for I have no clue?)

I am big on this 'surround yourself' with folks you look up too thing lately and they just don't make the cut. Not trying to be rude... just honest.

BTW, I have/had a habit of drinking when I am around them.....

Oh boy can i relate. YOU ARE SO NORMAL! There is this weird emphasis on family and I never got it. I'm the youngest of 6! Last time we were all in the same room together was 2005 when my dad died, and yup, no one spoke, and when they did it was drama drama drama like you. I SO agree about surrounding yourself with only those that bring out the positive. I just started doing that this year, Im still looking for more positive people. It seems kind of hard for some reason. When I go visit my mom, i make sure no other siblings come around. It just works out better that way. Congradulations on not drinking at the superbowl. I would have had lots of wine or vodka in hand if I was around my dorky family. Thank goodness we all live far away from eachother.

Wow, just had lunch with a couple of friends and we were talking about the same thing! I do not like my family either. My mother is such a hypocrite and my brother is so holier than thou. They try to act like they are perfect and it is nauseating to behold. My father and I were very much alike, but he passed away in 1999, and things have gone downhill ever since. I try to avoid interacting with them as much as possible. It makes me a happier person :-)

I get along real well with my mom and stepdad but it is because we share the same morals and goals in life I think. But the I feel the same way about my dad and stepmom and a lot of my other family. Gonna have a talk with my Dad this weekend about how a lot of things that have been going in make me feel. I want to be able to have a good relationship with them but I don't agree with so many ways in which they live their life. Which makes me not want to bring my kids around them at all. So wish me luck.

My husband and I feel the same way about his family. We both wonder how he ever made it out alive, his WHOLE family is just so different. It's hard to not be snobby about it when we are with them, so I know how you feel. Usually it gets a little better if we take a break from them all for a while, so maybe that'll help you to regain some patience. And good job on avoiding the drinking!
