Well, I successfully made it through the family reunion. I feel like the only person that feels completely out-of-place with my family. I feel like they don’t know me. They know the old me, and in their mind that is STILL who I am. Not that I was ever a bad person or anything. It just seems that family chooses to point out the most embarrassing times in life. I kind of feel like these are all people I used to know. Ninety percent of the people there, I hadn’t talked to in many years. I feel inadequate in their presence. Thankfully this will probably be the last time everyone will get together. Unfortunately, my mother is the glue that holds us all together and she is turning 80 in January. I cannot imagine an earth without her.
I guess I really needed to get this off my chest. It’s not like I can talk to anyone in the family about it. They would just think I am being over dramatic. That’s why I blog. I can spill my guts here on the great world-wide web and become a needle in a hay stack. LOL Anyway for those of you who do read. I truly appreciate you being a part of my therapy process.
