|Maybe they just don't like social situations, or they have an underlying issue with a member of the family. I know my hubby hates family events or big parties, its hard b/c you don't want to be rude and just not show up. We simply drive seperatly, so I am free to stay as long as I desire without having to worry about him being uncomfortable. We have a huge family and it seems like their is always something going on, and with our busy lives its difficult to attend every social event and still have time for our family. Have you asked? ↑|
|Well, this is the same sister that has had a birthday party for her kid for the last 8 yrs. (which I never missed a one) and can't make it to my sons 3 yr party. ↑|
|This might sound mean, but I think I would skip out on her party ↑|
|That's what my husband said. ↑|
|My sister pulls this crap. Every time there is a family gathering of some kind she never shows up, but she is the first one to expect everyone else to come to her son birthday party. I too think that maybe you should start skipping out on her parties. ↑|
|Could you speek with them and ask them why they never attend and maybe ask them when they are free to attend?|
I must say that a quite few times I had prior plans to go away when the parties happened. Let them know that you miss them when they are not part of the event.
Just a thought.
I would also tell them I will start going to your events if you start showing up for ours... well maybe I would not say that but ya know what I mean
Very best of luck!! ↑
