Mobile Sorry - Need to vent

So my wife and I both come from quite large families. My lot are very family orientated (except a few members!) and see each other regularly my wifes only really at special occasions again Barr a few aunts etc.

So todays Easter Sunday. My kids seen my dad and thats it. My brothers and sisters sent messages and eggs down with my dad. All except my eldest brother. Not text call which didnt bother me until I seen on a mutual friends Facebook post that he and my sister in law had organised a family bbq and Easter weve hunt but only sil family and friends were invited. Not even my dad.
My brother regularly dips in and out of our family but this has really annoyed me.

Then see another post where my wifes dad and his new wife have had a grandparents day out again with only her granddaughter and no acknowledgment at all of our four kids.
Not seen or heard from them in over a year.
No Christmas or birthday messages for the kids either.

Its really annoyed me on both parts however but my wife thinks I shouldnt be bothered by it but I cant help it!

Aannddd breathe! Thanks and apologies again 😁

The evils of social media! Stop checking out everyone else's lives and live your own... it's much more important!

Definitely! Strange how some friends become more family than family!
Only reason I really have Facebook is to keep in contact with friends and family spread across the world. Can feel a mute spree coming on though 😆
Cheers guys

I got rid of facebook and twitter years ago and never started on instagram or snapchat - the limit of my social media is here on the Dibb

Strangely the people I like and those that like me still manage to keep in contact though

Family can be so selfish. Do what's best for you and your kids and let everyone else run on.

Don't give anyone else (family or otherwise), that much power to influence your mood and well-being. Rightly or wrongly, they're going to do what they're going to do.
