Just wondering it there are any families that get together for Christmas and get along. I always think that there is something wrong with my family as there is no togetherness. My one brother hates my mother over something silly that happened 20 years ago. Of course he is an angry sort that will never grow up but still. One of my other brothers has a son who is gay plus that brothers wife really does not like us so they hide away and are not around....They are very immature and obviously have their own issues. I have tried to fix things but obviously they have issues. The one brother who is mad is a correction's officer and I don't think it is due to his job, as I think he has had issued all of his life as he is weak but presents himself as a man. His wife dumped his sorry ass as she wanted a real man!!! That brother has kids who have are not allowed and never have been allowed to be around that brother's family.

So I kick back and look at my family situation and wonder if there are any families out there who really get along.

its gotting worse in my event all people do is mimic me they buy gifts I buy them they suggest things we do that I suggest in the past they try to talk to me in my tone etc if I wanted to be in a mirror room I go to the bathroom instead I gota forced holiday with robots that seem to feed on my thoughts on top of other things
theirs a sadist that seem to be monitoring us all and theirs nothing we can do about it

Cheryl, your family is dysfunctional just like most families are, mine included. Stop trying to "bring it together" because I can tell you, it will NOT happen. On the off chance that it does, there will be issues which WILL put a major damper on the holidays, especially if the meanies/whackos are drinking.

Sometimes you just have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies away.

Bring yourself holiday cheer by being around friends/family members that YOU love and enjoy. That's what I do and it works great. Think about it-- there is NO RULE that says you must play nice with nasty family members at the holidays or any other time.

Happy New Year!

Nope. You know what they say. You can pick your friends but not your family.

I hate holidays. Glad when they are over. I don't talk to my family and they don't talk to me.

All families are dysfunctional. Here is the problem some can't except it and avoid getting together, some force normalcy and have fake get togethers in which everyone walks around on egg shells. True happiness comes when all involved accept and embrace their dysfunction and just make the best of it and spend one day just being together as they are. Life is not a hallmark card.
