my entire torso is pulled in and tight, my back hurts, and a relative said a very uncool thing
'i was just joking'
no. no, i don't think you were. and now i have to tiptoe even more. and control my temper even more. and be 'good and helpful' even more. and wonder wtf went wrong in my life.
Family. The friends we don't get to choose. Oh, wait, yes we do.
I once watched a friend not acknowledge a girl that had treated his friend badly. They were participating in the same conversation. It wasn't an overt "I see you but choose not interact with you." He simply acted as if she were not there. It was impressive as hell. On the off chance you can't avoid this family member, think you could give it a whirl?

I found it amazingly liberating to realize that even if I share genetics with someone, I don't have to put up with their crap. If this relative is nasty to you, it's on them to shape up, not your responsibility to suck it up and be nice to someone who's horrible.

Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
