Hi I feel so stressed facing my husband’s many close knit relatives since I don’t have any such relatives.
My mother was an adopted child and her relatives are not close to me.
I lost her last year when I was 28 yrs old.I am an only child too and I feel isolated.i find it hurtful when my in laws ask questions like “ do your aunts talk to you” etc.
I don’t want to reach out to my relatives because I don’t want to beg for their time. I don’t want pity either.My aunts have children of their own. I can’t ask them to care about me.
I know this is not the biggest issue but it’s so painful.
I am afraid of festive holiday times like Christmas.Also if my father chooses to remarry as he wishes to do now,I will be left with no family at all.
