This is a question mixed with a rant but do any of you have really stuck up family members who think they are the center of the universe? I have this one aunt (mom's sister) who lives a state away. Her and I have never been close, and we hardly ever talk, she's one of those people who care about what she looks like to an extent that it's annoying (you know those people). I was brought up to act girly and look nice all the time and have nice things (mom and grandmother).. BUT I ended up hating it! I wear what is comfortable and im with a guy who is not about all that bs and is fun and dosen't make a huge deal over such superficial things and he loves me for who I am and not what I wear and what I have. He also thinks that my family treats me like im not good enough because I don't conform to what they think is "proper." If I could move far away, I would, but they're always going to be family. Anybody in a similar boat?Answer Question

I do have cousin that is like that. It is annoying, and I do get sick of the world revolving around her. She is ridiculously spoiled, and apparently we all have to cater to her whims even when it's a huge inconvenience for the rest of us. I have tried to keep a connection with her since she is family and we have similarly aged children, but there is no effort on her part. I was asking her to lunch about once a month for a couple of years, and she was always too busy to make it. She's usually too busy to actually attend or stay at family functions too, but she does have plenty of time to do things with her friends who are apparently better than me. She inherited some money, which is basically gone now. I've worked my way through school and have a good job, but I don't shop for designer clothes so I'm not acceptable, an embarrassment. If it weren't for holidays I'd be able to just forget her.

OP here... I forgot to mention that the whole point of my question/rant was about my aunt who feels like she does not need to call me or return my phone calls at that (which I am forced to make by my mom mostly and grandmother who is nasty aunt's mother).. I don't understand why they think I should be so nice to someone who dosen't give a rat's a** about me or my babyshower, OR my baby at that... Would it be wrong just not to talk to any of them? Sometimes I just want to pretend I don't even know them. They are the most annoying, bitter, selfish people I know.. and I don't want to turn out like them.
Mine doesn't call me or return my calls either. I started just sending things via e-mail so I don't have to have actual contact. Also, I don't feel quite so ignored when I don't get a response. I make the effort to keep the peace, but then the ball is in their court.
