Opinions please?

My cousin lives in another state. I haven't seen her since I was 19! I'm almost 50. Her husband is an alcoholic and doesn't spend any time with her. Her stepchildren, (she never had a child of her own) pretty much ignore her and dislike her. My cousin and I reconnected through facebook. She sent me an email which she violated my boundaries kind of bashing my daughter (never met my daughter just saw her fb page). We ended up having a falling out over it. I find out that she tried to friend my nephews, niece 5 states away who she never met...and now she's bugging my kids constantly. I find this odd since she is a few years younger than I. What do you think is going on?

  • I would agree with the lonely and even the jealously. As her family life probably did not turn out the way she had envisioned it, she is seeing that you had a life that she wanted. Tread softly and wide around this one.

  • She's lonely and bitter, if what you say is true how could she not be?

  • WOW! sounds like she might be trying to reach out to family..the wrong way... be leary of friending her and letting your kids friend her...jmo

  • I would say that she's lonely, maybe depressed, and doesn't know how to handle herself. She may be trying to reach out to someone, anyone, and is soo desperate she's king of over doing it. That would be my guess.

  • She sounds like she is lost in the world...poor thing but then again I wouldn't want her near my family though :/ Just pray that she keeps her distance and pray for her that God will keep her safe. GL

  • I agree with the lonely theory

  • Sounds to me like she might be jealous. Sometimes people try to ruin what other people have in any way that they can so that they can feel better about their lives or themselves...I say that you warn your family/friends about her and tell them to block her crazy ass.

  • She may just be lonely. I'd also ask her why she felt the need to bash your daughter.
