  • Well mine isn't judgmental - just crazy but imagine it's the same thing. At some point you have to make a choice - are you an adult with your own feelings and opinions? If so, do they enhance your life or add unneeded and unwanted drama? My mother/sister can't respect my boundaries so I am currently not speaking with them - thats how it has to be for now. You may have to just be firm. Have no idea of your situation but in life generally I think we must set our boundaries, stick to our beliefs (whatever they may be) and if people cannot treat you in a *normal* respectful healthy way - then you have to remove them from your life. I wish you well my friend!

  • You don't. If my family was too in our business and causing problems in my immediate family, my immediate family would take priority.

  • MOVE to a different state where they CANT get all up in your business.
