Is your family like this? How do you deal with it? Constant back stabbing!
I have a huge family and they talk about each other constntly behind each others backs. I am considered a bitch because if I have a problem with someone I just tell them. I don't call my mom, sister, aunt, etc and bitch about it. My mom sems to enjoy getting in the middle of it, too. She will casually say, "I think so and so was upset with you because of XYZ". And I will get VERY angry and say, "Why didn't so and so just TELL ME? Why did they complain to you?" It has gotten so bad I don't even talk to my family much and I skip most family functions. I want my kids to be close to their cousins but I am always stressed and pissed off when I find out they are all back stabbing me (and each other)!
