I know another dreadful Facebook post but I got a question.

The problem:
I'm from Texas but I live in Washington. I use Facebook to keep in contact with family in Texas (like my mother) and let them see my DD. But my mom and step dad tag me in ALL their posts. And invite me to events they know I can't go to! (My sister does this one a lot) a get it they are trying to involve me in their life. But its been 2 years!! Let it go! I'm tired of being tagged in them and having to remove my tags and them getting all butthurt.

The question:
How do I ask them nicely to stop tagging and inviting me with out hurting feelings.

My moms bipolar and lives to pull at the heart strings to make everyone the bad guy so if I say something remotely hurtful somehow I'll be the freaking devil. And how I abandoned her.there's no one left to love her and take care of her. My step dad is going to be blocked again soon because he's mean.talks about how he f* ing hates this person or that on my page. Iv asked him to settle down already though.


She also keep posting on my photos and posts about how much she misses us and how she cries all the time. So I already look bad because I took her precious grand baby.
Now I feel mean for felling annoyed... There's history to my moms emotional pull on me. Now I'm just ranting.... I'm annoyed too because I got a call they want me to either send them money or co-sign for my brother loan for a new car. He's wrecked 2 this year. And my "evil" dad won't do it he just fixes his credit why let them ruin it?!?!

I'm feeling ornery sorry if it's long

You can set it in privacy. Set it so that people can't tag you or need your approval before it posts.

Iv started doing that but its so aggravating regecting tag after tag. And the ohots are there for her to see so she doesn't miss out because she is grandma and they need pictures but the comments are so frustrating. She does it to make me feel bad and it works!

I'm pretty sure that you can change your permissons on FB to where you have to approve a tag before it goes through...it may just be for pics, though. Other than that...I'd either just ignore them or unfriend them. I get guilt trips and passive aggressive comments about me living far away from my family and I understand how annoying it can be.

I used to be tagged all the time. I'll have to check and see if there's a way to completely remove being tagged.

I wish but if I do that I'll have her crying on my phone. Why don't I love her anymore and I don't want that either. If I delete my face book I'll get pestered for me to mail her photis

I have mine set to where I have to approve tags before they appear on my timeline. I just ignore them. My BM relentlessly tags me, but none of her shit is on my wall lol.

Why don't you want to be invited to things?  What harm  or inconvience is it to be facebook invited to something?
