    12 years back I went against my parent’s wish and married my husband and most of my relatives (Mom’s siblings and dad’s siblings) stopped talking with me. After that, I never tried to talk with any of my relatives. I was only talking with my parents and my siblings and my relatives lives in a different country than my parents. Recently I started talking with my relatives and I am not able to deal with all the family dramas/ politics. Because of the long gap I lost all my skills to deal with my relatives and I was happy when I was not talking with any of them, so I want to cut all my ties with my relatives again. Is this right approach to live a life? Any advice?

    Most of the time..Relatives means politics..unfortunately..


    If you want to keep in touch..keep a distance.Anyways.. it is just phone calls.
    Talk once in a while or just type messages in watsapp. Boundaries are any day better.Also,it’s been so many years..so it will take time for everything to get used to.

    Thanks Anika.
    Yes, it will take time.
