I guess this would be the right place for this...

I feel like my life is falling apart. I kinda made up with my dad but ever since I started school I don't have the time to really go out and do anything.
Well my aunt just sent me a message on facebook asking me where I have been and why I have shut them out and that Lexi doesn't understand why I am not there anymore and that I mean the world to her and that she hopes that I could be like that to the new baby.. I didn't even know she was pregnant till I got this message.

I miss Lexi so much but I have school and work so what am I supposed to do when there are not enough hours in the day?

Is it okay to be upset to find out through facebook that my aunts pregnant again?

Why should I have to be the only one to put an effort in to everything?

I can understand the fact there never seems to be enough hours in a day. I'd call them up and just say sorry for not being around much of late, but you've been really busy lately with work and school and just life in general and that you werent shutting them out, that you are just trying to get a good system set up right nwo so you can free up some time to be able to visit more and do more things. And let them know that you would be happy if they too came and visited you, or called and tried ot make plans with you, and that, that would make it easier for you to be able to plan around. Maybe try and set a weekly time of and hour or so that you can go over there or that they can come meet you somewhere. and its best to do this either in person or over the phone (not text or email) its just more personal that way and shows tyou are making a reall effort.

it shouldnt be all up to you to make time for them, if they want to see you, they need to make an effort. if you are really busy, you don't need this on your shoulders as well. maybe you should tell them that.
maybe also mention that even though you dont see your aunt as much and you're really busy, you should still be kept in the loop. just because you arent around them, doesnt mean you're not apart of their lives anymore. it doesnt mean that you care about them any less. maybe they just don't really understand your side of the story just yet.
i hope you're able to fix everything
