Unhappy Sister and Brother-In-Law cut us off... - January 16th 2012, 06:18 PM

As the title suggests, my sister and brother-in-law cut my parents and siblings still living at home off, and to make matters worse, they have 3 children, 2 of which are twins. I miss my nephews so much! My sister even went so far as to unfriend us on FB, so now the only pics I get to see are the ones she puts as her profile pic.

The reason for all this is complicated, but basically because we left the church (cult) we used to be a major part of, and now this has happened. I'm still praying for relationships to be restored, but for now this is the way it is.

Mostly I want some ideas on ways to cope. I've already asked another young mom if I could come hang out with her 2 little girls just to have some little kid time since I used to babysit my nephews every week and now I'm having withdrawal symptoms from not getting to speak baby smack with a 2 yr old.

So any ideas?

It seems like you are already taking a step in the right direction towards coping. Perhaps spending time with friends can help ease the pain? If you need to grieve alone or with the rest of your family, that can help a lot as well. It can be incredibly painful to lose someone so close like that, and I hope for your (and their) sake that relationships are indeed restored and that everyone can forgive and forget. I wish you the best, however things work out. Perhaps this will be a case of "time heals all?"

Anyways, best of luck. If you ever wanna chat, feel free to let me know.

I agree - you seem to be doing good coping now. I would just try to slowly ease away from spending time with kids and maybe fill your life with other things that will keep you busy.

As for your sister, you said you want to relationship to be restored - and the only way that will happen is if you and your sister talk. I would write a heart filled message and just poor your heart out and send it too her Via Facebook. If you get no reply, then all you can do is leave it alone. But if you do get a reply, that means she atleast wants to talk to you. Its better to try it and fail than to not try at all.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
