Outnumbered and Anxious
My DH has just informed me that he’s invited all his kids and grandchildren over for lunch next Sunday. I am already getting feelings of anxiety. There are three adult daughters and one son who will be visiting with their children. The daughters are not bringing their husbands. I have had to put up with many family gatherings, in the past, when it’s been a “them and me” situation. I always feel very lonely and left out. Don’t get me wrong, they are all lovely people. Are these feelings of mine normal? Should I be making more effort? Or do I need therapy?!!
