A netizen shared how he wasn’t invited to his sister’s birthday because of work and when he asked if family if they could reschedule the timing, they didn’t reply him and went on with it.
Here is the story:
I’m 27 and just cried because I wasn’t invited to my sister birthday dinner.
I work nights, I told them all a week ago I couldn’t go to anything after 4pm on Saturday but that I was off Sunday or could do breakfast Saturday.
Instead of answering me I was ghosted until I found out tonight from my mom that she (25F) booked the dinner at a restaurant at 5pm tonight.
I called to ask if she’d be willing to push it to tomorrow and she told me no.
I’m single and have no real friends, family means everything to me and I always ALWAYS put them first when making plans.
I didn’t even choose the restaurant for my birthday, hell they didn’t even remember mine until I called them the night before asking if they’d eat with me.
I’m really sorry this happened to you. I struggle with handling not being invited or included in things.
Remember, you have the right and the capability to build your own family with whoever you want. There are plenty of people in the world looking for other people to connect with.
It may be hard to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people, but it is any harder than dealing with a family you don’t feel included in?
