When their friends/family stonewall you too…

  1. They will always be their family no matter what. My ex’s family all knew me for 5 years and the type of person I was. I helped each of them out with things and was great to their kids etc., but as soon as I broke up with him, they cut me off without even asking for my side of the story. They didn’t care that my ex was abusive, they didn’t care that my ex might have contributed to me being at my wits end. They aren’t my family so they don’t owe me anything.

  2. Wow, I’m sorry. I totally get the loyalty thing, but it’s just not in me as a person to ignore or cut off someone I knew. Guess you can’t hold other people to your own values. I guess I just feel like why am I being punished here? I’m the one who’s been treated badly.

  3. i’ve had this exact same experience. her family have basically been my family for the last 4 years. i know it’s shitty, but i actually prefer being round them more than i do with my own family. they’re more fun and we can talk about deep stuff one moment, stupid stuff the next with no judgement.
