    So recently one of my cousins had a birthday party and they did not invite me. Now, you may be thinking wow this OP must be some dumb naive baby who has nothing better to do - but I am a bit annoyed.

    Why? Well I have known them for years. Yeah sure I may have not turned up to their parties in the past but I have turned up to most. They have most certainly changed over the years and I guess they think they are bigger than me. At one of my recent house parties they weren't speaking much and left early. I can feel that they don't like me much and it is obvious that they keep their private life hidden away from me. I sense that their parents don't speak much to me either and the last time I spoke to them and asked them what the kids were up to - they didn't say much. They didn't seem to know what unis they were going to.

    The point is, I don't really believe the family comes first bull. I have done stuff for my family and they don't appreciate it.

    I just want to be the bigger man and move on from it all. How do I react if I see these cousins in the future?

    I know how you feel and personally i try to forget about it and carry on what im doing. later down the line theyll probably get in contact with you asking if you wanna hang out. Be cool with it and let it be, you've got bigger priorities than worrying what your cousin who doesn't put you into their plans to worry about.

    I know how you feel. It happens. Just move on and carry on doing what you do.
    They'll come back to you hopefully.
