Why must I go to both??? AdviceWatch
Then next weekend the relative is hosting a birthday meal at a restaurant...with all the people same people from the previous weekend and a few friends. Because of covid restrictions I will be able to see more family at the restaurant than the previous week. Again my dad will punish my siblings and I if we don't go.
I am a adult and i'm in my mid 20s and I prefer to just go to the restaurant and see the whole family that way.
Does anyone see the point of it all? I'm not close with them at all and I will basically see them twice, 1 week apart.
Any advice? Be kind
Might need to call up a few friends. I still live with him
Doesn’t seem worth it just because “you’ll see them the next week anyway”
And in the mean time start organising yourself to move out so that you’re no longer bound by your dad’s rules.
