Okay, I'm in serious need of a pep talk.
Over the holidays, my ILs and SILs did and said some pretty spiteful things about DH and I behind our backs and on Facebook. On FB!! For everyone to see!! DH and I didn't want to make a big deal out of it because really, the reason it all happened WASN'T a big deal. We hoped it would blow over. It didn't and things were a bit icky so DH confronted them all in a very well written and nice email.
He got everything out. Good for him, he's over it.
I'm not. Oh so totally not. Whenever I am doing something quiet (painting, washing dishes, etc) I brood on it, dwell on what they said and did. I don't want to see them anymore, I want to do mean things to them. I even think of witty and evil things to say to them, lol. BTW, I asked for advice about some of the issue here and ranted about it here. Yeah, I'm still so not over it....
I've decided I need to confront them but I'm a total wimp. Or really, a super nice person. Someone who doesn't want to make others uncomfortable. Heaven forbid I tell them what I think because then things would get awkward. Urrg!!!! All I want to do is stand up for myself! Nicely of course. I want to tell them my point of view and let them know how hurt I was that they, supposedly my family, treated me the way they did. I feel I owe it to them so they could understand why I was so stiff and quiet the last time we were around them.
Anyone BTDT? Give me a pep talk!! I need to know how to bring this up at a dinner with them on Saturday. I need courage. Otherwise I won't say anything and I'll keep it all inside and remain angry FOREVER!!! Not something I want.
