Oddly enough, one mega-pararnoid family member finally started talking to the rest of the family again on Monday. To be honest, I'd have been okay if he'd kept shunning us.
Actually, this made me laugh out loud!!! The reason being, I could really relate to this - years ago, a family member no one got along with stopped talking to all of us for a couple of years, because of some imagined slight. As it turned out, instead of being upset about this - we were happy! And, we wished they had stopped talking to us for good, and not just two years!!
