A woman who recently had a baby and received a personalized pillowcase in the mail with her daughter’s name and birth stats from her Aunt and Uncle.
Where Is Her Name?!
However, the package was addressed to her daughter and her mother, even though they live in different states. This made her feel neglected by her family.
The Family’s History
The woman’s mother’s side of the family lives in Iowa, and the woman and her mother live in Texas.
They Didn’t Care
As a child, she was close to her mother’s side of the family, but she slowly realized that they don’t actually care about her. They would invite her mother to events and expect her to invite the woman instead of reaching out to her directly.
Getting this package that has absolutely nothing to do with her mother, yet was addressed to her, just seems like the last straw to the woman.
She feels like her family refuses to acknowledge her existence. She is confused about why they neglect her and only invite her to events when her mother is invited.
The Woman’s Reaction
The woman is considering sealing the package back up with an added letter detailing her feelings and sending it back to her Aunt and Uncle. She doesn’t want the pillowcase as it will be a reminder of how little they care about her. She is unsure if this would be a bad move and wants to get opinions from others.
Most of the comments on the woman’s post were in her favor. People pointed out that her family was being neglectful and that she should confront them about it.
They also suggested that she should reach out to them directly and be more direct about why they don’t acknowledge her.
Should She Cut Ties?
Some people also suggested that she should cut ties with her family if they continue to neglect her. In the end, the woman felt validated by the support she received from strangers on the internet, even though her family still neglected her.
The Internet Responded
One commenter said, “Honestly I am not going to judge you, but I think you are overreacting to send the gift back.”
Another had this to say, “Send them a thank you note addressed to their mom.”
More Comments From The Internet
Some people had a different opinion, “Could have been a slip of the mind – she meant to write your name, but wrote your mom’s. I have an aunt who calls me by my mom’s name at least 50% of the time – it’s not malicious.”
