No, thankfully I have not ever had to protect family from family.

Unfortunately, I could have written that post almost word for word.

Once love and concern is questioned due to bitterness and resentment, relationships may never recover. You described bitterness so well and it is so true.

Praying for you and your family.

I try to protect them from eachother, and it doesn't seem to help and i'm an older sibling (by 12-16 years) so it's really hard for me.

Tara said...

Thank you Tonya.. I am sorry that you can relate..but I appreciate that you understand.. and I appreciate your prayers. I believe prayer changes things :)

Yes, unfortunately I have and still do have to. It's tough.

Jeremy said...

No, we've had to protect our kids from our exes however.

My mother-in-law has the best of intentions and wouldn't want to hurt my kids but she has done stupid things like drive my baby in a car and not buckle the car seat, not put them in a car seat or the car seat wasn't attached. I think she has been yelled at many times by me and for months I checked the car seats before she took my kids.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, I have had to protect my family from other family members' drama. I wish everyone could get along and not live in denial or in the past. We are visiting with family this weekend and my fingers are crossed we have no drama. Have a wonderful holiday weekend and take care.

YEP! I'm talking about middle aged adults here too. It's a reality. Good question.

Yes, sadly I have had to do this. Not only with my out-laws, but also my mother's brother.

Thank god, up to now, no.

Anissa said...

It will never stop -- I just learn to take care of my husband and my kids and forget the rest -- some people you just can't make happy and everything you tell them in private may come up as a blog post. Than they talked behind your back like a high school teenager. It is sick!

Michelle said...

No, not in the way you mean, just the sort of protection children need from the world always.

Princess Andy said...

Pamela Kramer said...

Yes and it's unpleasant.

Becca said...

I have an uncle who is a bit selfish and we try to not see him too often, but that's thankfully the worst of it!

diana said...

hmmm... i guess in little ways, for situations that are normal in any family. thankfully, we haven't had any major problems in our families.

Brea's Mommy said...

Sadly this is sometimes necessary. I have also had to confront this issue. Not as much anymore, but I am sure it will resurface again. Good luck!

blueviolet said...

We have had to financially protect our parents from one of our siblings.

Thom said...

yes and I think we do this all the time :) Aloha and thanks for stopping by my playground. Much appreciated :)

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
