Hi guys I went to a friends sister's baby shower today and enjoyed myself, but I couldn't help but feel kinda bummed. There were several people there which I know don't like me.
There was a group of three sisters there that don't like me because my older sister got into a fight with their older sister in middle school (more than 10+ years ago) and we haven't really been cool since, although I don't really talk to them or vice versa. On top of that one of their ex boyfriends hit on me and was trying to get at me at a party ( I didn't even pay attention to him), but she was there and I know she saw.
Then there was an older lady there that my mom has told me talks badly about me. My mom says that lady always tells my mom how I need to gain weight or use less makeup, weird stuff like that. I haven't heard that lady say any of that stuff, but my mom told me that on a few occasions she said " your daughter needs to stop wearing so much makeup", and "She needs to gain weight, she used to be much prettier when she was bigger". Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I get kinda get put off by comments like that. Then she has a daughter which gives me dirty looks all the time and I don't even know her. Last year we had big graduation party for my brother, complete with live music and a family friend asked if she could invite this lady. I told my mom not to invite her, because she gives me a bad vibe, so she just nicely told her friend that she couldn't because we had reached our rsvp limit. I'm sure that made things worse.
What do I in these situations? I like to think I'm a very kind person, very approachable, I don't fret over little stuff. All of my friends tell me not to pay attention and ignore stuff like this, but these people don't like me and I really am not to blame for this stuff!
