It’s funny, only last week I posted a happy post, one that I wasn’t going to let things get me down. Well, sorry but this is a down post (as we all have them). I’ve been with my husband for 10 years this November and I still don’t feel like I’m a member of his sister’s little club. Yes, I get that I’m the outsider, that they are family and they are best friends but this feeling of being left out, whether intentional or not, really hurts. And it’s not just me that feels left out, my husband feels like it too (not just his sisters but parents also) because we are often the last to know, the last consulted and just have to go with it. I know I seem like I’m whinging but we have two young children just like the two sisters. One of the sister’s live in Melb and the other is up where I live, I’m always offering to babysit, to help to just be there really but it never seems like enough or that I’m good enough. And I think that in general also because I seem to always give more to people, (which I don’t mind but it does occasionally get disheartening when no-one thinks of you) I really like both my sister in laws and it just makes me a little sad. Thanks for listening :)

  • i like reading these stories it s fun


  • It’s not nice to feel excluded.


  • I hope your feeling better now :) :) :) :) :) :) :)


  • Thanks guys, I know I have to be positive and yes it hurts I’d prefer not to involve my husband as he feels it as well. I think it’s just something I will have to deal with as they are also in business together and we aren’t. Must have just caught me on a sad day :)


  • It does hurt especially when it’s family & it’s not a nice feeling to feel excluded. I hope things start to improve but I suggest you & hubby support each other & try not to let it bother you but easier said than done I know.


  • I am so sorry you feel like this. Are you able to talk to them and let them know how you are feeling? Or is hubby able to drop a few hints ?
