Thanksgiving this year was the first one where we didn’t spend it with the rest of the family. It was just me, my mom, dad and brother. Instead of the traditional turkey dinner we did German thanksgiving instead (my dad’s German) I think I’ve been avoiding thinking ‘bout it but yesterday got me thinking if things will ever be the same again with my grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins. I actually know it never will be but like I said I avoid thinking about it most of the time. I think the answer that I struggle with more is whether or not I give a shit. I mean these people have treated me and my family pretty shitty for pretty much my entire life. If a friend treated me half as bad as they have I would have told them to fuck off a long time ago. Should I care about their existence in my life just because they’re ‘family’? Most people would say yes but maybe my tolerance for family mediated bullshit is lower than most peoples. I’ve had enough.
Despite all that, thanksgiving this year was really great. I love being with my pops ma and brudder. I also got to see some of my closest friends. We ate and drank extremely well and there was always a log on the fire. Man did I miss me some schnitzel too!
I guess even though my extended family kinda sucks, I really am thankful for my immediate family. We are all so close. There is nothing like the feeling of being at home especially during the holidays. At least I know the good things haven’t changed
