Why do the Holidays bring out the WORST in family members? I've always found better people outside of the family...

Seems like every year, right about this time, family members want drama, lies, and gossip to rule the day...WTF!

So much for being thankful and LOVING one another!


Anyone else experiencing this shit every year?

My husband and I have always lived half-way across the country from our relatives. That's the best way...love at a distance.

Maybe you're just not exposed to it most of the time, so you notice it because you usually aren't part of the drama.

That's how it is in my family, and I just instigate it and laugh...petty fools.

Yep, I dread the holidays because of my wifes family, and I don't want to, I wish I could enjoy being with them, its just impossible. Most of them are judgmental know-it-all idiots in varying degrees, a paradox that is impossible for me to even be courteous about for a few hours.

You can pick your friends, not so much your family.

I agree, my wife and I moved away from our families 25 years ago just to get away from all the drama.

Because it's one of the times in the year where the issues that are already there come into the surface as the pressure and tension of having to experience those issues inward come about.
The personalities and neurosis and pathologies that people get to hide while living their daily lives are exposed because it's those closest to your upbringing that helped bring these things about in the first place.
It's like a clash of all the inner children that don't get to play so at times of gathering, they're still fighting for the love and care that wasn't given properly.
So it's like little children trying to be adults yet very inmature in their pain.

I love being around my family...Sometimes I have to go months without making fun of them and cracking jokes at their expense...The holidays give me a chance to get caught up...whilst drinking...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!
