I finally feel OK about his family’s events.
I don’t fit in with his family, but neither does he. They’re a little awkward and less than social, but I do what I can to engage them. I was nervous about the recent wedding and all the things that went along with it.
In the end, it was fine. No one made me feel excluded, I laughed, took photographs, made macarons, cut cake. I talked to everyone and made sure to dazzle them with my personality.
They may not be like mine, but I will continue to make an effort.
