I don't really feel like giving my Sister and her Husband anything for Christmas. I always send her and her husband something for Christmas, and sometimes I don't get anything from them. I give because it comes from my heart, but lately, I just don't feel like giving her anything, because she doesn't appreciate it. Last year, I sent her some very nice and "thoughtful" Christmas gifts, and what did I get? A Teddy Bear, in a box (not wrapped). I was so hurt by this. AND, to add insult to injury, the gift came late (as they always do). These "thoughtless" gifts made me really think that she does not care about me, or take the time to send something nice. She always sends me "Cheesy" gifts. I know she does not do that to her Husbands family.
What makes me even angrier, is that she will go shopping with our Mother, and she will make sure she gets "nice" things. She basically just uses my Mother. So, I am fighting my heart this Christmas, and she will just get a Christmas Card from me this year. My Boyfriend tells me that I always give-in, and always send her something, but I know she doesn't appreciate anything. I am a good person, caring and considerate, and I don't want to feel "GUILTY" for not sending anything. But on the other hand, she doesn't care about not sending me a gift, or sending me a "thoughtless" gift.
I know I am not alone in this. I appreciate your thoughts. Thank-you!
