I am shortening this story but my parents parted ways when I was 17. I am having recurring issues with family members and need some help. I just had a fight with my much younger half sister over the phone. We have a complicated relationship and not really much of a relationship at all. Every time I think it is getting better something will happen that tells me it is not better that it is the same. I have lowered my expectations and it is was it is. She just graduated highschool. I drove 8 hours with my family to be there and put together a photo album of old pictures of when she was a kid and me with her as we were close when she was a little girl. The day was fine and she seemed to like the gift. After the grad we went out to dinner. She sat at the end of the table next to her friend. I noticed this friend was not friendly with me when I met her and the 2 of them sat whispering all night, with the friend looking in my direction. I tried not taking it personal and told myself I did not know what they were talking about. At one point I was telling my aunt a story about one of my children handing me a booger and held my hand out. I turned immediatly and heard the friend say, "And she said, ewww!" and had her arm up in the air with her finger out just as I had done and said. They were both laughing. I stared at them and they both looked up at me at the same time and stopped laughing immediatly. I was really confused and have been hurt ever since. It did not help her mother sat across from me and ignored me all night like I had done something wrong. She did not make eye contact or talk to me and when we left, hugged my husband and walked away from me and I have no idea why. We are far from close but haven't had issue in a number of years and are cordial with eachother. My sister is leaving for school in a couple days and called to thank me for a birthday gift I sent. I tried talking to her without showing emotion and told her to take care and I would talk to her later after of course telling her good luck with everything blah blah blah. She asked me what was wrong. I did not want to tell her and said nothing don't worry about it. She kept asking me and said did I do something and then I told her. She began yelling me that it wasn't true , i am looking for issues, this is why we are not close, putting it all on me. I didn't want to bring it up and really did want to let it go. I know what I heard and saw and it was not done in a nice way and this is not the first time. I am sick of trying to act like the way I am treated does not affect or hurt me. I am so afraid she will cry about it to my Dad and he will be out of my life because that has happened before. I don't know what to do. I have a lot of guilt for not having good feeling toward this girl but I don't know how to act like I am ok with somebody when I am not.
