I’m having a difficult time connecting with a close relative of mine. She tends to isolate herself to the extreme (actively ignoring phone calls and texts, staying hunkered down in the house), and I just don’t know how to bridge the gap, and honestly I’m not sure that I want to.
With me being such an introvert, it’s really a big deal when I reach out and try to connect and make plans with others. When I have tried with her, she seems all for it, and then I don’t hear from her for weeks on end. The inconsistency has me quite irritated with her, and I’m ready to completely write her off.
Hubby, who is more forgiving than I, keeps insisting that I give her another chance, but I’m just not feeling it.
I think what bothers me the most is that she’s Boogie’s godmother, and has not really made any effort to connect with him. How am I supposed to trust you to take care of my kiddo in the event that something happens, and he barely even knows you?
Sometimes I feel that I made a mistake in selecting her. That makes me feel guilty, but her lack of involvement gives credence to my thoughts.
I want to make sure that I’m not making any impulsive decisions, but my heart is telling me that this may be a relationship I need to let go of.
Sometimes the hardest choices end up being the best ones.
Only time will tell if this is one of those times.
