Social media is revealing more than folks think they are.
I wonder if family members do not realize most of us also see "other" social media outlets all the time...Family members who are always using the excuse that they live too far away, which they were closer, wish they had more off time, etc. etc. blah blah blah........heard it all......then checking messages on one of those other pages and noticed that both of my nephews have been traveling, traveling, all over the country, having a ball, living it up and at not one time did either of them stop to even wish my Mom a Happy 90th Birthday...it goes without saying they have not been to see her in a year...one of them over two years. This is a sweet woman who thought the sun rose and set on these two...I always was so proud of them and the men they had become. I am now totally disgusted with all their bragging about their fancy lives and their accomplsihments....many of which they would not have even had the opportunity at were it not for my Mom and Dad. I know their Dad, my brother, did not raise them that way, but now that they have moved off and become "big shots" they have apparently forgotten all about the family roots that helped them both along the way. It is so sad to me that young folks now seem to care less about their families. I remember as a child having such a family filled, happy life that was centered about love and family and NOT how much "stuff" you had....but these two pretty much came up with everything they ever asked for and that was part of the problem...I am just emoting ...but it just makes me sad. No phone calls, no cards, nothing...no acknowledgement whatsoever to my precious Mom....There are some times when I think dementia is a blessing. Am I the only one who is completely ashamed of their own nephews, grandkids, etc. ????
