Today I saw a family who I haven't seen in many years. I wouldn't say we were friends, but our lives were extremely intertwined when I was in school due to being similar age to each other, and the mother teaching me for many years. In fact, the mother was probably the single most influential person in my life outside of my parents. When I went to say hi, I got a curt happy Easter, and was ignore by everybody I wasn't literally shaking hands with. (Admittedly, mother whom I was closest to did not see me, but I am confident family recognized me)
My question isn't entirely about this in particular but more in general. Whenever a relationship (not necessarily romantic) is amiss, I get a sinking feeling in my stomach that changes my mood at least for a day, sometimes a few depending on how close the connection to the person/people, and also depending on whether I screwed up (foot in mouth) or just something is wrong. How do other mustachians deal with things like this without letting it ruin their day(s)? (I understand LOGICALLY the, who cares about them if they don't care about you mentality, but it doesn't help me feel better to think that, I just have to wait until the sinking feeling goes away. Today, being Easter, I figured it was worth asking how others deal with situation, especially since I want to enjoy my family party to the fullest extent)
As I won't have access to answer any questions, I will put it out there that I know I was (and am) not always the easiest person in the world. Definitely can see people why somebody might not want to be friends with me but I never expected this, much less on Easter and from a family I was fairly close to. I just assumed a quick catch up and move on would occur.
