Do any of you (and judging by some threads, there probably are) love your nearest and dearest but really don’t like them ... where do you draw the line?
Grandchildren, children, siblings, parents, or in laws ... have you ever just said ... oh to hell with this, I’ve had enough?

Oh certainly yes !! I have a few relatives who I would never wish any harm to and do indeed love them but I don't really like them or their lifestyle,they don't interfere with my life and I don't with their's so all's well in the long run.

Quite a lot actually.

Just grit your teeth and be thankful you don't live with them, hopefully.

Fortunately no.

My feelings towards/about my eldest (and only surviving) son are definitely NOT something I would wish to share on here.

There are times, yes, when I can't stand my nearest and dearest.
I would draw the line at being disrespected, taken for granted or otherwise abused.

I would be gone; I'm not so great at walking on eggshells indefinitely.

I tell my little one that I love her but sometimes I don't like her
