I joined a 'dysfunctional family' group on FB. I didn't realise that it wasn't a private group and commented regarding my family, something about having given up trying to be a part of a family who neither loved or respected me. Shortly after this my cousin, (fathers brothers daughter) contacted me to say that my comment had brought tears to her eyes and that she didn't know about this etc. I told her that I was sorry, hadn't realised that the group was not private. We chatted a bit on messanger then she gave me her email address.
She and her family are lovely people and I am sure her message was from concern and not being nosy.
But I've since wondered, do you think her giving me her email was an encouragement to open up? They know I'm not in contact with my family any more but I don't go into details. I dont like to seem that I'm asking for them to take sides etc.
Any thoughts or experiences, advice etc?
