How to deal with a frustrating Aunt?

Home More advice Parents & Family

My aunt has issues I think going back to her childhood when she was given to relatives to look after when my grandmum was ill. Unfortunately, she was the only 1 of her 6 children to have done so. Since then she's had issues with not being part of the family. She married a foreigner and stays in a different country.

Unfortunately, l happen to live near her and whenever I visit her, I'm made to feel that I don't see her often enough etc. She often shows a scowling face and on my last visit raised her hand in the air indicating that she wanted to hit me for not visiting her for awhile. I'm totally fed up with her attitude and tend to avoid seeing her like the plague. Unfortunately, my parents are always asking me to go spend time with her.
