My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events. When I finally do visit them all they can do is comment on my weight or how I look - basically anything they can nitpick about my appearance, and then guilt me for not visiting them more. Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
