To my face, P's parents backed me up/supported me on something that happened to me but then behind my back (to P and to someone else) said something entirely different (blaming the situation on me, and a related situation on my mom.)
I know that's not at all clear, but it's a long story and I don't know how to tell it and then get to the point. Which is this: These people, for better or for worse, are now my family. I WILL have to see them and interact with them in the future. But every time I think about this thing, I get mad/sad/hurt/pissed/betrayed all over again. How do I sit on their couch and chat or answer the phone or... knowing how they really feel?
-I don't especially want to have it out with them, as I suspect they will not change their minds on this one so it wouldn't really do any good. Not to mention that they could just lie to me like before and nothing would be resolved anyway.
-I can't have P talk to them because he doesn't really get why it bothers me so much (that's a whole other (heartbreaking) topic) and though he now sees it from my POV (or at least he says he does) there was a time where he didn't and was more in agreement with his parents. I'm guessing his true feelings lie somewhere in the middle.
-I don't see another way out other than to just get over it and play nice. I just wish I knew how to do that.
I'm sure this all makes very little (if any!) sense, but I had to get it out. I don't really have anyone to talk to about it who isn't involved or invested in some way. The situation itself makes me want to cry, but then add the "family response" part to it, and I'm just having a really hard time.
