Here's how every Summer Family Reunion goes down- as if you were Pete Davidson.

Your parents try to tell you that this reunion won't be as bad as you think it will be.

They're wrong.

However, upon walking through your relative's front door, some aunt or grandparent is already judging you.

media.giphy.com

Yes Grandma, it's called F A S H I O N, ever heard of it? Oh wait, THAT hole? No, that one's an accident.

You're not quite sure how to interact with your extended family that you haven't seen since last summer.

media.giphy.com

Are we going for a hand shake or a hug here?

Bonding with your cousins is even harder.

media.giphy.com

What... isn't this what you fellow young people talk about...? No...?

Then one of your family members asks you one of those cliche convo-starters like, "So, how are you?"

media.giphy.com

I know what you meant Aunt Ethel, but I'm in no mood for your games.

...or even worse, they say, "Fill me on how your year went! Tell me everything!"

media.giphy.com

DON'T DO THIS TO ME AUNT ETHEL! I'M ALREADY UNCOMFY IN THIS SOCIAL SITUATION! DON'T MAKE ME SPEAK!

Or, icing on the skin crawling conversation cake, someone asks about school.

media.giphy.com

I dunno, I paid thousands of dollars to sleep through my 8 a.m. a few too many times. Is that what you wanted to hear, ETHEL!?

Finally, dinner's ready and you yeet away from the torturous chit-chat and towards Grandma's famous dinner rolls which you haven't had since last summer.

media.giphy.com

Sorry Ethel, can't talk- too busy- harumph- eating -hork snork- these rolls. Can someone pass the butter?

Of course, your uncle makes the same joke at the table that he made last year... and the year before that... and the year before that...

media.giphy.com

You are the Master of the Polite Sympathy Laugh.

Someone inevitably will bring up that very embarrassing story of your when you were 8 that you hoped would die 11 years ago when it happened.

media.giphy.com

Drop it, Grandma. Just drop it. OKAY, SO I WAS 8 AND PUT THE BATHROOM'S VAGASIL ON AS SUNSCREEN. DROP IT.

... or Grandpa starts on a tirade about how you and your cousins are wasting your summers inside.

media.giphy.com

Well, Someone has a very reasonable fear of needing to use sunscreen after a Certain Incident, so hop off my case Grandpa.

This tirade eventually morphs into the long-awaited political battle-royale.

media.giphy.com

Grandpa, c'mon, I just wanna enjoy these dinner rolls and avoid Aunt Ethel in PEACE!

Now you and your poor cousins have to answer all your relatives questions about being a "Millennial."

media.giphy.com

Yeah, I'm a feminist. No, that doesn't mean I'm better than men or any other gender. Yes, there are more than two genders. Can someone pass the butter!

Yup. If you weren't sure before, now you're certain you need to hide your sexuality from certain relatives.

media.giphy.com

Who's that girl you see me with on all my social media? Uh... my friend! My really good friend!

Finally, the topic changes and you and your achievements become the focus.

Yes, I did pass all my classes! Even though I slept through way too many 8 a.m. classes, somehow I didn't fail!

media.giphy.com

Then it changes to how perfect your perfect cousin is, and the flame of the cousin rivalry is reignited.

media.giphy.com

Yeah, well did Jason help set the dinner table today? Hmm! Bet his academic scholarships can't fold napkins as nicely as I did here. Sorry, MANY academic scholarships.

Speaking of your perfect cousins, they may have gotten all the good genes, but your summer fashion sense hasn't changed from a hoodie and jeans.

media3.giphy.com

No, I don't want to put shorts on. No, I'm not too hot. I DON'T WANT TO GET SUNBURNT, AND YOU KNOW I CAN'T USE SUNSCREEN, SO DROP IT, AUNT ETHEL!

Finally, you've had enough and try to retreat to your your phone, behind your parents, or your aforementioned hoodie.

media.giphy.com

Grandpa's #MeToo questions can't get to me in here.

Or you make a terrible excuse to go to the solitude of your guest room for a breather from all this socializing.

media.giphy.com

Oh, me? Yeah, I'm "not feeling too well." I might take a "nap." Works every time.

However, your parents will come in, insisting you should come back out and socialize.

media.giphy.com

Mom, if I don't have a minute alone, I might spontaneously combust from social interaction.

When they leave and you're finally alone, your guilt starts to build and this inevitably creeps into your brain.

media.giphy.com

Dang it, Mom. Why you gotta guilt-trip me so well?

Finally, you come back out and do that "Polite Listening" conversation with all the old folks, wishing you could be anywhere else.

media.giphy.com

Yes, the dinner rolls WERE really good... Oh, of course, I'd love to hear about the recipe... Wow, whole wheat flour- I never woulda guessed, Grandma.

You're certain all the home footage of you and your relatives from today will look like this.

media.giphy.com

Aunt Ethel... please... I don't want to "twerk" with you.

Even though you're uncomfortable, you can use this time to rake in the Instagram likes.

media.giphy.com

#Family #LoveThem #Blessed #Fam #TogetherForever #JohnsonFamilyReunion #Johnsons5Ever

It finally clicks that you're stuck with these people forever, and that's okay. Even though their insufferable, you love them because you know you're insufferable too, and they love you right back despite it.

media.giphy.com

Jeez, these people saw me slather myself with mounds of Vagasil and still willingly talk to me. Well, if that's not family...

You look around at your family and smile, because they've been with you since day one and always will be there.

media.giphy.com

I can't wait for next year's reunion. Wait- Aunt Ethel is twerking again. The feeling of love is gone.

To The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

A Big Thank You To My Parents, I Wouldn't Be Where I Am Without Them

You should be thanking yours, too.

As I get older, I see the people around me kind of distance themselves from their families, even their parents. I know people who don't even really make an effort to talk to their parents. Sometimes, it's for good reason because even family relationships can be toxic and that's not something you should deal with. But I know some people who just kind of box their parents out for no reason at all.

I've always been close with my family, and frankly, there's nothing wrong with that. But even if I weren't, my parents brought me into this world and raised me to be the best person I can be. They taught me life lessons, helped me with my school work, explained the importance of things in life to me, drove me to every sports practice, game, dance recital, and event that I asked them to.

I would never turn my back on the two people who've done the most for me, who made sure I always had a roof over my head and food to eat, who made sure I had nice clothes to wear, who have provided everything I could need for me over the 21 years of my life.

I wouldn't be the person I am today without my parents. I wouldn't have the morals and life lessons that I do. I wouldn't have the nice things that I have. I wouldn't have the nice car that I have. I wouldn't have the money to be able to attend college.

Even though I don't say it enough, I could never explain just how grateful I am for the parents that God gave to me.

My parents did the best they could to give me and my brothers the things that we wanted and asked for. They have both worked their butts off for years so that our family can have nice things.

So many people cut their parents out or just don't credit them for the things they've done for them, but I can't do that. My parents are the reason I am where I am today.

So, to my mom and dad, thank you for being the best you could be and making me and the boys the best that we can be.
