Don’t engage with the increasing conflict. Your family is going to stomp, scream, and throw a fit. They are going to call each other up and talk badly about you. They’re going to tell their children lies about you, and they’re going to do everything that they can to punish you for your blooming health, happiness, and self-determination.
