quick question for those of you who live on a different continent from your family:
Do you have any family members who still refuse to come visit you? Do you find this hurtful, and if so, have you ever broached the topic with them? What are their reasons for not visiting you? Do they still expect you to visit them often despite their refusal to do the same amount of work only in the opposite direction? Do you feel this is fair since you made the decision to live where you do? Are these people with whom you get along very well otherwise?
