Dear Carolyn: How should I feel, personally, when extended family do not reply or do video calls during this quarantine? I do send them emails and texts. I’ve been reaching out to them for weeks.
I have lived most of my adult life away from them — moved to a different state at the beginning of my husband’s career. We have been married 42 years, and have a great, loving, supportive, financially secure relationship.
How should I take this when I hear of so many others having daily family calls and many group video chats?
