Feeling resentful as no present from my parents
So, got married last week and should be on cloud 9! Instead I'm feeling frustrated and, in a way, like I'm not good enough. My parents didn't pay a penny towards my wedding, i did say it wasn't fair if they did as my 2 elder sisters were not married before and probably, by the looks of things, never will in the foreseeable future! I asked them both to be bridesmaids so they could both be part of the day and I could buy them a nice dress and have their hair done etc and feel special too.
Anyway, I was quite upset not to get a present from my parents!! Not even a drink brought for me at my wedding reception in the eve (all day drinks were paid for until the eve) I've been so independant from the age of 16, moved out at 17 and never asked for a thing! I thought they'd feel proud to have me as a daughter and want to let me know in some way! Didn't even get told I looked lovely or 'scrubbed up well' so not starting to think maybe they resent me! even if they turned around and said, let us pay for your sisters dresses or their travel but not a thing!
I'm just being selfish, maybe I should just concentrate on my own family now. As one thing for sure is I will never let my children feel like I do right now after their weddings!
sorry for the rant, I just don't know where else to vent
