Family Torn Apart: Was Excluding Lily Justified? 🤔

After years of rivalry and resentment, our protagonist decided to exclude her cousin Lily from a party introducing her fiancé to the extended family. The decision was made due to Lily's history of sabotaging her relationships, including one with her now ex-boyfriend. The family drama escalated when the truth was revealed at a BBQ, with Lily and her aunt accusing our protagonist of being petty and insecure. While her mom is disappointed and wants her to make amends, our protagonist is torn between feeling guilty and standing her ground. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
