When Enough is Enough: A Stand Against Family Forgetfulness 🚫🎂💪

Imagine being the heart and soul of every family celebration for over a decade, only to have your own special day consistently overlooked. 😢💔 Our protagonist, dubbed the 'Family Party Planner Extraordinaire,' finally reaches her breaking point when asked to plan yet another party for a sister-in-law, amidst a backdrop of personal neglect. It's a tale of unreciprocated effort, the quest for self-worth, and the courage to say 'no more'. As she takes a stand, the family's reaction is a mix of outrage and disbelief. But is standing up for oneself really an act of selfishness, or a long-overdue act of self-care? 🤔💖 Let's dive into the collective wisdom of the internet for some perspective on this emotional rollercoaster. 🎢💬
