Classy 97 Family Feud: When It’s Too Much Of A Good Thing

From October 7, 2020

Dear Liza,
I work in a small family business with my siblings, their partners and 1 cousin. We do everything together. Work, weekend, holidays, sometimes even vacations. We never get away from one another. I need to get away from these people! I love them, but it’s too much. Should I change jobs or stop going to holiday dinners? Something has to give. I can’t do another work Christmas party one weekend and then a family Christmas party with the SAME PEOPLE next weekend. No matter what I do it’s going to cause conflict. Which one is better?
