I would like your views on the situation as well. What would you do or what do you do in such situations? I reckon you must have faced such a situation given the fact that you can think of it and write about it. How do you handle the situation? Do you walk away or do you plain ignore them? Share your thoughts on the subject too, instead of getting everyone's view.
Everyone behaves differently in different situations. I have never had any misunderstandings, leave alone faceoff, with any of my relatives, either those by blood or those through marriage. I get along amicably with all of them.
If ever there is a misunderstanding (and I hope there is none), I would try to resolve it and not let it fester, for the simple reason that they are family and I would keep bumping into them at all family gatherings.

In fact, any get to gether is the best opportunity to erase these conflicts and start afresh as if nothing happened ever.
People will have ego and may be sometimes we are also considered egoist by others. Whatever the case may be these differences should be avoided and even if they are created, are to be resolved at an early opportunity.
Knowledge is power.

Even this challenging situation would ease
About a couple of months back everybody had to take part in marriage ceremony of a common friend's daughter. I too took part in the function. Three of the brothers in law were present there. Only one of them talked with me. Though I smiled and wished, the other two did not respond. The one who talked spent about ten minutes with me talking general topics without referring to the family disputes. Actually I am not involved in the issue. Only my wife is involved.
Such experiences I have faced with some of my friends too. I never showed any difference between any persons, but all others are not like that.

I get on well with all. Even if I meet people who hate me,I would say simple hello and leave. But if I happen to meet a person who abused me , I will never care them forever.
