I'm glad you've gone onto to say that every situation has it's nuances because this doesn't work for every situation in my opinion. When my family doesn't support with me when my ex breaks up with me, I don't accept neutrality. I don't expect them to be sympathetic to him, call him, make sure he is ok.

But there's more to the story, obviously!! An interesting read, thank you!
