Intent is not magical--that they may not mean any harm does not make it hurt less. Her family's actions and words are causing her serious emotional distress, and they are either ignorant of why, or they simply do not care--either way, they ARE at fault. She shouldn't have to take this shit from anyone, least of all her family.

If it were me, I'd deliver an ultimatum: start showing respect, or get used to not having me around. I realize, though, that this can be a very difficult thing to say to one's family, but I don't know what else to do. :(

Just remember that this is their problem, not yours, Pathia. None of this is your fault.
