How to You Deal With Fake Family Members?

Dealing with fake family members can be challenging and emotionally draining.

Here are some suggestions to help you navigate this situation:

1. Assess your expectations

It’s important to recognize that not all family relationships will be healthy or genuine.

Adjusting your expectations and accepting the reality of their behavior can help you avoid disappointment.

2. Set boundaries

Establish clear boundaries to protect yourself from their negative influence.

This may involve limiting contact, establishing specific topics to discuss or avoid, or avoiding family gatherings altogether if necessary.

3. Surround yourself with a supportive network

Seek out individuals who genuinely care about you and provide the love and support that you may be lacking in your family relationships.

This can include close friends, mentors, or other trusted individuals who can offer guidance and encouragement.

4. Focus on self-care

Prioritize your own well-being by engaging in activities that bring you joy and promote mental and emotional health.

This can include exercise, practicing mindfulness or meditation, pursuing hobbies, or seeking therapy or counseling.

5. Practice assertiveness

When interacting with fake family members, assertively communicate your boundaries, feelings, and needs.

Express yourself calmly but firmly, and do not feel obligated to engage in confrontations or arguments that may only exacerbate the situation.

Accept that you may not be able to have the kind of relationship you desire with them.


Every individual and family dynamic is unique, so it’s essential to find strategies that work for you.

Prioritizing your well-being and surrounding yourself with healthy relationships can help you cope with the challenges posed by fake family members.
