my grandparents cut my family off years ago. They were emotionally and religiously abusive. For some reason I found myself wanting to contact them, just to upset them. Why do I feel this way?
I’m not sure exactly why you feel this way but i completely understand it. i had an insanely manipulative friend and i luckily cut them off a while ago but sometimes i miss them. i quickly remind myself of the terrible things they said/did and tell myself i deserve better. try to remind yourself every so often that you’ve come a long way and it’s good you’ve separated from the toxic people you once struggled with
Also remember that you want to be better than them, don't stoop to their level. Instead let them see you doing better on their own, make them realize that you didn't need them do be great
