It's a shame that your group makes you feel different. But being different isn't all bad. There is more than one path to the goal of being healthy. You have made different choices than your fellow group members, but I don't see them as less healthy. In fact, accepting that your family is who they are and not trying to change the reality is a different, and in my opinion not lesser, form of good mental health.

If you choose to maintain a relationship with them, because maintaining that relationship has some form of value to you, not trying to force them to see things the way you do could be seen as a reasonably healthy attitude, couldn't it?

I think it would depend on your feelings and attitudes about the connection. I hope your group is respectful of other people's choices.
