Hello, I believe I may be able to help you with your concern. I understand that you feel you are a bad person for not cooking for the entire family, but this does not make you a bad person at all. Sometimes individuals only want to cook for themselves or for a small group of people, not an entire family gathering and that is your choice. Also maybe you do not feel as confident in your cooking ability to cook for the entire family either, so you are just acknowledging your limitations. And you also know that you are busy finishing your school work, so you do not have the time to cook for the entire family. Overall you are definitely not a bad person at all and you should not think of yourself as bad with regard to this situation.
I hope this answers your questions and gives you some guidance on this issue. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as I am happy to assist and support you regarding this issue.
