It's up to Rick what priority he deems more important: the amiable social flow with his family, or expressing himself and sharing that part of himself with them despite the likelihood that it will be fodder for arguments. While there will be an emotional fall-out either way, as a self-sufficient adult, he is not constrained in his decision-making.
I completely agree! I only mentioned it because it felt to me that the emotional family stuff was kind of being dismissed.
100% Rick's choice.
