Yeah, the point I was making is that it doesn't mystically make thousands of years pass on earth while you travel 4.2 lightyears to Proxima at .1c. Your relatives and friends (depending on age) would still be alive. Much older, but then so would you.
I'm not getting why this would be a problem anyway. It's not like they're going to turn around and come back.
Why not? A ~20-year round-trip is not so long that people couldn't survive the return journey. Coming home to a big celebration would sure beat dying in an alien solar system (unless there are actual aliens there.)
