You have to be there for your family!
You can’t do that, think about your family!
Do these sound familiar to you?
Fortunately I haven’t heard them in my family, but I had been married into a family where this seemed the most important. At least as long as you didn‘d dig deeper, becaus then the destinction wasn‘t that clear anymore. There were on the one hand some members of the family where this didn‘t apply and on the other hand friends that were simply declared as a brother or cousin.
So what does it mean to be family? I am of the opinion that it is only a thought structure. After all, if go back enough in time, we are all somehow connected with everybody else. Family is a definition and you are allowed to define your own.
Choose wisely and surround yourself with those who lift you up and appreciate your help!
You are and become like the five people you spend the most time with. It‘s a choice. It‘s your choice.
Take care my friend, Floh
