What I call Family is not just parents and siblings. It is cousins- first, second, count till you lose the connection, half siblings, parents’ step children, in-laws, parents’ friends that become family so you refer to their kids as cousins, girlfriends that become sisters. The whole dynamic makes it family.
Family is love.
Some genuinely care about you, some only ask to feed their curiosity. It is important to know the difference.
Some would go an extra mile for you, some cannot be bothered how you go about. Show them love anyway.
Hate them or love them, you are stuck with them by blood or by association. Family teaches us values and exposes us to culture.
Family is blood. Family is roots. Family is a feeling. Family is important. Family is important to me.
