I appreciate articles like these. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that nurturing relationships is very important. I also find articles like this trigger me personally. Many of these types of articles assume that family is important and means something and that’s great for people who have healthy family relationships, but for those of us who don’t and in fact the family relationship is damaging you put your efforts towards friends that are family rather than blood. I try to be sensitive to this dynamic as many of us do not have loving, supportive families. Putting forth a different perspective.
