If you could choose your family as your friends would you have any friends?
These are just to mention a few. Hopefully, your family has all of those qualities, but if you or they are not so lucky you will find that “familiarity breeds contempt”, ie your family seem to have a license to behave and treat you any way they feel fit. It is often our own expectations of what you want from your family that gets in-between who they are and who you want them to be.
So at the end of the day if you have a great family life, good for you! Cherish and know that you are one in a million. As for the rest of us, we continue to create our own family with networking and building friendships to substitute the lack of that warm fuzzy feeling that family is supposed to bring.
So be the best you can be in every relationship and remember to accept the things you cannot control and have the courage you to change the things you can, and so the serenity prayer says.
