Just because we’re related by blood, that doesn’t make you family to me. Especially if you’re not there for me when I need somebody, especially if you constantly criticize me, especially if you constantly try to change who I am, especially if you always bring back my mistakes from the past, and especially if you only talk about the bad qualities and never the good.
If you’re family, you’d love me no matter what. You’d accept me for who I am and what I do. You’re not supposed to bring me down, but if you do… you’re supposed to help me up. For me, family isn’t just blood relatives. It’s who’s there for you when you fall, who loves you unconditionally despite your flaws, and mistakes. I have family that isn’t blood. My own family isn’t really there for me, but I know I have others I can rely on. Trust and believe me when I say that they’re definitely the best of the best bestfriends.
It makes me think, think, and think.
Maybe then things would be so much more simpler. Think about it. You’ve seen the movies. People didn’t have cell phones. They didn’t constantly text each other. Things seemed better in my opinion.
They’d constantly talk on the phone, they’d actually talk to each other in person, make lots of plans. Basically they were more intimate. It made them grow closer to each other. Now that we have technology, people changed.
I’ve seen it. People would “date” or “talk”, but somehow manage to not interact with each other when in person. They wouldn’t even have a conversation, or hug, or say “hi”. What the hell right? And if they did, then it’d be all alone & in private.
I hate it, but it is what it is. Everything changes & you just have to learn how to adapt to it, right?
