    God blessed me with the best family possible.

    I was always told by my family that no matter what happens I could go to them. We have our little fights every now and then but I know that they will always have my back. They helped me come out of my depression and taught me ways to deal with my anxiety. I love my crazy,weird...

    This will take over for I REMEMBER MY FAMILY.

    I chose a generic title this time, to make it harder for my enemies on here to deliberately flag my stories. ( namely, Lil'ol Lena - name altered as to not mention it directly.) You can still get to stories of those who have blocked you, so, blocking doesn't prevent those kind...

    I Understand

    It took me over 13 years to understand that life sometimes throws tough challenges at you. I have been broke, pregnant and homeless. I understand now these things only come to make you strong. Either you will allow life to handle you or you will handle it. Obstacles can...

    RIP Billy. I will always love you! I spoke with my brother on the phone this morning. He sounds good...he sounds strong. We joked....talked about everything except the fact that he's ill...we don't talk about that...his choice. We talk at least five times a week...sometimes...

    I feel like I am misunderstood.

    I used to be really exciting and always going and doing things. I have now become the exact opposite kind of person. I always stay at home, and I don't really have any friends any longer. I feel like I had a few good friends, but they started making lots of money and now we...

    My mother and father are

    both very hard working and a good example to my brothers and me. Not only do they work to bring monies into our home, but they make that home. They ensure all is just how we wish it to be, comfortable, honest and reassuring. This style we each carry with us as we embark on our...

    I have a cousin and she is always telling me

    Preserving What's Good About Family

    I've been struggling for a long time with the concept of 'family'. When I was growing up, my mother and father took us to regularly visit various members of both sides of the family, we had family cook outs with cousins, Aunts and Uncles, we had family Christmas parties, etc. My...

    Family is very Important.

    Another thing is, that one doesn't need to be related by blood. I have 3 cousins that were adopted. They aren't related to me by blood, but they are family. You can even go deeper then that. You can also consider many friends to be family as well. For example, as a believer in...

    It is interesting that

    as a society we accept the concept and practice of a head of a corporation, political entity, societal group, or government, but it is generally rejected as a correct model for a family. With my husband as the head of household we have order. He and I discuss family issues and...

    Update: My dads situation is improving.

    He's gone in for multiple tests over the past few months, sometimes going to the doctor two or three times a week. They're really trying hard to figure out what's making him so weak. They've done extensive heart tests, blood work, and have changed his medications, but, so far...

    Never forget about your family.

    You can work and work and work and give them everything but you are taking away the most important thing yourself.I have learned the hard way. This was the biggest problem in my marriage. I will never make that mistake ever again.

    I recently responded to a post by 'The Little

    even if they nag you. Be thankful for them, because they have given you everything you could ever have. Never bring them down because they have raised you up to your full potential. Love then just like they love you <3

    Family is important for me.

    Maybe we think differently but it doesn't matter as long as we respect and care about each other.Life isn't hard.U have good health,a good social life,nice family relationship,some hobbies and a good job.Thats it.Life sometimes simple sometimes complex.
