    In As Much As...

    I've never really had a family... I've been fending for myself, basically since I was seven. I live alone, no family visits or calls. Haven't heard from them in a long time... Don't really know how my brothers are. They don't care how I am... My family are my friends.

    People underestimate just how nice it is to

    have good family. I have had friends who's parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles are lovely, yet they ***** and moan about them. It must be lovely to hop on a train and spend a weekend with a brother, auntie, cousin or grandparent. :/
