Do things that make YOU proud of yourself. Don't do them because of anyone else. Live your life in a way that makes YOU feel like a good person. Then give your family time to see the things that you have done...........the changes you have made. If they are not supportive at that point.....then focus on making new friends. Family does not have to be related by blood. Family can be close friends you choose who also choose you. By living your life doing things that make YOU feel like a good person you will likely be in a situation to meet people with similar beliefs and interests.
Be your own best friend. Do the things for yourself that you have always wanted them to do for you. LOVE YOURSELF!!
