My Friends Are My Family

I agreed that blood doesn't make a family. I've witnessed that in my life. I found that my relatives are never there when my family need help. Instead, those who have no blood ties are those who always there for me and my family. With open arms, they help us sincerely. I find this fact ironically. But then I realize that they whom many people say family aren't my family. They're just a bunch of people who happen to share the same blood ties with me.
My friends are always my family from then on.

Yes, it's just too ironic knowing that their relatives, and see what they did when we needed their help... nothing....

I totally agree with you!<br />
I've found that truth when I was a child and my family needed help but none of my relatives were there to offer their help<br />
It's sooo frustrating!

Thanks, Kindal. Yeah, he's so lovely, isn't he? :)<br />
I'm sorry too to hear ur story. You're right, I and my relatives are distant. We used to be close, but that was then. Sometimes looking at other family who are so close with each other breaks my heart. I wish I have the same family as theirs.<br />
Thanks for the comment, Kindal.

Your avi is frikeen adorable with that Squirrel face tee hee. I have come to learn the same thing, sadly. I have known people who treat me better then my own family. Faced with homelessness, chronically ill and in a lot of pain and am a good person and have always had an open door for my family and they would not let me come stay with them for a month when i've never done anything to them but be there for them and supported them emotionally when they would call and whine about their spouses. Wow I couldn't believe they could be so cold, so mean. So no they are not my family anymore. I agree, we are tied by blood but they don't mean much more to me then someone I just met off the street. <br />

I"m sorry you have experienced this too. It's sad when family doesnt care for eachother anymore.
